Grantchester Meadows Lyrics

Icy wind of night, be gome.
This is not your domain.
In the sky a bird was heard to cry.
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
Belied a deathly silence that lay all around.
Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox...

    You idiot!
    Keep doing acids without any understanding...
    The fun part is you have no imagination even if you do acids!!
    GRANCHESTER MEADOWS IS A MASTERPIECE OF POETRY!
    It first describes sounds and movements of countryside in the dawn when night gives place to the day and sounds start taking place.
    Then you have a short motion of a kingfisher fishing... (The clever aspect is that the lyrics makes you imagine everything just from the splash of water flushing back into water again).
    THE RIVER OF GREEN: did you ever see wind hitting grass and did you ever noticed how colours change in different shades of green?
    Well... It definitely looks like water flowing but maybe you just don't understand...
    SO JUST DO NOT WRITE ABOUT MAJOR ART IF JUST CAN'T DREAM!!!

    Well this is my own opinion and I'm thinking that this is simply just a crazy acid trip. I mean when you look at the lyrics compared to the affects of acid (and i have done acid so i would know what happens)"And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
    Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea."
    This is simple. sometimes on acid ambient things can talk to you. Like for instance on my 2nd acid trip ever i was sitting in my friend's room on his bed and this picture on his wall started talking to me. and i mentioned something about it and the 3 of us all got a shared hallucination. it was pretty cool. Im thinking that maybe the band shared a hallucination and saw this river laughing as it went into a bigger body of water. You have to remember on LSD your vision isnt totally changed. Its just your interpretation of what you see is changed. So if i were tripping now i would see my computer like i would now although it might be bending and fluctuating but there would still be a computer there non the less. so yeah this is simply just a good trip that the band experienced together and i might be wrong but it fits well with the lyrics.
