Has Jim ever talked about the origin/story behind this song?

At Red Rocks in 2019 he stopped mid-song and spoke about the lyric "don't let your silly dreams fall in between the crack of the bed and the wall" and where it came from. Check out the song from that show. It's a pretty cool moment. It was a story, from what I remember, about his favorite toy/stuffed animal falling between his bed and the wall.

I worked for a family business in Chapel Hill with ties to Bermuda back in the 90's. I remember they often described all the roads on the island as short, because... island.

So, I always took the meaning of "your ass, it draws me in like a Bermuda highway" as something close, short, immediate.

Close enough!
