robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
lauren talks to god still but now she sees him when she's high
it flashes like white light and visions of clouds that curl like fists
or reach out and light cloud fingers
and the glow shining through them
makes me feel like silver sunrise
lauren's got a grand in medical bills and robbie's got the gi bill
and a dealer called moses who they call mo
and mo sells out the ? bar down by the basement near ?
where palm trees and eucalyptus grow amongst the sailor bars and car stereo shops

robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
robbie and lauren high in bed she talks about moving to chicago
he just stares at the wall which looks like white carpet
and the carpet which looks like brown wall
stuck ? and starch guarded

robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
lauren's got a grand in medical bills and robbie's got the gi bill
and a dealer named moses who they call mo
and mo sells out the ? bar down by the basement near ?
where the palm trees and eucalyptus grow amongst the sailor bars and car stereo shops
lauren says "rob, whatcha thinking about?"
but robbie just shakes his head and watches the carpet ? and the wall blur
and in his head there are hurricanes
and in his head there are neon blue lines like telegraph wire
and a crosshatch of chain link fences in ?
and he feels the pitch of the ship
at midnight and storms off bahrain

robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
robbie and lauren high in bed she talks about moving to chicago
he just stares at the wall which looks like white carpet
and the carpet which looks like brown wall
stuck ? and starch guarded
lauren says "rob, what are you thinking about?"
but robbie just shakes his head and watches the carpet ? and the wall blur
and in his head there are hurricanes
and in his head there are neon blue lines like telegraph wire
and a crosshatch of chain link fences in ?
and he feels the pitch of the ship
at midnight and storms of bahrain
and she talks about moving to chicago

robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
lauren talks to god still but now she sees him when she's high it flashes like white light
and visions of clouds
that curl like fists
or reach out and light cloud fingers and the glow shining through them looks like silver sunrise

robbie and lauren stay stoned for two months at her mom's place in san diego
lauren says "robbie, what are you thinking about?"
and robbie just shakes his head and watches the carpet ? and the wall blur
and in his head there are hurricanes
and in his head there are neon blue lines like telegraph wires
and a crosshatch of chain link fences in ?
and he feels the pitch of the ship
at midnight and storms of bahrain
and the fear comes down
like great boulders falling and rocks from cliffs to crush out hope
and cover up the places where life is good and where good life has a chance

    General Commentadam kind of mumbles a lot, doesn't he? there's lots i couldn't make out here, between that and the creepy backmasked shit. is robbie here the same as rob in "the old lover"? i guess so. then again, it's a common name...
