(New surroundings)

My dreams will never
Come true
And if they ever ever do
There's never you
I want to implode
I want it to end
And all those old feelings
Are all coming back again

(New surroundings)

My dreams
Are haunting my soul
And when I'm driving
Down the road
I'm not in control
I want to let go
I want to shake hands
With the person that's
Responsible for this
Master plan

I know I will
I know I can

(New surroundings)
(This is not in your mind)

My dreams
Will never come true
And if they ever ever do
It's never you
My dreams
Will never come true
And if they ever ever do
It's never you
My dreams
Will never come true
And if they ever ever do
It's never you

    General CommentNo meanings yet? I'll try to take a dive... I think its about how your dreams can be frustrating because you feel as if you don't have control over them sometimes. But thinks like lucid dreaming can help discover them a little more. When the girl sings "new surroundings" I think its as if to say that by just being curious of who is in charge and part of the "master plan" is opening up yourself to new surroundings. I don't know about you guys but I feel like Phantogram has spiritual meanings behind a lot of their songs as well.

    My InterpretationThere's something about the words to this song that resonate to my core. I suffer from anxiety and suicidal tendencies. Through all these years there are certain subjects that can instantly bring panic, and it's not typically things you can talk about. I feel like this song is about dreaming and wanting someone you can't have almost no matter what, and even fulfilling your own goals you still can't have it.

    "My dreams are haunting my soul". You feel like a shell, because your dreams and nightmares happen, but stay with you all day and cloud your every thought. The second verse referring to wanting to kill yourself to end your suffering and heartache. "I want to let go, I want to shake hands with the person that's responsible for this master plan" to go meet your maker.
