and it is only in my dreams
that I permit myself to be insane
and I scream for no apparent reason

and my urge to crumble
the lives of others elevates as my...
my veins, they become a map

and words no longer make sense
for it is only actions that affect
the extent of temporary disease

in my dreams my veins become a map that guide me through insanity...

trapped inside my own body, but my actions reflect the work of a madman
my hands shake uncontrollaby, palms soaked in sweat
come as result of my nightmares, and my dreams

(in my dreams...)
is it ok to kill?
it's only in my dreams
my urge to crumble
drives me insane

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone who is trapped inside themself..its like he is trying to fight off some kind of internal demon, but he puts on a mask of normality...

    General CommentFor me it's about a guy who is losing himself... he thinks (or others think) that he's going to drive insane.
    And only his dreams are a way for him to get out of that madness. If you look at the end, you see that his dreams are his escape, because there he can let out all those urges and just let 'his demon' go.

    This song is just genius! And the end is really driving me insane... I like it so much... good for me that I also dream al lot =D

    General Commenti love this song
    i think it is about him getting so frustrated with everything, that he is about to go insane but he wont let him self, but he just wants to come out.
    or
    he feels guilty about soemthing, he knows something, and he has to keep it inside. and he is about to go insane with the knowing the truth.

    My Opinioni think the song is about someone who thinks that life is shit! that in his dreams he can actually be himself and he doesnt have to hide anything

    General CommentI think this may be based off of the book "I Heard That Song Before" by Mary Higgins Clark. Maybe, maybe not. It reminds me of it though. It is about a person who thinks he might have killed 3 people while sleepwalking..He feels innocent because in his conscious mind he wouldn't harm a single person, but he has had disturbing dreams, and wonders if they are true basically.
