Sleeper In Metropolis


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 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.


Our Darkness


Through these city nightmares you'd walk with me
And we'd talk of it with idealistic assurance
That it wouldn't tear us apart
We'd keep our heads above the blackened water
But there's no room for ideals in this mechanical place
And you're gone now
Through a grimy window that I can't keep clean
Through billowing smoke that's swallowed the sun
You're nowhere to be seen
Do you think our desires still burn
I guess it was desires that tore us apart
There has to be passion
A passion for living, surviving
And that means detachment
Every-body has a weapon to fight you with
To beat you with when you are down
There were too many defences between us
Doubting all the time
Fearing all the time
Doubting all the time
Fearing all the time
That like these urban nightmares
We'd blacken each other skies
When we passed the subway we tried to ignore our fate there
Of written threats on endless walls
Unjustified crimes carried on stifled calls
Would you walk with me now through this pouring rain
It used to mingle with our tears then dry with the hopes
That we left behind
It rains even harder now .



Homecoming


Walking into light
From the blank evening sky
Knuckles rub away the darkness
Circling my eyes
Walking into warmth
From the cold evening air
Numb white fingers push
Greasy rain through my hair
You walk into view
From shadow thrown against the door
Hands reach out and grasp the moment
They've been waiting for
You pull me close
Dampness seeps
through to your skin
You peel the layrs away
I feel the fire ignite within
You create the feeling
I contain the need
It's moments that we're stealing
No pleasure's ever free
You sustain the rhythm
I'll maintain the beat
It's the only ,chance we're given
Let's turn this cold to heat
You possess the notion
I take full heed
We're bound by this emotion
Two bodies - one heartbeat
You create the feeling
I contain the need
You sustain the rhythm
I'll maintain the beat
Desire comes alive
Nothing interrups the flow
Water nurtures every crevice
Where this love needs to grow
Sliding to the floor
We swell , falling to the ground
The world becomes a place
With no clear shapes, with no clear sounds
We're lost for a short while
In the knot where love's entwined
You pour the freedom from deep inside
I drink it back like wine
The murmur of your voice
Soft words soothe away the doubt
your strength - so essential
Something i can't do without
You ....
Inside we slow each movement
'Til we're static once again
Outside the city runs
Cars through roads like bloood through veins
Here sweet sticky air
Loke a cover keeps us warm
Drops of love fall from us
The last moments of the storm
Opening my eyes
You're even closer now to me
As the crowd goes pushing onwards
Crashing forwards like a sea
We turn and feel the world
Right now a million miles away
It's always there to interfere
But I'm always here to say
You ....



Heaven


Every day is heaven
Moves further and further away
Familiar blue eyes I once knew
turn a colder shade of prey
Every day is heaven
Moves further and further away
Familiar words we used to share
Seem so difficult to say
And I am alone
In a world of cold flesh, cold steel, cold stone
I close up like a clam
And shut the world out with the slam of a door
To shut out all the fighting, all the hatred, all the war
You just cannot stay calm
When your soul screams less
But someone always wants more
What for ?
Every day is heaven
Moves further and further away
Familiar blue eyes I once knew
turn a colder shade of prey
Every day
Heaven moves further and further away

I can live everywhere in the world, but it must be near an airport -and a pharmacy, I would add.

Δεν είναι ο ύπνος της λογικής που γεννάει τέρατα, αλλά ο άγρυπνος ορθολογισμός που πάσχει από αϋπνίες.
