"Sleepwalking" as written by and Bradford Cox....
I'm not mad about anything
You forced on me a hopeless dream
I'd been looking for one true thing
Too numb to see I'd been sleepwalking

Too horrified to see

When a decade doesn't get you down
You're flying now but you'll come back down
And with both your feet on the ground
You'll look around, yeah, you'll look around

Too horrified to see

I'd been looking for some harmonies
Some words to sing that could really bring
The lonely-hearted some company
All the people that were just like me, yeah
When a decade is spent searching
For something time will never bring
Something starts to shut down inside
My body and my tired mind

Too horrified to see

Can't you see
Your heart is hard now
Your heart is hard now
Can't you see
We've grown apart now
We've grown apart now

    General CommentI find this song extremely relevant to a subordinate musician in a successful band, a person who is spending a lot of their time and effort on another person's dream. Touring will kill a person. But in a way life is condensed in those moments.

    Deerhunter's been around almost a decade so the search for something time will never bring might be the dream of what success should be, not what fame and notoriety bring; something I'm sure Mr. Cox knows very much about as an outspoken individual.

    This song is very much a snapshot of a memory in my opinion. This is all based on my recent experiences as are all interpretations without the artist divulging the true sentiments.
