Chords, and coins, and restless poems end up slander
When my baby is born there will surely be a lasting shore

Listless birds perch in soft, green herds, tickling the wind
With fall they will sleep with parched, swollen throats, and I've done nothing

But, with spring I will propagate their thirst to blinding eyes
Blinding eyes

Planting seeds can't be the only way, the only way
Planting seeds can't be the only way out

Planting seeds can't be the only way to find a simple day, a simpler way

    My Interpretationthe concept of the 'child' everyone speaks of makes perfect sense, yet i also have my own opinion of the lyrical meaning:

    i interpreted the last three lines of the song as very literal in content (planting said seeds soil). henry david thoreau wrote a book entitled "walden" which depicted man with a personal declaration of freedom , spiritual discovery, and self-reliance all the while disregarding the rest of society to flee into the woods for a more satisfying life style.

    "planting seeds can't be the only way to find a simple day, a simpler way" is this sort of cry of doubt about how can it really be so that in this world the only way to experience complete happiness is to let all material possessions go and separate yourself from the hardships of society.

    General Commentits definitely not about that.

    its about having a child.
    and it's summed up with

    Planting seeds cant be the only way to find a simple day, a simpler way.

    because thats what people do to fullfil there lives.
    have a family.
    and he is saying that can't be the only way to find fullfillment and simplicity in life.
