Song by Sufjan Stevens 

 Part I: "The Great Frontier" 

 I count the days the Great Frontier 
 Forgiving, faced the seventh year 
 I stand in awe of gratefulness 
 I can and call forgetfulness 

 And when I, and when I call 
 The Patient, the Patient fall 
 The Spirit, the Carpenter 
 Invites us to be with her 

 What have we become America? 
 Soldiers on the Great Frontier! 
 Carpenter and Soldier, one on one 
 It's the battle, volunteer! 

 Run from yourself, from your friends, from ya-- 
 Run for your life, for your friends, for ya-- 
 American, merica, meri-- 
 Oh Illinois, Illinois, Illi-- 

 The prairie, the frontier, the perfect farm, it's from here 
 The fortress, the faker, the cornerstone, the baker 
 The dancer, the fisher, audition and the disher 
 The boxer, the fetcher, the ghweing gum, dream catcher 

 I count the days the Great Frontier 
 Forgiving, faced the seventh year 
 I stand and strain to make ends meet 
 Five Spirits on the Grand Marquee 

 And when I, and when I call 
 The Patient, the Patient fall 
 The Spirit, the Carpenter 
 Invites us to be with her 

 There was a man at the wall 
 He was grateful for us all 
  
 I saw the Wise Woman sing 
 She wasn't asking anything 
 She wasn't asking anything 
 How she made the nations sing! 

 What have we become America? 
 Soldiers on the Great Frontier! 

 Run from yourself, 
 from your friends, from ya-- 
 Run for your life, 
 for your friends, for ya-- 
 American, merica, meri-- 
 Oh Illinois, Illinois, Illi-- 

 The mattress, the floozies, the actress at the movies 
 The lantern, the lotion, the wind that wakes the ocean 
 The Standard Edition, the architect's rendition 
 The fashion, the fevers, the house we got at Sears 

 Part II: "Come to Me Only With Playthings Now" 

 Oh Great Fire of Great Disaster 
 Oh Great Heaven, oh Great Master 
 Oh Great Goat, the curse you gave us 
 Oh Great Ghost, protect and save us 
 Oh Great River, green with envy 
 Oh Jane Addams, spirit send thee 
 Oh Great Trumpet and the singers 
 (Given what you lost are you better off?) 
 Oh Great Goodman, King of Swingers 
 (Given what you had, has it made you mad?) 
 Oh Great Bears and Bulls, Joe Jackson 
 (Celebrate the few. Celebrate the new.) 
 Oh Great Illinois 
 (It can only start with you)
