"Lucid Dreams (Album version)" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Sweep slides on my stereo
Short wave 'round my rodeo
Became from that of Savalon
But I'm flying to Istanbul

Oh so why don't you meet me, there?

There is no nation of you
There is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in Lucid Dreams
Lucid Dreams I'm living in Lucid Dreams
I'm living on short based dreams tonight

I'll dial Alexandria
If you dial into Ithaca
South fisher, German bite
I skate on the world tonight

Oh so why don't you come along?
There is no nation of you
There is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in Lucid Dreams
Lucid Dreams
I'm living in Lucid Dreams
I'm living on short based dreams tonight

I'm gonna give my aimless love
My angry heart
My desire
I woke with wings from Lucid Dreams
I knew the reason I felt hollow
Was it I may never know
If there is some great truth or not

There is no nation of you
There is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in Lucid Dreams
Lucid Dreams
I'm living in Lucid Dreams

I'm living in a short wave stream tonight
Lucid dreams
I'm living on lucid dreams
Now there is just plain myster

    General CommentThese are the lyrics from the book inside the CD case:

    It's "Beat came from Addis Abylon", not "Became from that of Savalan", and "Another Narnia where we can live it", not "Another area we can live in".

    A lucid dream is when you realize you're dreaming and you control what happens in it. The speaker is basically fed up with his seemingly meaningless life, "aimless love", and "angry heart", and therefore would rather live in a world where he can live out his dreams, because through them he can create any world he wants, be it the Eastern charm of Istanbul or the magic of Narnia.

    My OpinionAt first I hated the album version, but it really grew on me. Love love love the new instrumental ending. Reminds me of Fight Club's music almost.

    General CommentThe line "Beat [Beep?] came from [?] Avalon" is "became that of from Savalan". Its likely "Savalan" and not "Savalon" because - fitting with the whole "globetrotting" theme of the song, Savalan is a real place (its a village in Azerbaijan). Either that its referring Sabalan, the volcano in Iran which is also commonly called "Savalan".

    General Commentthis song is sick, the synth ending is outstanding...i think amuiscalment sums up the content of the song quite nicely.

    My InterpretationLucid dreaming is about being aware that you are dreaming, and being able to control your actions in your dreams... I think the synth ending might be a way of showing how anything is possible in a lucid dream.... and how objects can be changed into anything. The possibilities are endless. Hence why it is unconventional for the song to change from a rocky song into an electronic one. I don't know if FF intended this, but it's how I interpret the song
