The Seer's Tower Lyrics

2024 Broadway
Illinoise the Musical - The Seer's Tower Lyrics


The song is written by Sufjan Stevens.

In the tower above the earth,
There is a view that reaches far
Where we see the universe,
I see the fire, I see the end.

Seven miles above the earth,
There is Emmanuel of mothers.
With his sword, with his robe,
He comes dividing man from brothers.

In the tower above the earth,
We built it for Emmanuel.
In the powers of the earth,
We wait until it rips and rips.
In the tower above the earth,
We built it for Emmanuel.
Oh my mother, she betrayed us,
But my father loved and bathed us.

Still I go to the deepest grave,
Where I go to sleep alone
