  • In my dreams I'm dying all the time
    Then I wake it's kaleidoscopic mind
    I never meant to hurt you
    I never meant to lie

    So this is goodbye?
    This is goodbye

    Tell the truth, you've never wanted me
    Tell me

    In my dreams I'm jealous all the time
    When I wake I'm going out of my mind
    Going out of my mind Writer/s: Richard Melville Hall

  • Aleea from Bellevue(not The Hospital)This song will always make me tremble. I believe it to be about suicide. My daughters' ex-boyfriend called her, and then asked her to dinner. She was in another relationship, and declined. He took his own life a week later. We believe he wanted to say goodbye, or reach out for reasons not to.... It's a heartbreak.
  • Daniel from Buenos Aires, ArgentinaI love the way the extreme compression over the piano reef acts as a rytmic feature. Great!!!!
  • Adam from Centralia, Waamazing song, favorite by moby, no idea why people wouldnt like it, the little piano riffs are an amazing touch
