equent topic of discussion in the tab groups is 'what are the lyrics to
'Stairway To Heaven' about, anyway?'. Well, the narrator obviously isn't
going to build a *physical* stairway to heaven - for one thing, how could
he move it around without bumping it into everything? Instead, 'build a
stairway to heaven' is a *metaphor* - like, you know, sometimes words have
two meanings.
