(What's he saying?)
Yeah...just...a little...closer...
(What's he doing?)
It was, I know, by the corner... yeah
Sitting in the darkness... yeah
I didn't see it, but I know
It tries to hide sometimes,
but it can't fool me... no
Because I have this thing, it's the way I see
The way I see when my eyes are closed
A kind-of perception of misconception
It's really quite a, shall we say a...
A really beautiful thing!
There're just certain things that I've come to find
in my communications have never existed
Certain understandings that I've come to realize... yeah
But I don't believe it... no
Not for a second!
It wasn't really truthful in the ways that a, that they a, that they a, they a...
They're here right now... yeah

I wasn't meant to feel this...
I wasn't meant to feel this...
I wasn't meant to feel this way

Counting on nothing, the numbers get higher
Blinded by reason, you're asleep at the wheel
Confused understanding, with a slip for the hold
Squeeze past the pressure, you're asleep at the wheel

A magical moment
Is it too much of a good thing
Recycled in memory was
It too much of a good thing
Why can't you remember
Is it too much of a good thing
Preserved in its danger
You're asleep at the wheel
Blank stare and whisper, but who are you judging
I thought you'd be different
You're asleep at the wheel

A special assignment
Is it too much of a good thing
Unlocked under pressure
Was it too much of a good thing
Confined unforgiveness
A new kind of danger, you're asleep at the wheel

Hope in revision, slight miscalculation
It all goes in stages, you're asleep at the wheel

A blank stare and whisper
I thought you were different
But who are you judging
I thought you were different
You're asleep at the wheel

    Lyric CorrectionI also noticed that a chunk of the lyrics/monologue at the beginning of the song are missing (the entire "I Wasn't Meant to Feel This" half of the song)....

    General CommentI can't believe that no one has posted any thoughts on this song's lyrics. Help me out here, people. I've changed my mind about what this song is about at least five times since junior high school.
