Genesis - Cuckoo Cocoon Lyrics




Wrapped up in some powdered wool- I guess I'm losing touch
Don't tell me this is dying, 'cos I ain't changed that much
The only sound is water drops, I wonder where the hell I am
Some kind of jam?
Cuckoo Cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

There's nothing I can recognize; this is nowhere that I've known
With no sign of life at all, I guess that I'm alone
And I feel so secure that I know this can't be real but I feel good
Cuckoo cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

I wonder if I'm a prisoner locked up in some Brooklyn jail
Or some sort of Jonah shut up inside the whale
No - I'm still Rael and I'm stuck in some kind of cave
What could've saved me?
Cuckoo cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

Genesis Cuckoo Cocoon Comments
  1. Donald Tramp

    [Verse 1]
    Wrapped up in some powdered wool
    I guess I'm losing touch
    Don't tell me this is dying
    Cause I ain't changed that much
    The only sound is water drops
    I wonder where the hell I am
    Some kind of jam?

    Cuckoo cocoon, have I come to, too soon for you?

    [Verse 2]
    There's nothing I can recognize; this is nowhere that I've known
    With no sign of life at all, I guess that I'm alone
    And I feel so secure that I know this can't be real
    But I feel good

    Cuckoo cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

    [Verse 3]
    I wonder if I'm a prisoner locked in some Brooklyn jail
    Or some sort of Jonah shut up inside the whale
    No I'm still Rael and I'm stuck in some kind of cave
    What could've saved me?

    Cuckoo cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

    The actual music: Really nice
    The solo lyrics: Horrendous, was the mic in the water?
    The backup lyrics: Really nice

  3. Scott Daris

    This is purely a heroin nod. Warm white comfort in self-perceived safety and radiant love.

  4. S. Rathgeber

    Maybe one of the happier tunes on this Album. But those lyrics - Peter is a Poet, isnt he?

  5. Nick Burns

    Stunning track from a masterpiece of an album, loved it in 1970’s, still sends shivers and always will.

  6. jonathas pinheiro

    Collins é um bom aluno,e Gabriel um excelente mestre...(>;)

  7. Mike Pugh

    My second Genesis album in the 70s, Wind and Wuthering was the first. Love them both, along with all but the last Genesis album.

  8. Roberto Zanella

    e' troppo bella

  15. Maria White

    This is where I come. When life is too overbearing. I trust here, to lay my crushedheart down in profound secret. Peter, leading the way for me 40 years and more.

    Delfina Leonardini

    love this comment. so true my friend...

  16. John Meowzer

    Steve Hackett, underrated guitarist. He was conjuring *dreampop* guitar sounds before the term even existed. Hackett and Jan Akkerman were two of my childhood favorite guitarists.

    Al Desimone

    The more videos on YouTube that I find about Steve Hackett has opened my eyes to what an amazing musician he is. He is so modest about his talent.

    I meant sea-life smell, like at the Aquarium(Dolphins & sea lions).

    lofi_n_chill

    Stefanie Pezzino did you really elaborate on a comment made a year prior?

  24. Stefanie Pezzino

    F-sharp! Reminds me of a green winter-garden with an aqua colored pool. The smell of chlorine is very strong,as a crazy perspiring, 2- day beard wearing Rael falls into this place from the darkness above. His fall is cushioned by the big man-eating leaves of the F-sharp.

  25. Mr. Burns

    This song is brilliant.

    Brian Landsman

    +Mr. Burns Really underrated song. I totally agree.

    Damon Willis
