Good call.

The Red Chord always have some interesting lyrics, going pretty deep in many places.

I've posted to keep this thread going... I wanna hear a answer too.

Comparing life to what a dog dreams about? Written while watching his pet dog roll around and dream on the floor?

Dog years accumulate faster than human years. Maybe he meant that his dream felt very long, possibly longer than he felt like he slept. Maybe it's about a coma, or only being partially awake while some sort of coma-induced surgery is taking place (IE - Hearing the metal clank, surgical tools?). It really could be interperated in a lot of different ways.

EDIT: People on songmeanings have said it was about someone's dog dying. Someone else said the song was written while he watched his dog rolling around on the floor dreaming.
