"Sleeping Bear, Sault Saint Marie" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Oh Sleeping Bear!
Ran to the top and got scared
Of what I could see.

Oh Lamb of God!
Tell us your prefect design
And give us the rod.

Oh Sturgeon Bay!
Covered completely in sand
Completely in sun.

Oh Saint Marie!
Give up, the rocking boats drowned,
The captain is done.

    General CommentWhen I was younger, I ran to the top of the Sleeping Bear dunes and was so scared. It was way up over looking lake Michigan and freaked me out.

    I'll bet there is so much more story behind this than we'll ever know.
