We're holding on, to fantasies
Of places that, we've never been before
Don't fade away

I stay awake, every night
Cause all these dreams, tearing me apart
Please fade away

I see the fire in your eyes
I'm mesmerized
I can't break your spell

Reminder of, reality
The facelessness, the things we've become
Please fade away

The lessons learned, traditions kept
Denial of, the seamless interest
Don't fade away

I see the fire in your eyes
I'm mesmerized
I can't break your spell

Shut down your system

    My InterpretationThis is about a man trying to move past a broken relationship however he continually flips his view. Maybe we should be (dont fade away) / maybe it's best we're not (please fade away) The first verse he speaks of memories both real and imagined and not wanting to lose them. Second verse he is tortured by his feelings for another and wishes them to stop.
    the chorus: every time he sees her it resets his heart and he's back to square one.
    3rd verse we're back to normal perspective how ugly the relationship was. 4th verse thoughts ran away again and he longs once more.
    He cant break her spell (rather the cycle of his feelings)
    "shut down your system" -He realizes he cannot move on until his feelings are resolved.
