Bartender, please, fill my glass for me.
This song of epic proportions originally came into the light as "Reconcile our Differences" / "On Bended Knee" on the 1999 Dave and Tim
winter tour. Many claim the song sounded eerily like Leave Me Praying
and possibly co-evolved from the same song as Don't Drink the Water. Reconcile Our Differences went through several stages of lyrical evolutions after finally being realized as Bartender by the end of the tour. However, it wasn't until the Summer of 2000
that the song finally came into its own after being reworked in the Lillywhite Studio Sessions into a climactic masterpiece. Times for this song are far from an exact science. When it is played out of Big Eyed Fish, song time starts as soon as Boyd's droning intro becomes the most prominent thing you hear.
