I was commissioned by a Grateful Dead fan to interpret Robert Hunter's lyrics* for Terrapin Station;  his only request was that the words could be read.

Inspiration, move me brightly
Light the song with sense and color
Hold away despair
More than this I will not ask
Faced with mysteries dark and vast
Some rise, some fall, some climb
