    General CommentThis is quite possibly the best song ever written about Sufjan Stevens having an existential crisis in the Great Godfrey Maze. Bravo!

    General Comment"The Great Godfrey Maze" is, well, a maze built in a local cornfield each year. Godfrey is a small town in Madison County, Illinois, just north of Alton.

    General Commentdont call sufjan random. what i love about all his music, especially this album, is its personality. he obviously didnt just set out to be random. it has to do with him, and we happen to listen. why do you listen if its random?

    I LISTEN BECAUSE WHEN I DO, I FEEL LOVE, AND ITS ALMOST LIKE SENDING MY LOVE TO SUFJAN THROUGH MY SPEAKERS

    Actually, if you're out there Sufjan, can you let us know what you were talking about and lead us out of the dark? so many of us are in the dark...

    General Commentmy best guess at what sufjan is trying to do with this song is explain the times when he is confused about his purpose in the world. the drones in this song are chaotic and are a good representation of what would be going through someone's head if they're having an existential crisis, which means that for a short moment it feels like life has no purpose or meaning. we all know that sufjan is a very religious person, so this would be very scary and unnerving to someone of great faith.
