"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 CommentI think we're missing a big piece of the song here.
    These lines have not yet been addressed.

    "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"

    I've always seen these lines as being addressed to God. I think this is saying that God is always changing some things and keeping others constant and when we're going through difficult times it is hard to recognize or accept this.

    I think that the narrator is speaking to God in the last line as well. I think "To the woman you've turned red again" means that God has ended this relationship, making this woman single.
