Sufjan Stevens - The Seer's Tower

In the tower above the earth,
There is a view that reaches far
Where we see the universe,
I see the fire, I see the end.

Seven miles above the earth,
There is Emmanuel of mothers.
With his sword, with his robe,
He comes dividing man from brothers.

In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel.
In the powers of the earth, we wait until it rips and rips.
In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel.
Oh my mother, she betrayed us, but my father loved and bathed us.

Still I go to the deepest grave,
Where I go to sleep alone

The nineteenth song on Sufjan’s "Illinois", "The Seer’s Tower" explores Christian themes of the Apocalypse, similar to the title track of "Seven Swans", another of Sufjan’s albums.
