"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.

    General CommentThis is one of the most deeply philosophical GD songs of all time. It rivals Terrapin Station in its all encompassing glance at the matters of existence.

    "Your rain falls like crazy fingers"-referring to the creator or universal energy"keeping time".

    "Recall the days that still are to come, some sing blue(indigo ray)(the ascencion of mankind into higher dimensional loving beings understanding the meaning of it all which is that god is love)


    "Hang your heart on weeping willow, stray down to the water(referring to the river of life, which flows, meaning to let it flow).


    "Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow tapping at the window, touch your hair
    So swift and bright strange figures of light float in air." The cloud hands are ascended masters(look up rainbow ascencion. Most ascended figures are seen hovering above a rainbow. Strange figures of light is because they have transformed to their light bodies in the 5th dimension for helping others much like Jesus did. Tapping at your window is the window of your soul, helping guide you and make it thru.


    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. The gold ring is perfection in being perfectly imperfect or ourselves. Being yourself is the most important thing you can do while you are here. Find your path, chase your gold ring, and be you.

    In conclusion, I can't help but think that Robert Hunter was almost given the keys to existence from someone who knew. His words in almost every song but this one more than others, leads me to beleive he was given the most secret information from higher beings or extraterrestrials. If you think this assertion is too much, look at it thru the microscope. This is what he meant. Look up 2012 ascencion.
