"Marching Band" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
One dark day the trees began
A trumpet sound, trumpet sound
We sat listening patiently
The sky was near
And I felt a trembling motion
We ran out to see the future
From the ground, from the ground
From the ground, from the ground

People died and people risen everywhere
We held hands and made a circle
Quietly from the ground
Quietly from the ground
We returned and set the table by the door

    General CommentArchived from Sufjan's old site (via the internet archive): "This song evokes the same visionary environment of a song I had previously written, Seven Swans, the title track of a record that will be released by Sounds Familyre in the near future."
