Wake Me Up! Lyrics
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start
They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if...

I believe it to be sarcasm. Basically he's trying to live life and enjoy it but folks are telling him he's living a dream and he's too young to understand things so the sarcasm comes in to play; just wake me up when it's over; I won't keep trying to find myself because I guess I'm just too young and apparently lost.
He tried to live up to the worlds expectation but he realized he couldn't ,hence he only had two hands. He'd like to travel and see the world signifying he wants to experience life on the fullest in a youthful and passionate and spontaneous way without plans but apparently his piers are judgmental so it's best just to fall asleep on life and wait until he's wiser and older so he can "live" with the correct perspective .

Being a teenager and having too many responsibilities and problems wanting to ignore them and just enjoy their time while they're young.

Picking himself up, making his way through a hard time.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
