Lyric time again

Plant and Page stayed on a cottage in south wales, which was then known as Bron-Yr-Aur (the golden breasts) Small hills of green grass reflecting golden sunrise, blue water and bluer sky. Then they took a ride along the ponds, the meadows equipped with a set of vocal chords and a guitar respectively, and came up with one of the best zeppelin songs of all times.

Zeppelin is considered to be the father of rock music, loud distortions and cacophonous drumming. What they composed here was the sweetest harmony a single guitar can produce. Along with all other zeppelin songs, if you haven't listened to these, it's an incomplete experience.

That's the way it is.

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river,
And weren't those tears that filled your eyes,
And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying,
Had they got you hypnotized?
And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers,
But all that lives is born to die.
And so I say to you that nothing really matters,
And all you do is stand and cry.
--- That's the way it is - Zeppelin III
