"Eyes Of The World" as written by Jerome J. Garcia and Robert C. Hunter....
Right outside this lazy summer home
You ain't got time to call your soul a critic no
Right outside the lazy gate of winter's summer home
Wondering where the nut-thatch winters
Wings a mile long just carried the bird away

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has it's beaches, it's homeland and thoughts of it's own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
But the heart has it's seasons, it's evenings and songs of it's own

There comes a redeemer, and he slowly too fades away
And there follows his wagon behind him that's loaded with clay
And the seeds that were silent all burst into bloom, and decay
And night comes so quiet, it's close on the heels of the day

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has it's beaches, it's homeland and thoughts of it's own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
But the heart has it's seasons, it's evenings and songs of it's own

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own
And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home
Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone
Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has it's beaches, it's homeland and thoughts of it's own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
But the heart has it's seasons, it's evenings and songs of it's own

    General CommentThis song is just full of beautiful imagery - i love the chords they use, it's so invocative of summer and lots and lots of open space and beaches and the sea.......

    I agree with you sexwax, i don't know of any real meaning to the song as a whole but rather each line is a different idea.

    I particularly like "there comes a redeemer but he slowly too fades away". It's possibly talking about prophets such as Jesus. Although Jesus was great and all his messages were for a different time so eventually you need new messages, more applicable to your time and place.
