48 seconds not wasted :) - I interpret the first verse of Wake me up! and explain happiness, dreams, reality, time, experience, acceptance, peace, don't stick your hand in dark holes, and more.
"Feeling my way through the darkness" - The trouble with feeling your way through the darkness: If you stick your hand in a dark hole, you don't know WHAT'S hiding in there!
"Guided by a beating heart". In Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell Tale Heart", the murder was guided to confession by the beating of his own heart, which he thought was the beating of the dead man's heart. Thanks Vincent Price for a great acting job!
"I don't care where the journey will end." There are different types of infinities. Easily mathematically proven - look up Cantor Infinities on Google to explain it or Youtube. Do we live after we die? Sure! How? I don't know I have my own ideas. The way I view the nature of the Universe, from a dimension higher, all TIME simply "is". We never die. We always live. Like many things in life, just because you don't see something - or someone - doesn't mean that it - or they - aren't there!
"But I know where to start": 1) First you notice something out of place 2) That creates a gap or void in you 3) You start when you decide to fill in the gap.
"They tell me I'm too young to understand". By the age of four, you know almost everything you need to know in life. You are fluent in whatever your primary languages are going to be. The rest of life is roleplaying. Consider four year olds roleplaying marriage - how complicated is that!?
"They say I'm caught up in a dream" - The only difference between a dream and reality is we CHOOSE what is real. We all live in a dream world of our own choosing - and expect others to be a part of our dream. When they are not, we get mad, start fighting and wars. We choose to believe those woh tell us what reality is. But we don't have to. Our perspectives are always different. it is not possible for two objects - even eyes + brain to be in the same place at the same time moving in the same way.
"Life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes." - Time is the measure between events. But if there is no input from the bodies senses (ike eyes/touch/ears), there's no time. People who are in comas do not experience time passing by. They wake up the same age they went in. Nothing happened.
"Well that's fine by me." Anything you accept as true, is true. Agreement is something else altogether. The key to happiness is acceptance. it is where peace comes from.
