The Carpet Crawlers

Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree

Arxivat a: Genesis, Música, El piano


There is lambswool under my naked feet
The wool is soft and warm
Gives off some kind of heat
A salamander scurries
Into flame to be destroyed
Imaginary creatures
Are trapped in birth on celluloid

The fleas cling to the golden fleece
Hoping they’ll find peace
Each thought and gesture
Are caught in celluloid
There’s no hiding in my memory
There’s no room to avoid

The crawlers cover the floor
In the red ochre corridor
For my second sight of people
They’ve more lifeblood than before
They’re moving in time
To a heavy wooden door
Where the needles eye is winking
Closing in on the poor

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
“We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out”

There’s only one direction in the faces that I see;
It’s upward to the ceiling, where the chambers said to be
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing they’re free

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
“We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out”

Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright
Through the door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;
It’s the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
“We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out”

The porcelain mannequin with shattered skin fears attack
And the eager pack lift up their pitchers, they carry all they lack
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack
And the tickler takes his stickleback

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
“We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out”

“We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out”

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
“We’ve got to get in to get out”
