Blurring lines between memory and dream
Wiping the sleep from my eyes
You know that I confuse the two
It happens all the time
What's real and what's in your mind

Dreaming my life away
Everyday's an endless night
You're dreaming your life away
And shiver as all of your days

Go on and on and on and on and on

C'mon, I'm awake
Just tired in the eyes
A daydream to last all of your life

It seems the more I try
To stop turning off my mind
The more I just feel like I died

Fade into another
On and on the feeling's gone
Movin' backwards
And I am stepping on shells
Turn in the middle
I'm wide awake, the dream remains
I dreamed in my eyes but nothing's changed

We're the ones that keep you warm at night

    i blink* my eyes, but nothing's changed

    this song is mostly about how someone is too busy dreaming instead of living, and it's finally starting to bother them, but it's a hard adjustment to make.

    "we're the ones that keep you warm at night" is referring to the dreams that this person is having.
