Just thought you might find this interesting:
In the song Terrapin Station, there is a reference to "From the Northwest Corner."
This is a Masonic reference. It pertains to Masonic ritual in which all new masons are placed in the Northwest Corner of the lodge, standing there a just and perfect mason (the implication is that you are as yet unsullied, much as an infant is considered innocent, having not yet experienced the world). This dovetails nicely to the lnext line about a brand new crescent moon.
Furthermore, the reference to Venus may also be a masonic reference, because venus is known as the Morning Star, and has several masonic references, mostly related to its position in the east. Furthermore, it is the morning star that sailors followed, east to the new world.
Just one of several masonic references, hope that you find this helpful Thanks for all of your work,

didn't know that. You mean these Freemasons are Deadheads also? Well, that totally blows my mind and Zoombia's too. We are in thick, my American brother.
It does seem possible? I do not want to believe it! "Say it ain't so Jerry!" We are in the thick of it indeed. Watch your back brother!
