Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois

from by Sufjan Stevens

supported by


When the revenant came down, we couldn’t imagine what it was
In the spirit of three stars the alien thing that took its form
Then to Lebanon, oh God
The flashing at night, the sirens grow and grow

Oh, history involved itself
Mysterious shade that took its form
Or what it was, incarnation, three stars
Delivering signs and dusting from their eyes


from Illinois, released July 5, 2005

Sufjan currently lives in New York City.
