Testo in the cage - genesis

I got sunshine in my stomach

Like I just rocked my baby to sleep.

I got sunshine in my stomach

But I can't keep me from creeping sleep


Sleep
deep in the deep.



Rockface moves to press my skin

White liquids turn sour within

Turn fast - turn sour

Turn sweat - turn sour.

Must tell myself that I'm not here.

I'm drowning in a liquid fear.

Bottled in a strong compression


My distortion shows obsession

In the cave.

Get me out of this cave !



If I keep self-control


I'll be safe in my soul.

And the childhood belief

Brings a moment's relief


But my cynic soon returns

And the lifeboat burns.

My spirit just never learns.



Stalactites
stalagmites

Shut me in
lock me tight.

Lips are dry
throat is dry.

Feel like burning
stomach churning


I'm dressed up in a white costume

Padding out left-over room.

Body stretching
feel the wretching

In the cage

Get me out of the cage!



In the glare of a light

I see a strange kind of sight;

O cages joined to from a star

Each person can't go very far;

All tied to their things

They are netted by their strings


Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings.



Outside the cage I see my brother John


He turn his head so slowly round.

I cry out Help! before he can be gone


And he looks at me without a sound.



And I shout out John please help me !

But he does not even want to try to speak.

I'm helpless in my violent rage

And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek.

My little runaway.



In a trap
feel a starp

Holding still
Pinned for kill.

Chances narrow that I'll make it


In the cushioned straitjacket.

Just like 22nd St


And they got me by my neck and feet.

Pressure's building
can't take more.

My headache's charged. Earaches roar.

In this pain

Get me out of this pain.



If I could change to liquid


I could fill the cracks up in the rock


But I know that I am solid

And I am my own bad luck.

Outside John disappears and my cage dissolves


And without any reason my body revolvess.



Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Turning around

Just spinning around.

Down
down
down..
