have you gotten any cigarettes
and have you got anything for me
I no longer know just what I'm saying
is this how it's supposed to be.

sometimes I think the pain blows my mind
pain blows my mind.

is it june or late september
is it 1993
could you help me to remember
is this how I'm supposed to be

sometimes I think the pain blows my mind
pain blows my mind.

did you ever get those cigarettes
and did you get anything for me
will you help me to remember
when I fall into the sea.

sometimes I think the pain blows my mind
pain blows my mind.

    My InterpretationIf you've been seriously ill or have been close to someone who has, this song captures the experience. You can easily picture a bedridden person asking "have you gotten any cigarettes, and have you got anything for me" to a visitor. Long-term suffering does weird things to people's thinking. There's the incredible boredom, the skewed perception, and waves of brutal pain.

    Sad song.
