    It's about building a town across what was once fields and brooks. He's lamenting a time when he dipped in a finger and threw in a flower, which he can no longer do, now that they've concreted the grass.

    He say that although they built their town over it he can still how it was in his head.

    Kind of "They paid paradise and put up a parking lot"

    Hope this helps
