No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. General Comment i feel like this song's about puttin the past away. General Comment I think you guys are trying to read too much into this. While he could indeed have implied some of the things mentioned, it is more basic.
And the best lyric of all, "if you plant ice, you're going to harvest wind", is simply what is stated: ice is a cold substance that melts away and leaves nothing. If you don't plant the seeds of love in your life, you harvest wind. The tower represents inspiration. But once you gain it from the tower, then take a seed, because "Wildflower seed on the sand and wind" doesn't grow here.
May the four winds blow you home again. In Franklin's tower the four winds sleep Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep Wildflower seed on the sand and wind May the four winds blow you home again. Lean hounds: Inspiration, magic, freedom is guarded here at the lighthouse, nothing grows in sand or stone, may you come and get it, take Franklins Tower - The Grateful Dead - Franklins Towerand grow it. Flag haveagratefulride on December 09, I like both these ideas, for me so many of Hunters words are evocative of a mood, feeling or an idea.
What always comes to my mind in Frankilns is rebirth, as in shake off your habits that are holding you back, keeping you stuck and keeping you from growing into the beautiful powerful force for love that I believe we are all born capable of. So easy for me to get distracted in the mundane or petty.
I'll stop short of tying this into a religious relate! The idea for me is pay attention to growing Hold My Hands - Milton Henry - Branches And Leaves own spirit as a force for good. Flag riter on January 12, My Opinion Ok. This entire discussion is completely invalid. How can any of you truly claim to appreciate and claim to understand the Grateful Dead when none have you even noticed at the beginning of these "lyrics" that when it says "Wallflower seed I do realize that this is one word, however it can change the entire meaning of the song because a transition from a wallflower to a wildflower is very significant of time, growth and development.
It signifies that the subject Franklins Tower - The Grateful Dead - Franklins Tower the beginning has transformed greatly when in fact this is not the case at all. So perhaps all you fake deadheads out there could at least download a couple of live concerts so you can try to understand the dead? General Comment In general, I think if you over analyze lyrics you are missing what Grateful Dead was about.
They created a feeling with their songs, not precise meanings. Backup a little and feel the song. It's about a wallflower becoming a wildflower. It's about birth, life, freedom.
It's about people emigrating to America to laugh their past away or just make it for one more day. Ben Franklin's Liberty Bell Ein Brief Nach Hause - Gitte Haenning* - Die Grossen Erfolge Der 80er in that tower is like a beacon for those looking for freedom.
It can ring, turn night to day It can ring like fire when you loose your way. Roll away, the dew. Franklins Tower - The Grateful Dead - Franklins Tower up, keep going, seek freedom, survive. General Comment i feel franklins tower represents freedom And rollin away the dew is just Hand On The Buns - The Beatles - Rough Notes on.
Link s I think taking a look at Hunter's own response to someone writing about Grateful Dead sons, and in particular Franklin's Tower, would be an excellent place to start!
Here is a link to it: jlovkay. Time flows and we are pushed along with it. Rolling away the dew is Loving Machine - Powerhouse (13) - Lovin Machine power that is only wielded by the force of time and represents Franklins Tower - The Grateful Dead - Franklins Tower passage of time and the promise of a new day.
The passage of time again is used as a cleansing force to heal wounds it can ring like fire when you lose your way. I am uncertain who Franklin is. However, I do not think that the ringing of the bell always indicates the death of an individual.
On the front is old Ben himself. One the back is Freedom Hall in Philly in which the liberty bell rests. A slang word for money is dew. It's always been a status symbol to roll up a franklin and snort. Roll away the Dew! If you plant ice, you gonna harvest wind!
