Sufjan Stevens' "Seven Swans"

I just discovered that my copy* of Sufjan Stevens' "Seven Swans" is missing track 11, which is incidentally the title track. I just heard the song and freaked out**. This is like after twelve years of watching my version of "Star Wars" taped from Philly channel 17, seeing a whole 30 seconds missing from the trash compactor scene when it was re-released. Or like hearing "Wanna Be Startin' Something" without the multiple record skips (as a kid, I used to choreograph "Thriller" in my living room, accommodating for all the skips).

Here's the song:

*I know, can you believe with my love of Sufjan, I have a burned copy of "Seven Swans"?

**Also, the song is kind of creepy.
