|Originally Performed By||Mike Gordon|
|Original Album||Inside In (2003)|
This song, documenting Mike's apparent willingness to trade anything from bureaucratic hassles to precious stones in exchange for admission to some sort of finishing school so transformational that its graduates have been known to rave about turning their old selves "inside in," has never been performed publicly by Phish. It was, however, recorded by Phish during the Round Room sessions resulting in a version that didn't stray too far from the version on Mike's vastly underrated studio effort, Inside In. Anyone interested in hearing a more stretched out version of the song should seek out one of the performances from Mike's 2003 solo tour; the 10/16/03 version should do the trick.

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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
