Official lyrics out now. Some of these are wrong....
And all that I've known to be of life
And I am gentle
You ran off with it all
And I am faithful
And all that I felt within my arms
And I am weightless
You ran off with it all
And I am speechless
And all that I've said to get it right
And I am confident
You ran off with it all
And I am steadfast
And all that I thought to be precise
And I am consequence
You ran off with it all
And I am sorry

And I am sorry
And all that I've known to be at peace
And I am desperate
You ran off with it all
And I am restless
And all that I've known to be of love
And I am gentle
You ran off with it all
And I am desperate
And all that I dream
Where do you run, where do you run to?
And I'm evidence
And all that I dream
Where do you run, where do you run to?
And I am faithless
And all that I dream
Where do you run, where do you run to?
And now I am messed up
And all that I dream
Where do you run, where do you run to?
Carrier, friend
Where do you run?

    General CommentI think it's 'mercurial friends' rather than 'carry on friends'?

    General CommentMercury is god of wealth and fortune; he is also messenger of god and is super fast. Sufjan is pleading with Mercury to bring him fortune but he keeps running away and he can't get the break he needs
