    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

    This song too is about Cocaine & freebasing in particular. When someone runs out of the "rocks" to smoke, people will literally "Crawl on the Carpet" looking for anything that looks like a "rock" to smoke.
