Prairie Fire That Wanders About

from by Sufjan Stevens

lyrics

Peoria! Destroy-a!
Infinity! Divinity!

For Lydia Octavia!
And Jack-of-Trades!
The Cubs hooray!

The Opera House
Where Emma sang!
America! Oh will it play?

And Santa Claus!
The Great Parade!
Peoria!
You have it made!

Into the crossfire
Faithfully run
Middle America,
One on one
Peoria!
We saddle the fun times

Sufjan Stevens Brooklyn, New York

Sufjan Stevens mixes autobiography, religious fantasy, and regional history to create folk songs of grand proportions. More recently, Sufjan released two albums in 2010: a generous EP (All Delighted People) and the full length The Age of Adz, a collection of songs partly inspired by the outsider artist Royal Robertson.

Sufjan currently lives in New York City.
