Dejected concrete jungles
That never seem to end
Through complex tower structures
Aimlessly they transcend
Over forgotten ghettos
They won't show on maps
Inequal distribution of wealth
Coincidental perhaps?

I tried to make my connection
In a world that shows no affection
America's busy sleeping

I saw divisions
In our undivided land
With power unforgiving
Fueled by greed it can't withstand
It's self-inflicted dreams of hope
Laughing in our faces
Getting fixed w/ it's own dope
Sponsored by class races

I tried to make my connection
In a world that shows no affection
America's busy sleeping

Sleep it off
Everything will go away
-Sleep it off again-
Shop till you drop
And everything will be okay
-Sleep it off again-
Party till you puke in your comfortable houses
-Sleep it off again-
The streets are paved with the negligence of thousands
Sleep it off again

Looked into desperate eyes
Unfulfilled abandoned lives
Heartless city after city
Of a common man in a not so
Promising land
With very narrow means
To urgent human needs
