Stoned Immaculate Lyrics
No eternal reward will forgive us now
For wasting the dawn.
Back in those days everything was simpler and more confused
One summer night, going to the pier
I ran into two young girls
The blonde one was called...

Its about the journey from childhood to youth, and then about how life is.
'For wasting the dawn'
Dawn here refers to the time between adolescence and youth, a connection between night and day.
'No eternal reward...'
No reward waits for us, when we get older, to supplement us. Out of the warm shelter of our parents, we emerge, into the raw, cruel world.
'Back in those days...confused'
We know that about the bridge which connects childhood and youth, don't we?
'One summer night, going to the pier,'
'Pier' is the bridge connecting the childhood from youth.
'I ran into two young girls.
The blonde was called Freedom,
The dark one, Enterprise.'
Now, youth offers us Freedom. 'Ran into' is important, because, it expresses really well how suddenly the freedom comes.
'Enterprise' can mean a lot of things. It can be a relationship, or a pursuit of a dream.
And now, the two girls, the poetic expression of youth tell a story. A story about life. Now this poetically means that the writer is going through his life, a story.
''Now listen to this,
I'll tell you about Texas Radio and the Big Beat.
Soft driven slow and mad,
Like some new language.''
Life. A new language. In the sixties, the radio around Texas used to be from Mexico. You can't understand the lyrics, but the language. It might seem like a blabber, but poetically, its a great paragraph.
"Reaching your head
With the cold, sudden fury
Of a divine messenger."
Life does that. Some things can't be interpreted, but felt.
"Let me tell you about heartache
And the loss of god."
The 'g' of 'god' is not in caps. 'Loss of God' is the loss of faith in God.
"Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars"
Poetical expression. Hard to define.
Life becomes hopeless at times. 'no stars' stars are expression for, again, hope.
"Out here we is stoned
Out of all the fuss of life, 'we'(the past and present of the poet) 'is'(used to describe 'we' is one person) is stoned clean.
Stoned Immaculate(immaculate means clean, pure).

I think it's about pushing the spiritual mind through Drugs or meditation to be... Stoned Immaculate

Great song by JIM MORRISON that I believe are about no rewards in HEAVEN for those who destroyed and damaged the life out of the spirit and souls of the meek, poor, hungry and unarmed that were pitted against one another in the past and now to be divided by the establishment. Then they pushed them of their land away from God, and the gods they believed came from the stars to wonder in heartache and hopelessness within the deep forest edges. Where there their no more stars to look up to anymore. ''Out here we is Stoned Immaculate''. Anotherwords, eventually they became the living stones, spotless and free from sin, holy purified to be clean for us to see their soul and spirit that harden in them, so that nobody else can get blood out of them anymore, in the name of the Divine Messenger that was used by the new language with a fury on the people of the land that got stoned.
