Too tired to ride this train home, It's just gone on for way too long.
I envy what they all have, but I know if I got it, I'd give it right back.

My dreams remind me of an ocean. They feel so open, like you could float in them.

Too proud to send out an S.O.S. I fear that karma's catching up
I'm looking for a quick escape, to close my eyes and feel the rage.
I see the ones who got a taste of their dreams and I think I want it more than them
But wanting is what children do, and taking is for ruined men.
You gotta earn your way.

I am falling away. I am flowing away.

My dreams remind me of an ocean. They feel so open, like you could float in them.
My dreams remind me of the seasons. They're always changing. I must chase after them.

    Too tired to ride this train home, It's just gone on for way too long.
    I envy what they all have, but I know if I got it, I'd give it right back.

    -She doesn't take the long train ride back to where she came from/home.
    -She's jealous of what others have, but if she had it, she wouldn't want it.

    My dreams remind me of an ocean. They feel so open, like you could float in them.

    -maybe how free and independent dreams are? anything could happen?

    Too proud to send out an S.O.S. I fear that karma's catching up
    I'm looking for a quick escape, to close my eyes and feel the rage.
    I see the ones who got a taste of their dreams and I think I want it more than them
    But wanting is what children do, and taking is for ruined men.
    You gotta earn your way.

    -she's too stubborn to call for help, and maybe that somethings about to happen to her from something shes done?
    -shes wanting to be unconscious, in some way, to feel her anger
    -She sees/hears about other peoples goals/dreams and she thinks she wants it more than the people that have them.
    -She decides to do her own thing since wanting what they want is childish and taking other peoples ideas is wrong.

    I am falling away. I am flowing away.

    -drowning, running away (?)

    My dreams remind me of an ocean. They feel so open, like you could float in them.
    My dreams remind me of the seasons. They're always changing. I must chase after them.

    -Dreams are free and flowing, etc.
    -Dreams always change, especially when you get older, so she has to decide what she wants when she's older rather than not knowing when she's younger so she'll do what she wants that's right for her.

    This is just my interpretation of the song, but I really wonder what it means.
