Detroit Lift Up Your Weary Head!
by Sufjan Stevens

Once a great place. Now a prison
All I can say. All I can do
People Mover: Bad Decision
From suburban. Now a prison
All I can say. All I can do

From the trembling walls. It's a great idea!
Everything you want. It's a great idea!

Once a great place. Now a prison
All I can say. All I can do

Henry Ford. Henry Ford
Public Trans. Public Trans
Pontiac. Pontiac
Feed the poor. Feed the poor
City Hall. City Hall
Windsor Park. Windsor Park
Saginaw. Saginaw
After dark. After dark
Tigers game. Tigers game
Eighty-four. Eighty-four
Industry. Industry
Unemployed. Unemployed
Gun control. Gun control
Wolverine. Wolverine
Iroquois. Iroquois
Industry. Industry
Public Trans. Public Trans
Auto Cars. Auto Cars
Jefferson. Jefferson
Michigan. Michigan

From the trembling walls. It's a great idea!
Everything you want. It's a great idea!
From the Renaissance. It's a great idea!
Everything you want. It's a great idea!
Throw them all away. It's a great idea!
From the Renaissance. It's a great idea!
Everything you want
(Hesitate to burn the buildings)
