"Unbroken Chain" as written by Philip Lesh and Robert M. Peterson....
Blue light rain
Whoa, unbroken chain
Looking for familiar faces
In an empty window pane

Listening for the secret
Searching for the sound
But I could only hear the preacher
And the baying of his hounds

Willow sky
Whoa, I walk and wonder why
They say love your brother
But you will catch it when you try

Roll you down the line boy
Drop you for a loss
Ride you out on a cold railroad
And nail you to a cross

November and more
As I wait for the score
They're telling me forgiveness
Is the key to every door

A slow winder day
A night like forever
Sink like a stone
Float like a feather

Lilac rain, unbroken chain
Song of the saw-whet owl
Out on the mountain, it'll drive you insane
Listening to the winds howl

Unbroken chain of sorrow and pearls
Unbroken chain of sky and sea
Unbroken chain of the western wind
Unbroken chain of you and me

    General CommentAre you sure its not "willow sky, what would I want and wonder why?" Animal Collective sampled it and its the name of their song. Just wondering.
