Re: Song lyrics and other cloaked references
Yeah, I'm pretty sure The Beatles went along with it, because there are numerous lyrical references after that album.
On the cover of Sgt. Peppers, they're all standing over what looks like a grave with flowers shaped like a left handed bass, Paul is holding a black instrument and has a hand suspended over his head.
Abbey Road is supposed to be a funeral procession, where Paul is barefoot, eyes closed and out of step. (He's supposed to be a corpse)
On Magical Mystery Tour, they're wearing costumes, one of which is a black walrus, which is supposed to be a folk symbol of death.
In 'Glass Onion', John sings, "And here's another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul."
There's a ton more, and I always thought it was really cool because of the way they rode it.
"A wise man is wise because he knows that he knows nothing."
