Jimmy Webb,who wrote the song,said it was written in the form of a complex metaphor for the end of a love affair,when everything breaks down badly.Thus the strange imagery can be understood in that light.
He also said he wrote it at the end of the 1960's when there was a lot of hippies and psychedelia around and at the same time the Beatles were writing psychedelic lyrics like "Strawberry Fields For Ever" and "I am the Walrus.."(you are The Eggmen,goo-goo-ga-juub..)
