that's a great essay! apparently they both contributed to the lyrics. interesting to me is the idea that gerrit didn't mean junkie in the sense that i took it. according to him, "Never mind that the line and the word had nothing to do with junk or junkies, much less Garcia..." and i loved garcia's response regarding the subject..."i don't give a fuck, sing what you want." regardless of what the original meaning or intention of the lyrics were, i still can't help but thing that it eventualy had some implication. after all, songs change and evolve over time and can end up meaning different things. maybe that's just me projecting though, i dunno!
