Track Name: The Dead Sea
I have seen that you have fallen again
Down, pulled down
The earth closing over your head
But that won't do, not for you

So I'll come down
Hide myself inside of your skin
Wear, wear the crown
Live the life that you have lived
'Cos this won't do, not for you

Sing, sing out loud
Move us all to tears if you can
Tears won't matter now
You've nothing more to fear from them
They won't do, not for you
Track Name: Speaking In Tongues
Yes, everyone has thoughts like that
Everyone's afraid they're next
I know you may be right
Someday we all will have to die
But I can't say it's right
Even the dark has the stars to bring it light

I know you love your kids
And for them you only want what's best
But think about it now
And see just how we were meant for this, I guess

Have you heard a word I've said?
This is all just in your head
And I know just who you are
You're not someone who'd go that far

You're just like all the rest
Track Name: Post-Modern Love
There is within me a life of pornography
Though you'll never see the thoughts that destroy me
How can this be?
Are there two sides to everything?
How can this be?
Is no one really what they seem?

I saw her walking by
In her face, I saw the light
Then I raped her with my mind
And went home to my loving wife

How can this be?
What would she think
If she could only see
The darkness I bring with me?
Track Name: Attractive and Unattractive
Turn to the right. It's more attractive
Wear suit and tie. Loosen your grip
Say what you like, but do not say that
Take me to bed, but do not do that
Give me some space, love and affection

Please hold my hand when we cross the street
Write me a song. Sing it nice and sweet
I can't stand the way you're always singing
I can't stand the way you never talk to me
I love you now more than anything

Wear your black dress, the one I like the best
Don't speak like that, melodramatic
Be what you want, but do not be that
Go where you want, but do not come back
Just let me breathe. Come and hold me

You really need to try to get some rest
Just sit back. Close your eyes. Relax
Why can't you just finish anything?
Why are you still so demanding?
I love you now more than anything
Track Name: The Transfiguration (Parts I & II)
How, how will I fight those demons today?
How will I turn them all away from here?
What will I be without them to please?
I don't think I can shake this disease
I don't want to wake
Not yet today
My horoscope must have lied about the way
I need to balance my needs
Need to find someone to please
Or that I'm holding back the winds of change
I'll have my palm read
Get some drugs for my head
Watch a film about the way life should be
With those perfect teeth
Masculinity
With skin that feels and eyes that see
Like how will I fight those demons today?
How will I turn them all away?
Track Name: Fresh, Fresher, Freshest
Let's take a walk
and leave our cares behind us
let's take a walk
and leave our care behind us
Let's take a walk
and leave out cares behind us
Let's take a walk

What shall we do when the icestorm comes
and how shall we see
when he's darkened the sun
when the islands have fled
and the mountains have gone
where will we go

Let's take a walk
and leave out cares behind us
Let's take a walk
and leave our cares behind us
let's take a walk
and leave our care behind us
Let's take a walk

I see four horsemen
with dark eyes and bright wings
and look at my wrist
and please tell me what you see
cause there is a book
do you see the name Lee written there

So Let's take a walk
leave out cares behind us
Let's take a walk
leave our cares behind us
let's take a walk
leave our care behind us
Let's take a walk

So Let's take a walk
leave out cares behind us
Let's take a walk
leave our cares behind us
let's take a walk
leave our care behind us
Let's take a walk
Track Name: Third Trumpet. Fourth Trumpet Sounding
I only heard the first and third
But I saw them fall
The stars and all
I think I lost my brother this time

The fourth will come
Darken the sun
But not all of it
We'll have some left
To get a tan and learn the name Apollyon

Soon they'll come
Euphrates' sons
They've waited long
Watched everyone
As they laughed and lay in the sun

And when they're done with everyone
With man and wife, daughter and son
Will you still not care what you've done?
Track Name: A Happiness
And when you see me naked
The scars I've been given
You and I in the dark light
What's in your mind?

But some still call it making love
And some believe that's what it was
But when you're young, you love to fuck
When you're young, that's enough

But I should be divinity
And you should be the virgin queen
As the Lord Himself descends and angels sing

But then the darkness turns on us
It turns on us
Track Name: Make Me A Blessing
Make me a blessing. Make me sing
Like I did when I was so young
Full of light

Make me a blessing. Make me believe
That everything is all right
All right?

Make me a blessing
Track Name: Wedding Feast of the Lamb: First Movement
I sleep soundly with my wife
My children never fight
And I wake happy, wash my body
Being careful to make sure I'm sex-free
With smiles that linger, rings on fingers
Feel the power of a perfect figure
Then off to work to earn the dollars
I give to those in need of liquor
To help them numb themselves

I sing softly to myself
The very words others yell
I tried to get angry, I raised my voice daily
But nothing could move me to raise banners and scream
So I'll try harder, give blood, give water
Give skin to those burning with desire
And play with children, sing with the choir
And offer my prayers to the little flower
To save us from the fire

I'll die smiling, turn toward heaven
Sing some old songs and claim my crown
Then I'll go to find someone I've been waiting
To talk with since I read The Habit of Being
She'll tell me her story of sorrow and suffering
She'll tell me it's so sad the way we've been acting
For we are surrounded by thousands of liars
That sing lovely songs in a river of fire
That flows from the hand of the Father
