You crossed an ocean
You faced a fear
You rode a coaster
But you didn't do it here

You see the great collecting sunsets
Driving tunnels in their cars
You see the other actors waiting
To take their cake in the dark

You know it's cruel, but you're careful

Anvil everything, your direction
Can this memory honor
Your heart concrete, up on dead feet
Watching flowers leaping from the ground

Even when your heart feels like a gift she gives
It isn't
It's one of a number of things performing a function in the body

Anvil everything, your direction
Can this memory honor

Even when the part you play feels given
It isn't
When nothing ever really happens

Anvil everything, your direction
Can this memory honor

    General CommentHere is what I hear after watching a few live videos.

    You crossed an ocean
    You faced a fear
    You rode a coaster
    But you didn't do it here

    You see the great collecting sunsets
    Driving tunnels in their cars
    You see the other actors waiting
    To take their cake in the dark

    You know it's cruel, but you're careful

    Anvil everything, your direction
    Can this memory honor (?)
    Your heart concrete up on dead feet
    Watching flowers leaping from the ground

    Even when your heart feels like a gift she gives
    It isn't.
    It's one of a number of things performing a function in your body

    Anvil everything, your direction
    Can this memory honor

    Even when the part you play feels given
    It isn't.
    When nothing ever really happens

    Anvil everything, your direction
    Can this memory honor
