Dulling from within to find a reason for it all
Lost for years
In the storm
Waiting for the rain to stop me from washing me away
I held on tight
Awaiting night

And I lay me down to sleep
And find a world where I was free

Imagine a place
Where dreams lead the way
And all of your colors fade the grey
Imagine the dream
Now close both your eyes
Fall into the violet skies

Deep inside your eyes it shows
You've been lost for too long
Out of touch
On the edge
I promise you will find a way
I found a pathway home
I'll carry you
You're not alone

So now I lay us down to sleep
I found a world where we are free

Imagine a place
Where dreams lead the way
And all of your colors fade the grey
Imagine the dream

    My InterpretationI think of this as having deeper meaning than the other person mentioned. I think that it somewhat political... or I guess more worldly.
    This song is about a perfect world. Dreams lead the way. Colors fade the gray. Sadly, that is not the world we live in. It is currently just a dream in the minds of SOME (which is why she states that SHE has found it and is encouraging others to do so). I also wish we could live in a world with violet skies and no hate. It is similar to their song great divide... It is just not as upfront about it.

    Song MeaningI see it as someone is going through hard times that leave them more then less uncaring and unfeeling. (entire first verse) Bound by their situation that is holding them down, they use their dreams to escape the grey of their reality...(lay me down to sleep, and find a world where I am free) In their eyes they seem distant from escaping the world so much. (Deep...edge) Words of encouragement for those that are on the edge (I promise...not alone)

    It could be political...this is just the way I see it...always had a huge distaste for politics...

    General CommentI think this song is not as over-arching as some think it is. The references to "You and me we're gonna be all right, we're gonna shake the ground, we're gonna touch the sky..." seems far more personal to me. Almost like it's encouraging us to let our dreams lead our own way and not let the World tell us we can't or shouldn't or won't.
