Lyrics

They offer no explanation
In their granite lies your horizon
And you learn how to offer your throat
Just to keep your seat on the boat
Dreams are like regrets
That's where your heart is settled

End over end and spinning in the deep
Never fall asleep, never fall asleep

They offer nothing
No good or bad wishes
Either you are useful or you're used like dishes
Dreams are like regrets
They're measured up as debts

And if you have treasure that you wanna keep
Never fall asleep
Never fall asleep

You let no one love you and now you're a creep
Never fall asleep
Never fall asleep
