GILES MITCHELL'S DIMENSION THEATRE
CRACKS IN A CITY
The snake comes to the surface
Like coalminers we climb its coils
The underground drags us day into night, night into day
We dig into its depths
Finding the cracks in our bodies
The cracks in our souls
Fantasy on the walls
Truth in tho piss on the floors
We are drugged by the dropping of coins into machines
We are drugged by the repetitive warning voice in the lift
We are drugged by the screams of the trains
And the doors being ripped open and closed
As the underground digs its hyperdermic into our veins.
There will be an interval of 15 minutes.
