Sufjan Stevens – Adlai Stevenson lyrics

Righteous men of the earth
Oh, have you been patient
I suppose our thoughts about United Nations

Adlai, Adlai
What did he say
And what is the answer?

1952, the heart was not your master
The accident you knew
Would carry with your laughter

Evidence, evidence
I've heard of it
And what is the answer?

Adlai, Adlai
What did he say
And what is the answer?
