Tearing pictures of the wall, you took the fall from truth so everyone could see that you don't live your life for me. You live for you and there's nothing I can do, but try to climb out the trenches I've dug cause I can't see underground. I'm not saying that I understand what it's like to be living in spite, but five years from now it'll all seem so trite. I'm sleeping today so I can wake in your arms tonight

    General Comment...of course there's another version. hence a few of the above comments.

    anyway i think it's about living in spite of the fact that she's turned away from him. the last line may be dreaming? sleeping today so i can wake in your arms tonight, like, wake to a dream... sort of thing.

    maybe the living in spite (upon reflection) is his implication that she feels something for him or something but turns away from it, lives in spite of those feelings and tears him apart. i dunno.
