"No One Dreams Anyways" as written by and Matthew Devine....
You can't feed him steel
And no one likes his ideas
And they all look fucked
Well, those eyelids help

What's there to wake up to?
What's there to wake up to?
When no one dreams anyway
No one thinks anyway
And they live and they die in bed
No one thinks and they drive buses
No one dreams and they die in in in in bed

And no one dreams anyway
And no one thinks anyway
And no one dreams anyway

No, they all start dying here...

Anyway...

    General Commenti think it's about a guy who's got some pretty drastic ideas. something revolutionary, but the rest of the world doesn't want to agree with what he has to say. eventually this guy gives up, and the world is lost because they're beyond ignorant and anal about anything new. it reminds me of old philosophers. back to when everyone wanted to believe the earth was flat, when one man tried to go against that using a new theory, everyone got on his case for it.

    same idea. almost.

    General Commentto me it is about having all these feelings and thoughts flying around in his head, but nobody will stick around long enough to hear them. and in the end he wonders if it's really worth it to live without someone to share his life with.

    General CommentI think it's just about giving up on everything. "No one dreams anyway, so why should I?"

    But this is one of Kill Hannah's best songs.

    General Commentto me this song has a maybe weird meaning(?). anyways, it could symbolize the state this world is in. no one thinks, everything is a turmoil...war and death everywhere. it is such a hopeless situation, that no one has got any dreams any more..we have given up all our hopes for a better world. "no one dreams anyway" and "what's there to wake up to" is evidence that the person in question is giving up..sort of letting go. "those eyelids help" - one cannot see too much destruction. it is killing us

    General Commenti feel so dumb
    it just now hit me what this song is about
    i agree with killersthatglisten
    he wants to make a difference and change the world and he has this potential and all this stuff in his head, but all the everyday people just want to live normally and routinely
    before i just thought 'giving up hope' cause 'no one dreams anyway' and they kinda clicked but now..
    it seems to mean a lot more to me
