Feel
This illusive dream that's
Growing
Flowing into view
Take thise immense
Participation
Is it really you?

Fall back
My secret window
Feel free
To let me lose
My mind
My mind

Twisting
I feel abandoned
Look back
To set me free
To purify
To purify

I makes me want to scream
To fall out of this dream
It makes me want to find the things
I thought you wanted
It makes you want to try
To leave it all behind
The time
that still remains I'll use
to redefine me
Find me...

Now
All that's left with me
This feeling
Am I all alone?
Stretching
I cannot see you
Clearly
Am I losing you?

To speak
I'll try to save you
Feel free to let me find
My innerline
My innerline

Have you simply
Lost the answer
Will you take the hand I give?
To redefine
To redefine

...This illusive cry
I AM
Your secret window
I AM
All that's left with you
I AM
Redefinition

I am losing you
Fading in
You're fading out

I'll redefine my dreams
In the hours that remain
I'll try to understand
To redefine myself

    My InterpretationAs soon as I first readed the lyrics I realized I can totally relate to this song in this period of my life.

    I'll try to explain my interpretation of the song step by step: basically, it talks about this guy that cares a lot about a girl. He gave everything for her, and he feels deceived because everything he did wasn't enough.

    1° Verse:

    "Feel
    This illusive dream that's
    Growing
    Flowing into view
    Take thise immense
    Participation
    Is it really you?"

    In this part of the verse, he says that he always dreamt to be with her but he starts to realize that this dream could be deceiving him.

    "Fall back
    My secret window
    Feel free
    To let me lose
    My mind
    My mind"

    Now he's sure he has deceived himself, he realizes the situation and wants to hide himself in his "little secret corner". He just cannot think about anything but her ("Feel free to let me lose my mind" is a desperate pray)

    "Twisting
    I feel abandoned
    Look back
    To set me free
    To purify
    To purify"

    He feels abandoned and he wants to forget all this story and be free of this pain.

    Chorus:

    "It makes me want to scream
    To fall out of this dream
    It makes me want to find the things
    I thought you wanted
    It makes you want to try
    To leave it all behind
    The time
    that still remains I'll use
    to redefine me
    Find me..."

    He immediately regrets what it thought at the end of the first verse:
    he's desperate, he just wants to leave his dreams and give her the things that he thought she wanted; altough, for some reason (maybe she fears something or she's insecure), she wants to flee. He then says that wants to use the remaining time to change himself and see if it will work.

    2° Verse:

    "Now
    All that's left with me
    This feeling
    Am I all alone?
    Stretching
    I cannot see you
    Clearly
    Am I losing you?"

    The situation aggravates, he feels lonely because he's not even dreaming anymore. It's just reality and he's realizing that he's losing her.

    "To speak
    I'll try to save you
    Feel free to let me find
    My innerline
    My innerline"

    Altough, he doesn't want to surrender, he wants to save what remains of them and to find his very soul and innerline.

    "Have you simply
    Lost the answer
    Will you take the hand I give?
    To redefine
    To redefine"

    Even if he doesn't surrender, it seems that everything he tries to do is not corresponded by her. He doesn't know why because she doesn't want to answer his question.

    "..This illusive cry
    I AM
    Your secret window
    I AM
    All that's left with you
    I AM
    Redefinition

    I am losing you
    Fading in
    You're fading out"

    "I'll redefine my dreams
    In the hours that remain
    I'll try to understand
    To redefine myself"

    He always had doubts about what he did for her: he asked himself if the things he did were right or bad, and now he finally realizes that everything he did was actually right. He just knows she's doing this but he doesn't know why, and he wants help because he's willing to redefine himself just for her. Because of this, he's desperate since it really seems he's losing her. But even if everything he did was right, it might be that it wasn't what she really wanted, and this could be linked to the chorus ("it makes me to find the things I THOUGHT you wanted").
    Eventually, he changes his dreams in order to give her what she actually wants. He will try to understand her reasons and redefine himself once again.

    Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language and I can't manage to explain things well..

    I can relate to this song because I'm literally in the same situation. I'm giving everything for her but there's always something going wrong. I just want to know what.. Just like this guy from the song.
