Adlai Stevenson lyrics

(Sufjan Stevens feat. Rosie Thomas / The Avalanche LP)

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

Sufjan & Rosie:
Adlai, Adlai
What did he say
And what is the answer
Adlai, Adlai
What did he say
And what is the answer

1952, the heart was not your master
The accident you were through
Would carry through your laughter

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

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