    Sufjan Stevens – The Ascension [2020]

    Künstler:
    Sufjan Stevens

    [Verse 1]
    When I am dead and the light leaves my breast
    Nothing to be told, nothing to confess
    Let the record show what I couldn’t quite confess
    For by living for myself I was living for unrest
    Then the evidence came back in a chariot of vindication
    Something to behold, glorious in its path
    But the prophecy fell back as it gave to me an invitation
    Show them what is right, show them what is blessed

    [Chorus]
    But now it strikes me far too late again
    That I was asking far too much of everyone around me
    And now it strikes me far too late again
    That I should answer for myself as the Ascension falls upon me

    [Verse 2]
    So what should be said of a life that leaves its mess?
    For once your life was sold it could never be possessed
    You were selfishly as a continent, you were finally at your best
    For you favored for yourself when selfishness was blessed
    Then Cordelia came back in a chariot hallucination
    Something to rejoice, glorious in its wrath
    But the prophecy was a pantomime as it came to me in accusation
    Show them what is right, show them what is best

    [Chorus]
    But now it strikes me far too late again
    That I was asking far too much of everyone around me
    And now it strikes me far too late again
    That I should answer for myself as the Ascension falls upon me

    [Verse 3]
    And now it frightens me, the thought against my chest
    To think I was asking for a reason
    Explaining why everything’s a total mess
    And now it frightens me, the dreams that I possess
    To think I was acting like a believer
    When I was just angry and depressed

    And to everything, there is no meaning
    A season of pain and hopelessness
    I shouldn’t have looked for revelation

    I should have resigned myself to this
    I thought I could change the world around me
    I thought I could change the world for best
    I thought I was called in convocation
    I thought I was sanctified and blessed

    But now it strengthens me to know the truth at last
    That everything comes from consummation
    And everything comes with consequence
    And I did it all with exultation
    While you did it all with hopelessness
    Yes, I did it all with adoration
    While you killed it off with all of your holy mess

    What now? (What now?)
    (What now?)
    (What now?)
    (What now?)
    What now? (What now?)
    (What now?)
    (What now?)
    (What now?)
