("Climbing Plant" by Popperipopp)



“Creeper” is directly inspired by the following aphorism from The Dhammapada :

and accompanying translator’s note :

The piece forms an allegory wherein destructive mental processes are compared to creeping plants, and depicts a confrontation between creeper and host in four stages : introduction, growth, conquest, and extinction.


The audio clip presents the last sections of the composition which correspond to the extinction of the sabotaging parasitical vine. The host has won the final confrontation and confirms his triumph by revealing the modus operandi and nature of his opponent :


(All your doom scenarios never come to pass)
Always analyzing / Undermines every choice
(Expected catastrophes never come to life)

Creeper now I can see / You sabotage my dream
(All your doom scenarios never come to pass)
Yet share its quality / Thus ends your little scheme
(Expected catastrophes never come to life)

While the lead singer plays the part of the host, the backing vocalists repeat a victorious mantra.


The plant then makes a few attempts to rise from its ashes, but all are short-lived as they are rapidly recognized and subdued by the conqueror.
