Wake up, wake up, you sleepy red wolves
Your time has come to be altered in stars
From out of the red river you run
Wagging your tails with your backs to the bark

All the red stripes of the righteous will get you
Yours will be feathered and fallow unfarmed
All of your lives have been lifted in riches
Come to me, love to me, all my red stars

La la la la la . . .

Look up, look up, you sleeping horsemen
All the confinement that comes to your heads
From out of the rainbow we fall
Come to me, love to me, all my red stars

All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the red stars the impostor has lived in
Don't be afraid be of what you have given

La la la la la . . .

All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given
All the impossible shapes we live in
Don't be afraid be of what we are given

(Wide, sharp, different, impossible, slow, slow, slow, slow)

Wake up, wake up, you sleepy red wolves
Your time has come to be altered in song

    General CommentThis song is featured at the end of the DVD disc for Sufjan's "The B.Q.E." After the last track "Critical Mass," there is a sound & video collage featuring leftover photos & video clips. This song immediately follows the montage. You can hear the song here (as long as it's up): youtube.com/…
