    A lot of people are close, but Alex (the writer of the song) has said that this song is simply written about strange dreams that he'd been having.
    Once the band had finished touring from their first album, they moved into a house together to begin writing on their second album. Alex was so used to moving time zones and having an irregular sleeping pattern that he wasn't actually able to comfortably sleep on his own in the same time zone for more than a week. So, apparently, he started keeping dream journals, and one night, he 'smoked a lot of pot' and had the strangest dreams he'd ever experienced, so he wrote a song about it. Hope this helped. :)

    I believe this song is all about self discovery and going within yourself to discover what you true desires are. He is discovering his purpose, so many people walk around with their eyes closed and go through the motions, the narrator and the subject are both on their journeys, possibly at different stages to understand themselves. The subject is further along in his journey and may have made sacrifices, such as companionship (sleeping alone) and the narrator realises that he is headed down the same road. Or alternatively he is saying that the journey within ourselves is a journey that we have to take on our own.
