"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 CommentHere are the exact lyrics for this song, transcribed from Sufjan's handwriting in the first pressing of the album. The lyrics are originally written without line breaks.

    A loverless bed (without remission): 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 and leave your space again. When the hairline breaks and lends you into the woman you've turned red again.
