Question about "Cream"

First of all: I don't know if I should put "NBC" at the topic... I doubt if Cream is (real) blues.... but that's another story.

My question:
I don't understand (maybe because I am Dutch) a thing about the lyrics in the Cream song "White Room".
What is the story behind this song? Was this written during an L.S.D. trip??????
Is there somebody on the L who is a "Cream Professor"?

Thank you!

Lyrics as I found them on the web....:

In a white room with black curtains near the stationsBlackroof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings,Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes.Dawnlight smiles on your leaving, my contentment.I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines.Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.You said no strings could secure you at the stations.Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows.I walked into such a sad time at the station.As I walked out felt my own need just beginning.I'll wait in the queue when the trains come backI'll wait for you where the shadows run from themselvesAt the party she was kindness in the hard crowdConsolation from the old wound now forgottenYellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyesShe's just dressing goodbye windows, tired starlingsI'll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd,Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves.
