Understanding Binary

It's funny how nighttime can twist up reality, I see
It's funny how lifelike darkness can feel in a dream
It's funny how the empty can feed you your coldest of fears
And then when the light comes, you're no further from tears
And when I come to, I'm no closer to the truth
I can't touch or feel or even speak to you
And it's been said, I know it's all in my head
But I can't shake the idea or the inkling or the feeling
That sometimes, nightmares come true...

'Cause missing you
Doesn't translate to seeing you
Doesn't translate to holding you
Touching you
Feel your heartbeat against my skin
I'm speaking in zeroes and ones
But the world is just shoutin' back in tongues
And I'm trying to hide it, just keep it inside
But it's holding on for dear life
Cross my heart
Hope to die
Hear your voice just one more time
Tryin' to fight the night
But my fears keep it alive

It's funny how the darkness seeps into the cracks in the truth
So I can try and I try to wash it away but in the end it's no use
And I know this will all be over soon
This will all go away when I can just speak to you
But this ache in my chest
Won't let me rest
Because through all that is broken
The one thing that I know is
That sometimes, nightmares come true...
And missing you
Doesn't translate to seeing you
Doesn't translate to holding you
Touching you
Feel your heartbeat against my skin
I'm speaking in zeroes and ones
But the world is just shoutin' back in tongues
And I'm trying to hide it, just keep it inside
I'm holding on for dear life
Cross my heart
Hope to die
Hear your voice just one more time
Tryin' to fight the night
But my fears keep it alive

But what can I do
Except wait for the truth?
And what can I say
Except I hope you're okay?
And I know
This is all in my mind
Gets twisted up all the time
Pounding with the
Voices I have left behind
But this hand
Clutching against my heart
Makes me wanna start
And scream and
Wake from this dream
That's followed me
Into reality
'Cause missing you
Doesn't translate to seeing you
Doesn't translate to holding you
Touching you
Feel your heartbeat against my skin
I'm speaking in zeroes and ones
But the world is just shoutin' back in tongues
I'm trying to hide it, just keep it inside
Just need to know you're alive

'Cause missing you
Doesn't translate to seeing you
Doesn't translate to holding you
Touching you
Feel your heartbeat against my skin
I'm speaking in zeroes and ones
But the world is just shoutin' back in tongues
I'm trying to hide it, just keep it inside
But it's holding on for dear life
Cross my heart
Hope to die
Hear your voice just one more time
Tryin' to fight the night
But my fears keep it alive

Yeah, cross my heart
Hope to die
Hear your voice just one more time
Tryin' to fight the night
But my fears keep it alive
It's funny how nighttime can twist up reality, I see
It's funny how lifelike darkness can feel in a dream...
