Sufjan Stevens – A Loverless Bed (Without Remission) Lyrics 7 years ago
I think when he's saying put the axle on and roll again in relation to him not being able to get over it, is that he feels as if he can't get over it. But he has to. He can't just wallow and be sad about it. He's moving on, but deep down he still wants everything to go back to the way it was.

The way i see this song is that he's getting flashbacks and looking at memories of times with this person, but when he says put the axle on a roll again he's snapping back into reality. And as good it feels to get lost in old memories of this person, he needs to live his life and roll on.
