Tracklist

Sleeper in Metropolis (extended remix)

length: 4:48
composer: David Harrow
writer: Anne Clark, David Harrow

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
It's 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

Short Story (Party mix!)

length: 1:52
There is a little place in a little room
Where a little chap hides away amidst the gloom.
Tucks his little legs undermeath a well-worn chair
Plucks a piece of paper and attacks at his despair.
A stubby lead pencil scratches through the fears
Of every little cruelness that reduces us to tears.
Sharp is the lead but well is penetrate

All the nooks and crannies that this world creates.
There is so little time for us to stop and look
As he places the cover upon his little book.
There will come a day when this little man will die
And they'll put him in a tiny hole undermeath the sky
His little lead pencel book and chair
Will be placed inside a plastic bag and taken who knows where
