"Demetrius" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Reach for the archer.
He chose an offer.

You are only a redeemer.
You are holy, like Demetrius.

Change the hoodoo caper;
Strange impersonator.
Make a multi-tracker.
Take your book and back her.

You are like that, a redeemer.
You are like that, like Demetrius.

    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.

    Demetrius: reach for the archer. He chose an offer. You are only a redeemer. You are holy, like Demetrius. Change the hoodoo caper; strange impersonator. Make a multi-tracker. Take your book and back her. You are like that, a redeemer. You are like that, like Demetrius.
