    People used to say that was a reference to drugs. One of the guys in Chicago said it was never meant to be.

    Just like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was supposedly about LSD, but it was named after a Julian Lennon drawing. Even so, I do think much of the imagery was inspired by
    LSD.

    Lamm says it's simpler than that. "The song is about writing a song. It's not mystical," he says. Take a look at some of the lyrics:

    Waiting for the break of day--He's been up all night and now it's getting close to sunrise.
    Searching for something to say--Trying to think of song lyrics.
    Flashing lights against the sky--Perhaps stars or the traditional flashing neon hotel sign.
    Giving up I close my eyes--He's exhausted and his eyes hurt from being open too long, so he closes them.
    Staring blindly into space--This expression can be seen often on the faces of writers and reporters. Trust me.
    Getting up to splash my face--Something you do when you're trying to stay awake, though a good cup of Starbuck's does wonders for Cecil and me.
    Wanting just to stay awake, wondering how much I can take--How far can he push himself to get the song done?
    Should I try to do some more?--This is the line that makes many think it's a drug song. But it is just as easily construed as a frustrated writer wondering if he should try to do some more lyrics/songwriting.

    As for the curious title, Lamm says, "It's just a reference to the time of day"--as in "waiting for the break of day" at 25 or (2)6 minutes to 4 a.m. (3:35 or 3:34 a.m.)
