Asleep in Metropolis - Lyrics

The voice on the radio
Tries to convince me
So smooth

Yeah, he's my friend
His words are universal truth

A tango slides through the night
A glimpse of slender, twining limbs
Cannot mistake desire
It tries to draw me in

An envelope of diamonds, no name
Scattered, sparkling in my hand
The brilliance splits the night again
Many signs to understand

I'm asleep in Metropolis
You will wake me with a Judas kiss

I saw in black and white
When I was young
Then I grew
The colours multiplied
Became a million shades of blue

I'm living in Orwell's world
The embrace, it was so soft
We're living with Orwell's truths
It didn't wake us up

Deep cover, deep
My passions breathe
Far beneath any sight
Running like the swirling, teeming streets
In the darkest of nights

I'm asleep in Metropolis
You will wake me with a Judas kiss

I'm asleep in Metropolis
You will wake me with a Judas kiss
