TREY: That’s right because Icculus lives on top of the mountain. He is the great and knowledgeable man, and that’s why Colonel Forbin on this day is climbing up to find him, because he wants to find that great book. That great book that has helped to lead his life and all the people of Gamehendge. That great and wonderful book with all of the knowledge that you and I might need to run our lives in a beautiful way in peace and harmony with nature. Because, sometimes you know, sometimes it’s hard. You get stuck in places and you look around and say, “What can I do? What can I do to help? You know, the world is becoming this way, and if I only had someone to guide me. Help me out! Help me out!” [backing vocals begin]
“If I had someone to guide me and tell me how I should run my life, my life, not my life, not your life, in fact, not life at all. But if I can just find that person, that thing.” Well let me just tell you people something. Let me tell you something right now. I know something because I found that book. I found the book to tell me the way to run my life. And you, you can find the book. You can read the book. You guys know how to read. You can read a book too. [unintelligible] And you can stop making these awful decisions every day. [unintelligible for a while]
So why don’t you go on, find this book! Read it! I’m telling you to read it! Don’t just stand there! [unintelligible] Find the book! Read the book! Find the book! This book it’s written, it’s written by, it’s written, it’s written by the great and knowledgeable Icculus!
[“Icculus” continues until its conclusion and the "Mockingbird" narration continues.]
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
