Franklin's Tower to Help On The Way.

The title may have come from a fragment of lyric that Robert Hunter wrote for "Help On The Way" that was never used:

Beautiful lie
You can pray
You can pay
Till you're buried alive

Blackmailer blues
Everyone in the room
Owns a part of the noose
Slipknot gig
Slipknot gig
Slipknot gig

Did someone say
Help on the way
Well, I know
Yeah, I do
That there's help on the way

I don't know if it has anything to do with the metal band slipknot's name.
