"Song for a Sleepwalker" as written by and Stephanie Ashworth Clint Hyndman....
No more will I play along
And no more will tell myself how it's gonna be from now on
'Cause I've been stalling in between
And I've been dragging my feet
Making bets that this isn't happening

And I sleepwalk around two feet off the ground
While the real world is trying to reach me
And when the rain comes down I see it all now

Standing on the great divide
Of some collission between ordinary and imaginary life
And this could be your lucky day
'cause if tomorrow ever comes
You'll be looking, looking the other way

And you sleepwalk around two feet off the ground
While the real world is trying to reach you
With stories that you already knew

It pulls you and pushes you

And you sleepwalk around two feet off the ground
While the real world is trying to reach you
When the rain comes down you'll find yourself now
Nowhere

    General Commentto me this song is about just existing and not living. You walk around not being aware of what is happening around you.
    The lines between reality and imagination are blurred.

    General CommentCool song. Similar to how I feel sometimes.. just there and doing whatever it is I have to, but not living as such.

    General CommentThe existing and not living point is definitely there, and I think Paul really emphasizes his last point, which is that when the time comes you'll realise what you've become and where you are: nowhere.
