"Standing Stones" as written by and Alexander Perls Rousmaniere....
I'm driving at night I got nowhere to go
I'm tired and all I wanna do is get stoned
I'm passing those streets I've known from mile to mile
And though I'm not far from home
I never felt so alone
So,
I'm thinking that it's hard for me
Though I'm thinking that you're hard to beat
My heart grows so cold

When you're standing next to me
Why am I feeling that we're bound to be alone
Standing stones

Another way, the bitter shakes
A better way, than those mistakes
Hanging on in quiet desperation

The bitter end, of acetate
Still living here, without a fate
Bound to pass the point of contemplation

So you don't play the games that others play
Do it your way, baby yeah I think it's okay
So you're not coming out to see the stars
But baby why is it so hard
To get within an inch of you heart

If you need a little company
Always told you I was hard to beat
My heart grows so cold

'Cause when you're standing next to me
Are you feeling that we're bound to be alone
Standing stones

    My InterpretationStraightforward lyrics, plus some vague ones.
    Nowhere to be and nothing to do -- isolation, like a prehistoric monolith standing stone (or menhir/lith). The subject is alienated from "baby", who isn't going along with the plan. Occasionally, standing stones are found together, as in a henge; even with "you're standing next to me...feeling we're bound to be alone", stones alone together.

    The subject wants to "get stoned", meaning intoxicated. I'm guessing alcohol. Getting drunk can cause ethylic "acetate" poisoning (a hangover), which is a bitter end, especially after intoxication "past the point of contemplation". "Another way", without getting drunk, can cause an alcoholic to suffer delirium tremens, which are "bitter shakes", but "a better way than those" drug abuse "mistakes". Either way, the subject will "live without a fate" "in quiet desperation", still alone like the standing stone.
