    For those unfamiliar, the lyrics…
    …the lyrics.

    “There must be some kinda way out of here
    Said the joker to the thief
    There’s too much confusion
    I can’t get no relief


    Businessmen, they, they drink my wine
    Plowmen dig my earth
    None will level on the line
    Nobody of it is worth, hey


    No reason to get excited
    The thief, he kindly spoke
    There are many here among us
    Who feel that life is but a joke


    But you and I, we’ve been through that
    And this is not our fate
    So let us not talk falsely now
    The hour is getting late, hey


    Hey


    All along the watchtower
    Princes kept the view
    While all the women came and went
    Barefoot servants too


    Outside in the cold distance
    A wildcat did growl
    Two riders were approaching
    And the wind began to howl, hey


    All along the watchtower
    All along the watchtower

    Thanks for that. Now I understand that The Joker is dxselic.

    I get it, the thief is Robin Hood.

    There is a reason for Bob Dylan’s voice sounding the way it does. If you understood the lyrics, most of his songs wouldn’t make any sense.

    Dogsniff, yeah, I was working on that one too.


    And I guess because of all the “confusion”, the joker starts talking to the Leaf, instead of the Thief, as Radish said earlier, and I think crweaver was alluding to it too, but I didn’t get it.

    Not even after what Varnes said. Sigh….


    I recognised the connection with the Dylan song….. but I thought the leaf and Robin Hood meant there was another song or plot mixed in….


    Maybe the “leaf” also represents the “herb” that I think Hendrix added to the lyrics.

    Honestly, I don’t partake but, as you can see, I don’t need to!
