"Pickeral Lake" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
I wasn't willing
To fight on the floor
Throwing the chairs
Through the door

I wasn't willing
To fight on the floor
Something to say to the poor

The storms in July
Took off the trees
Took off the place to be
The animals died
Once in a while
Once in a while

I wasn't willing
To make up the bed
Folding the sheets to your half
I wasnt willing
To say it again
Waiting for things to begin

The storms in July
Took off the trees
Took off the place to be
The animals died
Once in a while
Once in a while

La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la

    My Opiniondoes no one else think this has to do with some kind of abusive relationship, and how the ..persona.. wasn't willing to be part of it..? i thought this cause it's reinforced by the fallacy that it's stormy weather, showing the persona's mood... i may be completely wrong but i certainly don't think this is a meaningless song as others suggest.
