You try to sleep
'Cause there's never enough
You try to sleep
But then you never wake up
Inside the dream
You take a step
You come to see
To see your debt

Try to sleep
Don't look at the camera
Try to sleep

You stretch your wings
You take a breath
You hide your feet
Embrace your head
A tragedy
No, there's never enough
You try to sleep
But then you never wake up

Try to sleep
Don't look at the camera
Try to sleep

But then you never wake up

    It's about the american dream and then never waking up in reality that it is based on debt
    And about the modern life which values publicity over everything "don't look at the camera" like try to act normal
    It is also about spirituality and "waking up" in that sense also
