Sufjan Stevens – Age Of Adz lyrics

[Intro]
Oh, oh, it rots
Oh, oh, it rots
Oh, oh, it rots

[Verse 1]
Well I have known you
For just a little while

But I feel I've known you
I feel I've seen you
When the Earth was split in fives

And in your words, I
Should let it out, I
Would see it die

But I'm a watcher
I see it watch her
It's in your afterlife

This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living

Oh, keep from trying
Oh, keep from caring
You are the life

We see you trying to
Be something else that
You're not, we think you're nice

The circumstances
Of what I thought, I
Could see it now

I wouldn't be so
I wouldn't feel so
But it's a running wild

This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living

[Chorus]
When it dies, when it dies
It rots
And when it lives, when it lives
It gives it all it gots
This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living
Oh, oh, it rots
Oh, oh, it gives it all it gots
This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living

[Verse 2]
And all reflections
I see your method
I see it all

And what about you?
And what about me?
Are we the lost of lost?

Don't speak to soon, don't
Be fruit o' loom, don't
Excite yourself

For what you see is
Not fantasy, it's
Not what it gets, but gives

This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living

And all reflections
I see it mentioned
I see it all

The gorgeous mess of
Your face impressed us
Imposed in all its art

This is the Age of Adz
Eternal living

[Chorus]

[Verse 3 - Each stanza two times]
When I die, when I die
I'll rot
But when I live, when I live
I'll give it all I've got

Gloria, Gloria
It rots
Victoria, Victoria
It lives in all of us

I've lost the will to fight
I was not made for life

[Outro]
Now I have known you
For just a little while

I feel I must be
Wearing my welcome
I must be moving on

For my intentions
Were good intentions
I could have loved you
I could have changed you

I wouldn't be so
I wouldn't feel so
Consumed by selfish thoughts

I'm sorry if I
Seem self-effacing
Consumed by selfish thoughts

It's only that I
Still love you deeply
It's all the love I got
