Oh was there someone you were thinking of?
Someone more complete
Was there someone you were thinking of?

Yeah

But if you're fighting against the wind
You know that we can't wake up

(We can't wake up)

We...
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
It's turning and turning inside my head
So we will sleep alone

(We can't wake up)

We can't wake up
Inside this machine
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
Just to wake up
We try endlessly
Just to wake up
We can't wake up

But if you're fighting against the wind
You know that (we can't wake up)

We...
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
It's turning and turning inside my head
So we will sleep alone

So in the morning when we lay here dark and still
We wait for sunrise
Familiar voices tell us tales of what's to come
As they pass on by

Cause We...
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
It's turning and turning inside my head
So we will sleep alone

We...
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
It's turning and turning inside my head
So we will sleep alone

Yeah We...
We can't wake up
We can't wake up
It's turning and turning inside my head
So we will sleep alone

Yeah we will sleep alone

    General CommentI love this song =]
    I don't really know what it means,,, but i'd like to think it has something to do with the fact that sleeping is a good escape

    More likely, it could be saying that everyone is kind of blind to the truth, that there is more to life and we all want a sense of completeness, but we can't wake up to it or get ourselves together enough to get up and figure out what it is.

    The line 'But if you're fighting against the wind' says to me that by trying to get up and find something real you're facing a whole heap of opposition, trying to force you back into apathy.

    the second verse...
    'So in the morning when we lay here dark and still
    We wait for sunrise
    Familiar voices tell us tales of what's to come
    As they pass on by'
    ...i think represents that the 'voices' telling us to find something real are not powerful or obvious, but more like whispers, as they come in the dark, still morning. So basically the opposition trying to keep us from finding anything real or meaningful in life are way stronger than the need or desire to find it.

    i dunno if that makes sense or is on the right track at all, but thats how i look at it.
