Delusional I believe I can cure it all for you, dear Coax or trick or drive or Drag the demons from you Make it right for you sleeping beauty Truly thought I can magically heal you
You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening Failing miserably to rescue
Drunk on ego Truly thought I could make it right If I kissed you one more time to Help you face the nightmare But you're far too poisoned for me Such a fool to think that I can wake you from your slumber That I could actually heal you
Sleeping beauty Poisoned and hopeless You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening Failing miserably to find a way to comfort you
Far beyond a visible sign of your awakening Hiding from some poisoned memory
Poisoned and hopeless Sleeping beauty

Adam from Atttleboro, MaTaking it from the relationship level, you cannot help people with problems that are too deep for instance a troubled teen that cuts themselves as a release from there pained life or a drug addicted person. I was in a similar relationship this song has a deep meaning to me I thought I could help them in some when or just being with me or having me around could help but it didn't matter having me around was nothing and couldn't stop the outcome. People can only be helped if they chose to help themselves it's a as easy as that
Regina from Hazel Park, Mimy ex dedicated this song to me when I got lost in a dark world of drugs quite a few years back. he felt his being with me could help, but it was all in vain (drunk on ego) and he couldn't help me change until i was ready to change (poisoned and hopeless). the song was an eye opener and if you ever come across a friend or loved one going through something like this, this might be a good song to have them listen to, it may stir something.
Dan from Santa Clarita, Capersonally Chrissy from canada's statment makes perfect sence to me. a woman who holds some sort of inferiority complex, or such a psychological outlook. and how it was just too late to change her view.
Patch from Bangor, MeThis song is about Maynard's urge to heal the coincious. I really do think it was aimed at a certain romantic entanglment, but his general veiws a sleeping society overtook the song.
Jason from Fort Worth, TxI think this song has a rather general meaning. It's synonomous with the way the world's youth acts and thinks. We are all asleep, and to truly wake us up would be a futile endeavor.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
