If we can no longer tell dream from reality, how can we break the cycle?

lyrics

Land of Sleep

A mad man dreams of turning machines in pain
He pretends to sleep while a shadow calls his name

The stolen sun soon will soon become
Another torn and broken memory

Turn back the clocks
To reveal what we've lost
In this city's smoky veil

Or face the violent truth of this machine

He cannot fight, the endless night's to blame
And faces change till all become the same
The sleepwalkers rule the streets
The same day on repeat, so

Turn back the clocks
To reveal what we've lost
In this city's smoky veil.

To fight the silent rule of this machine

Postcards of trees reflecting the seas
A place beyond the grey
Is calling his name

To throw ourselves into the flames
To kill the fuel
To break the cogs that turn the machine
