"Crazy Fingers" as written by Jerome J. Garcia and Robert C. Hunter....
Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder keeping time
Recall the days that still are to come some sing blue.
Hang your heart on laughing willow stray
Down to the water, deep sea of love
Beneath the sweet calm face of the sea swift undertow.

Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know,
See how it feels in the end.
May lady lullaby sing plainly for you soft, strong, sweet and true.
Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow tapping at the window, touch your hair
So swift and bright strange figures of light float in air.

Who can stop what must arrive now? something new is waiting to be born
Dark as the night you're still by my side shine inside .
Gone are the days we stopped to decide where we should go, we just ride.
Gone are the broken eyes we saw through in dreams gone, both dream and lie.

Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know,
Feels like it might be all right,
While lady lullaby sings plainly through you love still rings true.
Never could reach it, just slips away but I try.

    My InterpretationTo me, Crazy Fingers is a death bed prayer, a conversation with the creator, the omniscient possessor of the fingers of rain and light who can recall what still is to come, in the final moments before "Lady Lullaby" sings her song and "something new is born". It is a recognition that without the hidden risks and hardships life would not be what it is and those things, the undertow, only serve to heighten the grandeur of the "deep sea of love" that is life. In those last moments we must necessarily let go and shed our illusions of control and the delusions under which we have lived in life. Though we may never have achieved the gold ring of perfection in existence the important thing is that we tried now that it is midnight on this carousel ride.
