well the palm trees grow real tall down south california
and i'll ride my bike real fast or slow
i gotta warn ya

and i don't know if i can answer all those letters
and i don't know if i'll get out of here and get better

and i don't know if i'll be coming home
and i don't know if i'll be coming home soon

well they feed you twice a day 'round here
i gotta tell ya
and if you got no insurance, well hell,
they'll find a way to bill ya

they give me focus groups that i can't seem to follow
the beds here are so hard, at least i have a pillow

and i don't know if i'll be coming home
and i don't know if i'll be coming home soon

count the days 'til you arrive
pick me up in your old ride
we could sit there side by side
side by side by side by side

well it's a head check here and then a gut check there
and then a shockwave
and i can wear the same clothes everyday
i never have to shave

they say if i take these
then maybe i won't feel old
i got so good just staring out this lonely window

and i don't know if i'll be coming home
and i don't know if i'll be coming home soon

    General Commentthis song recounts a stay at a rehabilitation center of some sort. the tone of the song is rather depressing, but becomes hopeful for the verse on getting picked up. anyway, its a great mellow summer night sort of song.
