"Michigan" as written by and Marcus Congleton....
Travel to seaside Michigan
Walk on the water with a friend
On a blue wave

I've been a real bad family man
Suckin' wine like Indians
On a mountain

But I'm gonna try
I'm gonna pave the way at night
Singin' the gospel in my mind
Walkin' on
Blue waves
Blue waves
Radiate and dry
All my life

Make me real life hurricane
Follow a straight line to brave
On a good day

You've been a teenage runaway
Carry the people that you hate
In a suitcase

Well I'm gonna try
I'm gonna pave the way at night
Nothin' but gospel in my mind
Walkin' on
Blue waves
Blue waves
Radiate and dry
All my life

    General CommentSomething about this song reminds me of Beautiful Way by Beck.
    At least, the singing. And the slide guitar.

    General CommentI think that the lyricist is illustrating his hypothetical suicide. The first indication of this is that the opening verses depict someone who is depressed. He then lists his flaws and promises that he's going to "fix" everything he'd done wrong. Then, the actual verse where he theoretically completes the deed is the one that starts, "But I'm gonna try / I'm gonna pave the way at night..." It says that he's praying ("singing gospels") and then he sounds relieved when he says, "Walking on blue waves," he is "out of his misery."

    I may be wrong on this, so if anyone has anything else: they might be right. This is just what I got out of it.
