"Sleep" as written by Charles Hayward, Gareth Williams and Charles Bullen....
Sleep,sleep,sleep,go to sleep
Sleep go to sleep

You are now in a deep sleep
In store promises
Endless possibilities
A life of ease
A life cocooned in a routine of food
Stimulus and response
Softness is a thing called comfort
Doesn't cost much to keep in touch
We never forget you have a choice
Possibilities in store
A taste of paradise
Success on a plate for you
Endless promises
Sleep, sleep, sleep, go to sleep
You are now in a deep sleep

    My InterpretationSince Deceit is surrounded by fears of a nuclear war, 'Sleep' represents our lack of choice. Basically, there's anything we can do, so it's better to sleep. It has kind of an hypnotic connotation, as if the album is preparing us for the worst. Sleep really links with the general concept.

    My InterpretationThis song is a lullaby sung by the leaders of the world as they lead the world into nuclear destruction. They promise everything will be the same as before "A life of ease. A life cocooned in a routine of food" and that the people have a "choice" in the state of things and that they have "endless possibilities" in their future and "a taste of paradise", when in reality it's all deceit (hence the album title) and lies sung to keep themselves in power as they (the world leaders) drive human civilization over the metaphorical cliff of consumerism, conservatism, and destruction.
