Testo the carpet crawlers - genesis

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 void.



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. They're moving in time to a heavy wooden door


Where the needle's 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.




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 that 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.




Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite


And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.

Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlight;

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.




The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.

The eager pack lift up their pitchers- the 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
