The Lord God Bird



In the delta sun, down in Arkansas
It's the great god bird with its altar call
And the sewing machine, the industrial god
On the great bayou were they saw it fall
It's the great god bird down in Arkansas
And the hunters beware, or the fishers fall
And paradise might close from its safe flight flawed
It's the great god bird through it all


And the watchers beware, lest they see it fall
And paradise might laugh when at last it falls
And the sewing machine, the industrial god
It's the great god bird with it's altar call
Yes, it's the great god bird with its altar call
Yes, it's the great god bird through it all 



"The Lord God Bird" by Sufjan Stevens, one of my favorite songs. Beautiful photography by Anna Aden.
