Sleeper In Metropolis

This song is by Anne Clark and appears on the album Changing Places (1983).

Original video
As a sleeper in metropolis
You are insignificance
Dreams become entangled in the system

Environment moves over the sleeper
Conditioned air
Conditions sedated breathing
The sensation of viscose sheets on naked flesh
Soft and warm
But lonesome in the blackened ocean of night

Confined in the helpless safety of desires and dreams
We fight our insignificance
The harder we fight
The higher the wall

Outside, the cancerous city spreads
Like an illness
Its symptoms
In cars that cruise to inevitable destinations
Tailed by the silent spotlights
Of society-created paranoia

No alternative could grow
Where love cannot take root
No shadows will replace
The warmth of your contact

Love is dead in metropolis
All contact through glove or partition
What a waste
The city
A wasting disease
