Go out on the marshes
Pick the pieces up
They chopped him into
Little bits I gathered

Anoint yourself in myrrh and
Walking through serrated grasses
Close the gap that's come
Between us

Lord of love
Dead man
Resurrection
Twin sister
Empress
Crying Isis

Better call the priestess
Crack the cedar chest
Hook out his heart and
Wrap him in white linen

Jackal headed doctor
Cut the bandages
The queen is weeping
Tears into the river

Osiris

Pole the barge
Down the Nile
Through the papyrus
Attended by crocodiles

Sink into the silt
Come back again
Eternal life hangs on
The lightness of a feather

Wheel above the vultures
Winged scavengers
Trace hieroglyphs
The king is reassembled
