I truly admire anyone willing to attempt the Gabiel interpretation task. But I'd also point out some key symbols in 'Carpet Crawlers' that you may have missed. The 'Lambs Wool under my naked feet' is RED which is verified by Gabriel himself in the following line 'Red ocher corridor' Hello... Red Carpet! Ocher is also another word for GOLD. Now we have Red and Gold. (Hollywood) or more directly The Music Industry which Gabriel was more closely associated with. It is quite obvious these days that to be in the music industry 'You gotta get in to get out' is by now, a well trodden cliche. The 'Crawlers' are the people willing to walk the red-carpet corridor to the place beyond the '...heavy wooden doors' to receive the Golden (ocher) prize. They all 'heed their callers' (MK handlers) I also don't think that he (Gabriel) would not mention the word 'celluloid' twice for no apparent reason. Once you apply this theme to the song, the residual elements begin to buttress his disdain for the music industry. \n\nThe Gabriel genius is only emerging in 1973 when the Genesis LLDOB was released, and there is definitely a bundle of information to decipher in that one. His solo career from that point is quite literally glowing with symbolic reference. I would love to hear your assessment of 'Here comes the Flood.'

well done Editor.
Dennis Frank
nice!
Don Lawler
a very interesting visual interpretation... I've listened to this song 1,000 times since 1974 - and I saw lots of images in my head to go with the lyrics - but, none like these... I enjoyed what you did.  I never considered babies or love making or sperm - I always saw the song as a symbolic reference to money slaves - and people in general missing the 'bigger picture'.

Beautiful!
Gabriel Kousouros
Quality n cute
Gary W. Wade
Interesting concept

I believe it to be about going to heaven, carpet crawlers heed there callers is praying and its about church not birth
Giuseppe Gabrieli
Beautiful and interesting point of view, maybe this gives us hope for a better future

Im usually very sceptic to many of the lyrics videos of great bands.This one proved it wrong,it is a magical piece of work that progressed in the tune wich is the best from Genesis ever !!\n\nThank you very much :-)

sperm needs to get in the egg for a boy to come out. it's a beautiful thing in profound meaning.
Jon Parker
Suzie...I think it carries a double meaning, the definite life death beauty, but also of a psychedelic/power plant/hallucinogen 'trip' of spiritual gnosis...that's the Peter Gabriel that shocked so many of us when The Lamb came out, he's just genius!
Karina Reza

Thank you so much--you did such a good job!! I practice singing to this often. Would love to sing it in public some time and freak people's doors off with the imagination in this song. Gabriel's, I guess. I mean, duh. ;)
