"A Loverless Bed (Without Remission)" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Such a shame that I can't get over this;
Put the axle on and roll again.

Such a Saturn eye will close again;
Watching every ring turning again.

And I close my eyes
To everything you've rearranged.
And I close my mind
To everything you've kept the same.
Put the axle on and roll again.

Cannot keep you in my bed again;
Wake up every time, leave your space again.

When the hairline breaks and leands you in
To the woman you've turned red again.

    General CommentSaturn was a god in Roman mythology which was derived from the greek deity Cronus. In Roman mythology Saturn devours his children once they are born to prevent a prophesy that one would one day overthrow him and rule the universe.

    A "Saturn eye" could be a reference to the famous painting of Saturn savagly devouring one of his offspring. In the painting the eyes are large and white, bulging out in his madness and selfish ambition.
