Church bell pierce a Sunday silence
Stray stems puncture way concrete
You do nothing, but you're somehow tied
Another empty morning, time to get in off the street

Inside the lobby today, passers by in the halls above
Any one of them and you could love
But you never know, we're anonymous
I watch your face give away your feelings
Shapes your nerves like the waves on a reef
Dark surface spinning, pulsing, reeling
All up and around your hidden fears
The simple ordered rolls of paper trees
Escort your Amtrak retreat

Look again, they're not as simple as they may seem
Sunlight touches every leaf
Clouds closer to the earth seem to skim much faster across the sky
Just slipping away as the upper atmosphere is left behind
You try to follow them out of town, toward an afternoon among the tides
But the passengers push you to the end of the line and you're slow to your terrestrial strides

I feel faceless in a crowd of faces
Bitter for years, grand entrances unsung
You're most lonely in the crowded places
You skulk around like a silhouette in the sun
Can't you see your anxiety and solitude's synonymous?
Any one of us and you can love
But you'll never know we're anonymous

Clouds closer to the earth seem to skim much faster across the sky
Just slipping away as the upper atmosphere is left behind
You try to follow them out of town, toward an afternoon among the tides
But the passengers push you to the end of the line and you're slow to your terrestrial strides
