Beat a frantic pace
And it's not even seven AM
You're feeling the rush of anguish settling
You cannot help showing them in
Hurry up then
Or you'll fall behind and
They will take control of you
And you need to...

For me, this is the song about a terminally ill person, maybe even child( It's about the pain which the little one still have to undertake before he will "fall asleep" forever... As I see it, this is the song of grieving parent, who got used to the idea he needs to let it go and just wants to calm the pain and ease the last days of his child... "sleep, sugar", "sleep, sweetie"...

I can't give a line by line interpretation, but I think this is what it means:
They're basically saying "Sleep" to forget your bad memories. ''carry you over to new morning" meaning forget the bad past. "Fickle visions" as in the bad memories. The whole song is about getting over a tragedy or something that internally scars you. The tune is also slow to emphasize on calming down and dealing with the problem.
Hope it was helpful!! (Imjust gave u MY jist on the song;it doesn't have to mean exactly that. :P)
