Original video
I wonder, can you daydream at night?
Lying awake, I've had too much time
I'm watching picture shows in the shadows
Dance for the crowd tonight
Imagination is such a vivid place to hide
While stars watch over you

Through silent homes
The lights are out but I walk these halls
The way I've walked before
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls
The lights are out but I walk these halls
I promised not to wake you, so I'll walk light, just so you can hear

The rats in the roof and termites in the ceiling
We'll hear everything except what we need to hear
Sleeplessness is for the restless, and I'm just fine
Left to wander, aimless in unconsciousness

There's spiders crawling from the corners of my eyes
Let them weave their little webs to snatch the sunlight from the lens
I'm staring at the ceiling 'cause I'm fed up with the sight
Weigh my eyelids back to sleep, sealed by silken silver threads
While stars watch over you

Through silent homes
The lights are out but I walk these halls,
The way I've walked before
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls
The lights are out but I walk these halls
Cast the sheep out of your mind
Count the wolves and we'll sleep tonight

I stumble in and I stumble out of unfamiliar rooms in foreign houses
But I'm at home, a ghost that has left behind his sheets
Unrequited, until I wake up somewhere, 'til I wake up somewhere I know that I've never been

I'll stay 'til sleep takes over you (I'll stay 'til sleep takes over you)
And I'll walk while stars watch over you (I'll walk while stars watch over you)

Through silent homes
The lights are out but I walk these halls
The way I've walked before
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls
The lights are out but I walk these halls
The way I've walked before
Sleeping, with saints and apparitions between the walls
The lights are out but I walk these halls
Cast the sheep out of your mind
Count the wolves and we'll sleep tonight
