The Carpet Crawlers Lyrics
anonymous Oct 21st report
The song follows Counting Out Time (the song where he has his sexual encounter). It makes sense that the lyrics conjure images of sperm making there journey. But, it doesn't explain much of the specific lyrics that seem to be LSD driven nonsense.

It has always conjured up the image of semen making it's way through the cervix and the feast is the unfertilised egg. Why else would the liquid conjeal and leak out through the cracks, that's what happens after intercourse and why women always seem to end up sleeping on the wet side of the bed.

Songwriters are just filling in words to go with the music. Hopefully the words conjure a sense of having meaning just in the mere act of performance like Peter Gabriel’s incredible vocals. If there’s any meaning to it it’s not very clear and not worth worrying about as obviously the songwriter wasn’t concerned about it either. It’s 70’s psychedelic rock. What do you expect?

Semen - simple as that!
One amazing and cool song by GENESIS, that for me it's about a foreign southern kid coming In and Out of the new strange land of The North[Boston, New York etc.,] looking up in amazement and tripping on His feet, then looking down and seeing all of those old Carpet- baggers coming out of the woodwork, where He's also imagining and thinking how in the hell He's going to ''shake off'' all of those Carpet-baggers that manage to crawl on His back and get out of Their weaving maze. As a young kid I've gotten a kick out of this song when watching the Rugrats coming to play. And when one of Them was trying to breakoutter Their boundaries and do the Carpet Crawling out of His chamber. By which was just another way that was in need to climb up and In and Out from.

it's when you die and come back to life You have to get in to get out. 1/18/18 I died after 4 min. they brought me back to life I had tubes down my neck and could talk so I wrote down carpet crawlers because all I heard when I was dead was you have to get in to get out
