Now my suspicion's on the rise
I have known, I have known your kind
Please don't talk, don't make me think
Order up another drink
Let me let imagination drive

Can't you see
I need nothing too deep
Imagination come alive
Tonight, I'll dream tonight

Listen to the devils in my ear
Tell me what, what I want to hear
You're so funny, you're so fine
You're so perfect, you're so mine
That I never had an opportunity
To hide
No, I've never had a chance

Can't you see
I need nothing too deep
Imagination come alive
Tonight, I'll dream tonight

Look into my eyes
They hypnotize
The lights, the drinks
Let the music carry you away
My eyes are blurred
My sights are limited
Am I sensing a familiar twinge?

Please don't speak
Make me think
It's all too deep
Come alive, suspicion
Step down, I'll dream tonight
Step down, I'll dream
You're so naked baby
Carry me away
Dream, dream

    General CommentNo actual sex happens and no actual falling in love happens. All the dazzling, seductive hallmarks of sex or love the narrator refers to are merely a performance simulating what happens before the real thing, the times when sex or love might have actually happened under the same conditions having long passed. Much easier, and safer, to just "Dream, dream" about them instead. Suspicion confirmed.

    General CommentIt seems like a song about a one night stand, but it makes it sound sorta nice. Like he's sorta fallen for this g.u. individual, but wants to give it one night to see how it goes. Too confusing? OK, so I'm not really sure

    General CommentThe mechanics of paranoia - don't let yourself think, just allow yourself to slip into the same old neurotic routines.

    That bitter self-deluding feeling you get when you feed off your stereotyped ideas of types and intuition.

    Short skirt = sexually promiscuious; red lips = sexually promiscuious; black bra = sexually promiscuious etc. etc. until you're so wrapped up in it and hypnotised by your own delusions you KNOW you're right.

    General CommentIt seems to me to be about the paranoia and anxiety you get from some situations which you might feel are almost too perfect.

    Fantastic song

    General CommentReason is an obstacle to truth (or can be, anyway).

    This song is about letting go ...

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a person who engages in a lot of one-night stands. They are using them as a distraction from some sort of pain (possibly a romantic pain, but the lyrics aren't completely clear).

    Essentially, the protagonist gets drunk ("Order up another drink"... "My eyes are blurred...My sights are limited") and picks up random sexual partners, but is clearly not interested in knowing them in any "deep" way.

    The protagonist uses their imagination to "fill in the blanks" about the person they have picked up. They know they are deluding themselves on some level, but go ahead with it anyway.
