If there's is an exactly middle way between Synth Pop and Electro, is this one: Anne Clark's "Sleeping In Metropolis" became a standard of both genres. The line of synths are the spine of "Sleeper In Metropolis"'s futuristic aura.
The lyrics are a kind of a warning about one's accommodation in the deepness of his dreams as opposed to the harsh reality that surrounds us. It's about our fight against our insignificance - but we are "confined in the helpless safety of desires and dreams - We fight our insignificance; the harder we fight, the higher the wall(...)".
