We Are What You Say
Sufjan Stevens Lyrics

We are a servant,
We have a song,
The side of a beehive,
A tabernacle choir.

We are the sound
Working in wars,
The bishop is gone
To the acolyte shores.

We save our bibles,
We pull our sleeves.
The word is a guard
And the guard is a cleave.

We are the right,
We are the stay,
The accolade's gone,
We are what you say.

We have no language,
We have no chore,
The side of a beehive,
The bride is a whore.

We are a spite,
We are at bay,
The spirit is life,
We are what you say.

We have a sermon,
We have a song,
The bishop is easy,
The bishop is wrong.

The spirit is right,
The spirit will say:
We are a light,
We are what you say.

and so begins my sufjan stevens marathon


This album would have been great if it had only had "We Are What You Say", "A Winner Needs a Wand", "Woodsworth's Ridge", "Rice Pudding", "A Loverless Bed (without remission)", "SuperSexyWoman", "Happy Birthday", "Kill", and "A Sun Came".


Going to have to strongly, but respectfully, disagree: “Demetrius”, “Dumb I Sound”, and “Leil” are some of my fav songs, so powerful and emotional, esp how the first two fuse together. “Dumb..” has been the theme song for my 20s & 30s.

And “Godzuki” leading into “SuperSexyWoman” is so cute and fuses the cheekiness into the song. And “Jason” and “Joy, Joy, Joy”! I understand but to me, it’s perfect.
