(A choir sings a verse of Jerusalem, fades to near silence then swells to chorus, dead stop)

Step by step,
claw by foot,
rope and wire,
higher and higher we climb the ladder.
Curl by twist,
as it curls we live.
Twist
Twissssss

Robot voice: In The Beginning

Jacob's Ladder
by hick and by Crick!
Rope and wire,
higher and higher,
we stand atop,
in this high heaven.

Robot voice: The Beginning There Was
