Track Name: The Majesty of the Flesh
Oh, the majesty of the flesh
The blood from the bitten lip
It’s real, it feels, there is life in it
Take a chance and break the glass
Take a chance and break the glass

Out in the woods in the heart of the night
Giving names to the stars in the sky
We ran in the nude
Barbarian mood!
What else can you do with your life?
What else can you do with your life?

Write on the wall “There is joy in it all!”
I’ve forgotten to tell all my friends
Scream in the hall, “This is life after all!”
May our voices never end!

Oh, the majesty of the flesh
I feel it in my fingertips
When I break my heart, when I hold my breath
When I die a little death
When I die a little death

Write on the wall “There is joy in it all!”
I’ve forgotten to tell all my friends
Scream in the hall, “This is life after all!”
May our voices never end!

Write on the wall “There is joy in it all!”
I’ve forgotten to tell all my friends
Scream in the hall, “This is life after all!”
May our voices never end!

Oh, the majesty of the flesh
I know it’s so complicated
It’s an idol we made, a glorious mess
Who can save us from this body of death?
Who can save us from this body of death?

Write on the wall “There is joy in it all!”
I’ve forgotten to tell all my friends
Scream in the hall, “This is life after all!”
May our voices never end!
May our voices never end!
May our voices never end!
Track Name: I Am My Beloved
I saw your body rise above the shore
I saw your body arched above the floor
What joy
What joy

There’s a black leather couch,
All tufted, worn out
In the sunlight, it’s warm
To the touch of your mouth
There’s a picture in green
Above an old mantelpiece
Nobody knows the secrets we keep
What joy
What joy

I followed your life line right across your palm
You drank the white wine
I sang from the Book of Psalms
What joy
What joy

All the memories came back
At the sound of a laugh
That came from the room
With the curtains all black
Sickle and hammer
Megaphone on the banner
I tore off the patch
That was sewn on the back
And we married too soon
Couldn’t wait until June
Found religion and love
All in one afternoon
On the side of a mountain,
In front of a fountain
The pistil is brittle, the sepal all bruised
What joy
What joy
What joy
Track Name: Nice Touch
They say that smiling is a nice touch
They say a lapel pin is a nice touch
They say that yelling is a nice touch
‘Cos when you yell you don’t say much
And when you yell you really look tough

They say that a slogan is a nice touch
They say that anger is a nice touch
They say that panic is a nice touch
‘Cos when there’s panic they don’t see much
And when there’s panic they don’t need luck

But what do they know?
Maybe someone saw Olympia
What do they know?
Maybe someone heard Fur Alina
What do they know?
Maybe someone had a vision of God
What do they know?
Maybe I’m human, maybe I’m loved

They say that money is a nice touch
They say that outrage is a nice touch
They say a Bible is a nice touch
You don’t need to read it, it won’t mean much
You don’t need to read it, it’s just for looks

But what do they know?
Maybe someone saw Olympia
What do they know?
Maybe someone heard Fur Alina
What do they know?
Maybe someone had a vision of God
What do they know?
Maybe I’m human, maybe I’m loved

And there was evening, and there was morning
The first day, the first day

They say that a handshake is a nice touch
They say that a baby is a nice touch
They say that a parade is a nice touch
They say that balloons are a nice touch
They say that laughter is a nice touch
They say opinions are a nice touch
They say that mischief is a nice touch
They say that secrets are a nice touch
They say that a strong arm is a nice touch
They say a nice touch is a nice touch
Track Name: The Sound of the Orchestra
There’s a place in my bed
Where I lay my head
Where the sound of the orchestra, it can’t go on
It can’t go on
It’s a serious life, a serious life
I was just going to tear out my heart
In front of my wife
A serious life

Alleluia! Alleluia!
I’m scared for everyone I know
Is it real or just a show?

There’s a place in this town
Where we all stand around
And the sound of the orchestra, it can’t go on
It can’t go on
There’s a wonderful song
Where we all sing along
There’s a word I just can’t bring to mind
On the tip of my tongue
The tip of my tongue

Alleluia! Alleluia!
I’m scared for everyone I know
Is it real or just a show?
Alleluia! Alleluia!
I’m scared of everyone I know
As above, so below

There’s a language I learned
From the pages I turned
Now the sound of the orchestra, it can’t go on
It can’t go on
It’s a serious life, a serious life
I was just going to spill my guts
In front of my wife
A serious life

Alleluia! Alleluia!
I’m scared for everyone I know
Is it real or just a show?
Alleluia! Alleluia!
I’m scared of everyone I know
As above, so below

It can’t go on
It can’t go on
It can’t go on
It can’t go on
