I sure don't care what they mean in THIS song. They are well-chosen words, as they flow very well with the music, but rather "nonsensical" if you try to analyze their meaning.
I DO care about a bunch of OTHER songs' lyrics, as I am very much impressed when a song comes together so completely, with genius music AND lyrics that not only roll of the tongue, but have wonderful meaning, or tell a great story. "Terrapin Station" is a prime example. I love the lyrics to "Music Never Stopped", as well. My favorite is probably "Dupree's Diamond Blues."

"If we had any nerve at all, if we had any real balls as a society, or whatever you need, whatever quality you need, real character, we would make an effort to really address the wrongs in this society, righteously." - Jerry Garcia
