Closed off, we wake from the dusk... (the dusk)
only to step out into open air, just to see the same clouds opening. (Yahh)
Into open air... only to step out...

If this is a place people dream of, (people dream of)
insomnia is the only cure - the only antidote.
You’ve been deceived into thinking this is the perfect life.
It’s an illusion to your perception. You’ve been deceived.

I wish time was still ancient so I could bridge the gap (bridge the gap)
between here, between there, between you and I. (between you and I)
Frustration is setting in. I am seeing red. (I’m seeing red)
This blessing is a curse. I am seeing red. (I am seeing red)

Counting all the things that I took for granted. Counting down the days.
Watching the clock as it just stands still... to just sail away, sail away, sail away.
Waiting for the morning that takes me home, that takes me home, to take me home.

This bittersweet dream that I dreamt. Oh Pangaea.

All of this is worth every penny - every cent.
I would give back everything just to be back... back home.

This is a bittersweet dream I’ve dreamt. Oh Pangaea, where have you gone?
I’m at all four corners of this world. Oh Pangaea, what have you done?
This is a bittersweet dream I’ve dreamt. Oh Pangaea, where have you gone?
I’m at all four corners of this world. Pangaea, what have you done?

    General CommentI think this song is about how someone struggles with the benefits and negativities to being a christian, and how they just want to go back to heaven because that is their true home, and how they look for their home in every little corner but it's nowhere to be found.

    My InterpretationMost of the lyrics are a vage blurry mess, I don't really understand.
    I know Pangea was the ancient super-continent, and this is used here as a metaphore for a united place.

    "I would give back everything just to be back... back home. This is a bittersweet dream I’ve dreamt. Oh Pangaea, where have you gone?"

    Here it seems to me he's using Pangea as a metaphore for a united, stable, and safe home, that maybe fell apart. Like the continental drift split Pangea into the continents we now know.

    Fascinating lyrics, difficult though.

    General Commentdreaming of a paradise, only to wake up and find the world as we know it?
    We're all smart so we know Pangaea was a super-continent created as a result of continental drift. But, this is when dinosaurs roamed and I thought religious people didn't believe in things like this??? Good to see them branch out.

    General CommentFor me, it seems like he is saying that he wants to go back to day one. Where there was no sin in the world, no pain, no hurt, noi death. Pangea is his way of saying go back to the beginning.

    General CommentThere's also a good chance this could mean he dreamt of a world which was united.

    My InterpretationIt seems like this song could be about losing yourself to the world. Just being overcome by it and falling apart and wanting your old life back.
