    This song is so beautifully and vividly written, it's my favorite on this album. It captures that euphoric feeling you get when you wake up from a very surreal and significant dream. The singer however has a series of these dreams and each verse seems to capture each one of these dreams. The singer is pertubed and is dwelling deep on something in his life to the point that it manifests itself through his dreams which he tells us about.
    This song is so eloquent and paints great pictures of 'feelings' by using many contradicting themes that brings you into a dreamworld, which is similar to that of Alice's.
    'Into the pastures of our minds
    Goes my nearly beloved. ' Nearly beloved is a play on words, as opposed to dearly beloved. 'Nearly Beloved', because even in the singers dream, he can't live out his desire to be with the one whom he is in love with, because all he knows is pain, he doesn't know how he would feel if he could be with his beloved. 'parallel white lines', there paths never intersect in his dream regardless of how he feels, and as they walk these lines I'm assuming they erase the setting of his beautiful pasture.
