* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vz0ULXSsi_Q "Culling of the Fold"]] deserves a special mention, but "The Mariner's Revenge", "Cautionary Song", and "Odalisque" are all up there too.

** "The Chimbley Sweep". It could be about male prostitution[[hottip:* :possibly of the child sort, given that the widow addresses him as "urchin"]], or it could be about the much-less-risque chimney sweeping, which is potent nightmare fuel all on its own. Chimney sweeping was an incredibly cruel form of child labor that lead to many if not most sweeps developing black lung by the time they reached adulthood. Besides black lung, the profession put sweeps at risk for various cancers (not just of the lungs) and a number of other medical conditions that are high nightmare fuel in their own right. And then there was always the chance of falling and breaking your neck...
