13. Sufjan Stevens, "Rake" (2000)

While it's open to interpretation, I think "Rake" is about the security you can find in another person.

Sufjan's strange lyrics convey the need for someone you don't have to front for β€” someone you can take solace with when the outside world becomes too much.

While "the rock" invokes stability, the titular "rake" can be that which removes you from a bad situation.
