Song Description

An undercurrent of spookiness and tension runs beneath this song about living life to its fullest. Savor even the pain, because simply to feel is divine.

Lyrics

SLEEPWALK

He works, he sleeps
He knows his history
He reads, he dreams
So much ability

He drives Northwest
Up the interstate
The snow falls slow
Hypnotic and opaque

Bright with life, he leaves behind
Endless days and longer nights
His eyes are wide, his ears are numb,
Filled with pulsating engine hum

Don't rush by unseeing
Through the places and the pleasures of the ride
(Take it all in)
Don't skim through the pages
Of the ponderous volume that describes your life
(Don't miss a word)
Some seek distraction,
Just to pass the time, not entertain
We sometimes sleepwalk
Sacrificing joy to numb the pain

I saw the scene
I didn't want to see
Steel, glass, debris
Stranger, rest in peace

How could he know when he awoke
That this was the day his book would close?
Have you thrived or just survived
If this were the day you said goodbye?

Don't rush by unseeing
Through the places and the pleasures of the ride
(Take it all in)
Don't skim through the pages
Of the ponderous volume that describes your life
(Don't miss a word)
Some seek distraction,
Just to pass the time, not entertain
We sometimes sleepwalk
Sacrificing joy to numb the pain

We sometimes sleepwalk
