Trodden out the Mills

from Emily Dickinson – The Brain, Within it's Groove on Rap Genius

Meaning

So the question becomes, does one need to move the turnpikes and the mills? Perhaps it is the only way to harness the power of the water. This conceit seems to suggest the power of an idea, that must change all of industry and the world around it.
