Holt Boulevard
Between Gary and White
Hooked up with some friends at the Travelodge
Set ourselves up for the night

Carpenter ants in the dresser
Flies in the screen
It will be too late by the time we learn
What these cryptic symbols mean

And I dreamt of a house
Haunted by all you tweakers with your hands out
And the headstones climbed up the hills
And the headstones climbed up the hills

Send somebody out for soda
Comb through the carpet for clues
Reflective tape on our sweatpants
Big holes in our shoes
Every couple minutes someone says he can't stand it any more
Laugh lines on our faces
Scale maps of the ocean floor

And I dreamt of a camera
Pointing out from inside the televsion
And the aperture yawning and blinking
And the headstones climbed up the hills

If anybody comes to see me
Tell 'em they just missed me by a minute
If anybody comes in to our room while we're asleep
I hope they incinerate everybody in it

And I dreamt of a factory
Where they manufactured what I needed
Using shiny new machines
And the headstones climbed up the hills

    General CommentI think that this song could also be about trying to get sober off of the meth.
    "Every couple minutes someone says he can't stand it any more"
    Which could possibly be about the withdrawals that they're getting from the meth.

    And when he says "Headstones climb up the hills" maybe he's saying that everyone gave up and then maybe overdosed and now they're all dying and being buried under the hills.
    The headstones "climbing" could possibly mean that they're covering all the hills.
    That alot of people are dying.
