We Tremble 02:51
we wither Your love endures we fall You stand forever the seas retreat, the mountains shake before You for this is the way that the Lord has made creator of all, Your innocent Son was slain this is the price that the Lord has paid we tremble
In Silence 01:46
Upper Room 02:00
The Screw-Up 03:34
At All 03:19
these evil days i find no pleasure in them my window watchers grow dim cause there is nothing here for me at all our fathers given to sleep processions wail in the streets and there is nothing here for them at all grasshoppers no longer stir faint grow the songs of the birds cause there is nothing here for us at all there's only You
Secret Name 04:38


This is more of a loose, crusty, and fun release than the past few in the Jay Tholen catalog. At least since The Usurper Must Die!!! Took some risks, used some oblique strategies, and had a generally good time while recording. Enjoy.


released August 3, 2011
