Moving with Sufjan Stevens

Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lakes State

An amazing find. Thanks to my buddy Troy Bronsink for leading me to this artist. Prophetic stuff. Beautifully haunting. Wow. Favorite track thus far is For the Widows in Paradise...

I have called you children, I have called you son.
What is there to answer if I'm the only one?
Morning comes in Paradise, morning comes in light.
Still I must obey, still I must invite.
If there's anything to say, if there's anything to do,
If there's any other way, I'll do anything for you.

I was dressed embarrassment.
I was dressed in wine.
If you had a part of me, will you take you're time?
Even if I come back, even if I die
Is there some idea to replace my life?
Like a father to impress;
Like a mother's mourning dress,
If you ever make a mess, I'll do anything for you

I have called you preacher; I have called you son.
If you have a father or if you haven't one,
I'll do anything for you.

I did everything for you.
