Genesis: In the Cage

From: The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

During the verses Hackett is very low in the mix. Listen to live versions and
compare. Also, the timing on Hackett's contributions there is quite hard, so
improvise (that's my advise)!

I've got sunshine in my stomach


Like I just rocked my baby to sleep.
There's sunshine in my stomach
And 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

If I keep my self-control,
I'll be safe in my soul.
And the childhood belief
Brings a moment's relief,

And the lifeboat burns.

Stalactites, stalagmites
Shut me in, lock me tight.
Lips are dry, throat is dry.
Feel like burning, stomach churning,

Padding out leftover room.

In the glare of a light,
I see a strange kind of sight;
Of cages joined to form 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 turns 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 '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,
And I watch him turn away and leave the cage.
My little runaway.

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

In a trap, feel a strap
Holding still. Pinned for kill.
Chances narrow that I'll make it,
In the cushioned straight-jacket.

Just like 22nd Street,
When they got me by my neck and feet.
Pressures building, can't take any more.
My headaches charge. My earaches roar.

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.

But outside John disappears and my cage dissolves,
and without any reason my body revolves.
