Line from a track called Peaches and Cream by Beck Hansen (from the Midnite Vultures album). I got high recently and spent a long time (or what seemed like a long time) contemplating this statement.

I got no closer to understanding it's meaning. But I do think it's a good bit of all purpose guru wisdom.

"Henry, man, Sophie just broke up with me - I feel like shit.."

"Keep your lamplights trimmed and burning."

See? No? Neither do I. But I think that's kinda the point.
