1. The Usher (14:17)
All of my life, I've been waiting for you,
Come lay down your head, rest in my arms, you're free tonight
You're in the eyes of those whose luck has run out
A tender end to a life of descent

Every lawman knows that you cannot be argued
Even despots know that when they die, you'll rule still

You're supreme, immutable, unchanging
You're never failing through the ages
You are the usher at the unknown portal
You stand silent among the din and clamor

All of my life I've been waiting for you
With open arms, I'll come running towards you

You're supreme, immutable, unchanging
You're never failing through the ages

You're more constant than the stars
Because the change their paths with the seasons
You're more constant than the Moon
Because she hides her face in the shadows
You're more constant than the sun
Because one day her embrace will melt the earth
You're more constant than the gods
Because sometimes when we call, they don't answer at all

All in all, we end the same
(Come lay down your head, rest in my arms, you're free tonight)
2. Ghosts of a Dead Empire (11:05)
One score for stepparents and the Seven Dwarves
Falling all over yourselves
To be the fairest in the land

Slavery to a cruel idol
Slavery to a hollow fable

Don't forget that your Aryan lust has led
To one hundred men hanging from trees amid the circling crows
And as only the obscure know, the tainted fruit never ends

They opened your mouth and they poured in the good of the land
Then they claimed and leashed you to their heavenly plan
Now the ghosts of a dead empire are written all over your face
Along with the failed ruins of their version of eternal grace
3. Cosey Mo (7:31)
O Cosey Mo, I feel your pain
When they all want you but they don't know your game
I guess your death will pass in time
But in the meantime let me build your shrine

I promise you that I will find you
I'll dig up every unmarked grave
I promise you that I will find you, darling, find you
And on your tomb I'll carve your name

Oh Cosey Mo, I feel your rage
When they hunt you down and put you in their cage
I understand your need to hide
Not from fear from losing your mind

Burning instead of beauty
4. Fat of the Ram (12:18)
I live in a place where the horizon rises up to meet the sky
And a dead lake lies fallow underneath a burning sun
In the houses people dream what life would be like without a tally
In the houses people dream what life would be like shadowless

Cities by dead lakes and million miles of barbed wire
Come to the altar and lay down your numb consecration
Sorrow, desolation

There's never shelter for me in the halls of the righteous
All preserved corpses and mummified dancers

They are all gentlemen
They only kill by common consent

Everywhere I look all I see is famine
A famine of form instead of feeling
Everywhere I look all I see are blanched bones
And a loud starvation that drowns out the cries of the holy

There's no shelter for me in the halls of the righteous
They're too busy anointing themselves in their finest

After all, they're gentlemen
They only kill by common consent
They are all gentlemen
They only kill by common consent

She stands like statue of a deer in the moonlight
Listening to the sound of a faraway band only she can hear
The wind pours down the canyons to the lakeshore
And the ancient trumpets cry

Mute applause and no perception
No perception of these mountains upon mountains
5. Affliction (9:49)
Oh, sweet God above, please take me home
Show me the mercy that he denied
I've paid my dues, and I've served my time
The shadow's haunting me the way it haunted him

He looked in my baby's eyes and he felt nothing then
He felt nothing then, and he feels nothing now
Not a day goes by that I don't think of him
I don't know what he suffered Lord, I don't know what he's seen

But he's spread his sadness like a disease
The shadow's haunting me the way it haunted him
He looked in my baby's eyes and he felt nothing then
He felt nothing then, and all I feel's anguish now

There's is a darkness born out of time
It creeps along the edge of our excess
Its hatred ripples in our fertile hearts
Like heat waves shimmering with their mirage
It gathers chessmen and loaded guns
It snuffs candles out one by one

Oh, sweet God above, please take me home
Show me the mercy that he denied
6. No Safe Harbor (12:34)
For you I would cross the glass oceans of green
Full of sights best unseen, and the worst kinds of dreams
For you I would pass through deserts of fire
Full of burning and ire, waterless and futile
For you I would brave the disgust of the mob
Walk completely alone, disavow all of them
For you I would give up mountains of gold
And possessions untold, health of body and of soul

But don't ask me to do what the strongest of men
Seeks to kill deep within, trembling sick to his bones
Don't ask me to do what the strongest of warriors
Backs up from the drawbridge and puts down her sword for
Don't ask me to feel the moon on the door
Or the fire on the shore as you bring my ship in

Because the truth is, there is no safe harbor
Because the truth is, there is no safe harbor anymore

The first time I saw you, I felt the knives set in
The first time I saw you, I felt my life cave in

A perfect mirror tells no lies
That's why I shattered you
The truest mirror in my life

A broken mirror cannot tell the truth
That's why I shattered you
I'll pick up shards for all my life
