06. A little life

[zurück zur Discografie]

(Text Sergio Savioli)

IT WAS LYING THERE ON THE CARPET, A DARK BIT OF FLUFF
A SPECK OF DIRT, READY TO BE VACUUMED OR SWEPT UP

BUT A CLOSER LOOK, UNDER THE LENS
REVEALED A PERFECT FURRY CREATURE WITH MOTIONLESS WINGS
WITH LEGS AND ANTENNAS THAT WHERE NOT EVEN TWITCHING
ITS TRUE STATE AND LIFE STORY TOTALLY UNKNOWN

A LITTLE LIFE, A LITTLE LIFE WAS LYING THERE ON THE CARPET
A LITTLE LIFE, A LITTLE LIFE WAS LYING THERE ON THE CARPET
A LITTLE LIFE, A LITTLE LIFE WAS LYING THERE ON THE CARPET

BUT ITS TINY TUM WAS STIRRING SLIGHTLY, SO I PLACED IT ON SOME PAPER
ON THE SILL AND REMEMBERING, THE GIGANTIC QUANTITIES WE STEAL

I OFFERED TO RETURN A MICROSCOPIC AMOUNT
OF ITS OWN WHOLESOME GOLDEN STUFF THEN WENT AWAY NOT KNOWING
WHAT ELSE TO DO

BUT RETURNED NOW AND THEN TO SEE IF LIFE HAD COME OR GONE
AND SAW ITS LEGS AT TIMES UPTURNED, NOT EVEN QUIVERING
THOUGH ITS TONGUE WAS FEEBLY REACHING OUT BUT LATER IT WAS STANDING
AND TENTATIVELY EXPLORING
ONE ANTENNA OUT OF ACTION BUT THE OTHER PERKY AS IT SHOULD BE

A LITTLE LIFE, A LITTLE LIFE TWO HOURS LATER IT WAS GONE
TWO HOURS LATER IT WAS GONE
TWO HOURS LATER IT WAS GONE
