"Lazarus" as written by and Steven/balch Wilson....
As the cheerless towns pass my window
I can see a washed out moon through the fog
And then a voice inside my head breaks the analogue
And says

Follow me down to the valley below
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

I survived against the will of my twisted folk
But in the deafness of my world the silence broke
And said

Follow me down to the valley below
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
Follow me down to the valley below
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

My David don't you worry
This cold world is not for you
So rest your head upon me
I have strength to carry you

(Ghosts of the twenties rising)
(Golden summers just holding you)

Follow me down to the valley below
(Follow me follow me down)
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
Follow me down to the valley below
(Follow me follow me down)
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

Come to us, Lazarus
It's time for you to go

    My InterpretationIn a combonation of a few other interpretations, I think this song is in the second person, between the perspectives of a dead mother's ghost and her still-living son. He's sitting on a train, leaving where he's from, and his mother's ghost comes and tells him to follow her. He is living a life that is not cool at all (See: Shallow), and has reached a point of reflection. She is there to help him become more normal, or, more "human".
    Hope you liked it!
