Patricia Holland-Moritz, whose images we see on today’s video, wrote poetry to go with the release–the CD jacket for the release includes words from the poem:

music for the dead

god is in trouble
death lost its threat
sleep´s brother a sissy
unable
to keep its disciples
under control

god is in trouble
his heaven no challenge
anymore
heaven and hell
two of the same kind
as promised land

god is in trouble
since that one day
when light and dark
became one

In addition to the music created for the audio release, Sean released a series of videos. Using a different soundtrack for each video, the sounds are much different from the music on the release–a sort of theme (audio release) with variations (video release).
