“The Eleven”
Artist: Grateful Dead
Albums: Live/Dead (1969)
Composers: Lesh, Hunter

No more time to tell how, this is the season of what
Now is the time of returning with our thought
Jewels polished and gleaming
Now is the time past believing the child has relinquished the reign
Now is the test of the boomerang tossed in the night of redeeming

Eight-sided whispering hallelujah hatrack
Seven faced marble eyed transitory dream doll
Six proud walkers on the jingle bell rainbow
Five men writing with fingers of gold
Four men tracking down the great white sperm whale
Three girls waiting in a foreign dominion
Riding in the whalebelly, fade away in moonlight
Sink beneath the waters to the coral sands below
