"Pluto" as written by and Sufjan Stevens Nico Muhly....
Jupiter, bad June
You know my arms ache
And I’ve organized my face

Sweet sun sister, moon
Seasons have shown
How your providence takes shape

My little eye shadow
Bruised by the moon's paddle
Lipstick eyeliner replaced

Charon, the fog lifted
Messenger dwarfism
Let’s leave evidence to rest

Pluto, silly goose
Why did you hide
Behind covenants of shame?

Smooth and splendid abuse
Won’t you tell me
How to deal with my own?

Sworn by Persephone
How melancholy
She waits forever in your kiss

Loneliest passageway
Orbiting castaway
Beat your beauty at your breast

Don’t surprise me
You monster, you mastery
Make your very last request

    My InterpretationThe song is a mix of Roman mythology and astronomic information about Pluto. "Jupiter bad June" (My favorite part in whole song) could refer to the fact that Jupiter has married with his own sister, Juno. Jupiter is also the brother of Pluto in the Roman mythology.
    "Charon, the fog lifted/ Messenger dwarfism", Charon is the name of the biggest moon in Pluto, it has half of size of the planet. And Pluto is known for being a dwarf planet.
    Sworn by Persephone/ Our melancholy/ She waits forever in your kiss - Persephone in Roman mithology is the Pluto's wife that was kidnapped.
    The rest of the song I have no idea what is it about :], that's my opinion, I can be totally wrong.
