"Sleepwalking" as written by and Samir Rami Jrade James Bailey....
Destiny turned her face
Nightmares and violent shapes
State of dreaming
Has left me numb

Blue eyes and wandering lips
True lies with fingertips
Hidden tales of forbidden
Love

You've left me miserable
Miserable
Miserable
Mis-er-a-ble

Love

You've left me miserable
Miserable
Miserable
Mis-er-a-ble

Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking

Visions of better times
Kingdoms and lilac wine
Why did God fail
To improve us

Teardrops of acid rain
Burning down through my veins
Can't I just sleep for now

Now
Despite my fears
I dance for you
And did what others knew

I
Would care
Would wait
And live again
More desperate
Desperate
Yeah

Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking

Yeah

Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
(Now despite my fears I dance for you)
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
(Oh would care would wait and live again)
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking
Maybe we're just sleepwalking

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about how cruel the world is becoming. I think the singer is hoping that it's all just one big dream. "Maybe we're just sleepwalking". This game was featured in Grand Theft Auto V, in which the theme (SPOILERS) is to not betray the ones you care about for your own personal gain. This relates to how selfish and awful people could be.

    My InterpretationIm in love with the song and if it was specifically made for this game it confirms my interpretation of it is it's about the world and how its changing for the worse. Listen the tV shows and the radio talk shows they're speaking sarcastically and making fun of world today .. its heartbreaking I.feel the same way and this song beautiful touches me and the singer is Amazing..my god he nailed it I want more

    My Interpretation"Destiny turned her face" = When time passed, you saw an other side of "her"
    Nightmares and violent shapes = this can be what side her face turned 9
    State of dreaming Has left me numb = you are seeing everything in "positive"way, while you dont see reality, you are blinded by something

    Blue eyes and wandering lips= Something that is beautiful to you
    True lies with fingertips = but the true lies in your brain (mind)
    Hidden tales of forbidden Love = Nobody knows about it, that it exist in your life

    You've left me miserable
    Miserable
    Miserable
    Mis-er-a-ble = "love" left you sick, you dont know how to act , etc

    Visions of better times = you hope on better times with your problem
    Kingdoms and lilac wine = not sure about this one
    Why did God fail
    To improve us = why do we have to suffer, why didn't got make us that we dont have to

    Teardrops of acid rain = your tears feel like acid rain
    Burning down through my veins = it burns , you are very upset about it
    Can't I just sleep for now = so upset you cant sleep because of that problem

    Now = now
    Despite my fears = while i had fear , and i tryed it
    I dance for you = i always was there for you (this you refers to "her" )
    And did what others knew= you always did what other people expected you to do

    I
    Would care
    Would wait
    And live again
    More desperate
    Desperate
    Yeah
    = if i had could wait for a 2nd chance, i would do it. Live it again , and dont think about everthing you do

    Maybe we're just sleepwalking
    Maybe we're just sleepwalking = We are guided by emotions, we need to see the real world.

    To be clear
    Love is the problem , you can replace love for everyproblem ,and we are guided by emotions and not by our mind.

    General CommentI can't make much sense out of the lyrics myself, however, I do know that this song was recorded specially for Grand Theft Auto V. In fact, the song plays at the end of the game, *spoiler alert* if you decide to kill Michael. *spoiler end* Might that have anything to do with the meaning? Nine Is God by Wavves was also recorded specially for GTA V, and it's meaning seems to be influenced by it's usage at the end of the game *spoiler alert* if you decide to kill Trevor. *spoiler end* Odds are that Sleepwalking's meaning is similarly tied to it's character, however I've made no leeway by attempting to draw comparisons between this song and Michael's saga. Anyone else have any ideas?
