"The Great Estates" as written by and Judah Dadone....
We beg rebirth
to take us up
Parade our souls
out by the back gate
Some claw the ground
Some cut the air
Some warm the seas
But what will you be and when?

And I swim through dirt
To find you out
And a wail without his family history is
And I used to shout
To find my way
The water find my distant memory failed
Look into the reigns of a great estate
Better lights pull you out of the ground
Seep into the wood of the great estates
Animals your soul will guide
Give into the reigns of the great estates
Better lights pull you out of the ground
Seep into the wood of the great estates
Animals your soul will guide
Give into the reigns of the great estates
Better lights pull you out of the ground
Seep into the wood of the great estates
Animals your soul will guide
Give into the reigns of the great estates
Better lights pull you out of the ground
Seep into the wood of the great estates
Animals your soul will guide

    My InterpretationSurprised no one has commented on this song yet. I think this is my favorite track on the Weathervanes album.
    While all the FW lyrics seem really ambiguous to me, I love this song and I get a sense of the cyclic nature of things from it. Rebirth is menioned, souls are mentioned as guides, and being pulled out of the ground. It's very mellow and relaxing.

    General CommentJust saw them last night in LA. Judah explained that this song is about having a spirit animal and being reborn as it in the next life.
