Nach der Erzählung „Das Fliegenpapier“ von Robert Musil. Jedes Mal wenn ich sie lese, verursacht sie mir eine Gänsehaut.

lyrics

TANGLE FOOT

APPROXIMATELY FOURTEEN INCHES LONG –
COATED WITH A YELLOW POISON
THEY LAND, THEY HEED, SO MANY (OTHERS) THERE,
ONLY TO GET STUCK ON THE OUTERMOST JOINTS
NO NOOO

TRYING TO MOVE A TOO HEAVY LOAD
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
TRYING TO MOVE A TOO HEAVY LOAD
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
FOURTEEN INCHES LONG
FORCED DOWN BY THE YELLOW GLUE
GET OOOOOUT!

THEIR TONGUES GROPE LIKE TINY HAMMERS
THE ENEMY IS ALWAYS PASSIVE
TAKE A BREATH AND TRY AGAIN
BUT THE INTERVALS GROW EVER LONGER
NO NOOO

TRYING TO MOVE A TOO HEAVY LOAD
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
TRYING TO MOVE A TOO HEAVY LOAD
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
FOURTEEN INCHES LONG
FORCED DOWN BY THE YELLOW GLUE

MOVING A HEAVY LOAD
FORWARD ON THEIR FACE
FALLEN FROM GRACE

CONVULSIVE SPASTIC MOVES
SOLDIERS THROUGH AND THROUGH
SALUTE TO WHOM?

THERE COMES THE MOMENT FOR THE NEED OF A RELIEF
A SECOND WINS OVER INSTINCTS
IT IS THE MOMENT WHEN A HUNTED MAN DROPS DEAD
HIS LUNGS ACHING FULL OF PAIN
FULL OF PAIN

TRYING TO MOVE A TOO HEAVY LOAD
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
FORCED DOWN BY THE GLUE
FORCED DOWN BY THE YELLOW GLUE

MOVING A HEAVY LOAD
FORWARD ON THEIR FACE
FALLEN FROM GRACE

CONVULSIVE SPASTIC MOVES
SOLDIERS THROUGH AND THROUGH
SALUTE TO WHOM?
