Andrew Bird – Manifest Lyrics

Manifest Lyrics By Andrew Bird


I’m coming to the edge of the widest canyon, my companions dear
I started to question my manifest destiny, my claim to this frontier

I’m coming to the brink of a great disaster And this has to be near
The earth spinning faster
Whistles right past your whispers death in your ear
Don’t pretend you can’t hear
Don’t pretend you can’t …

I can hear their tendrils still digging
For everything that’s walked this earth once living
Then to be exhumed and burned to vapor
Can we save her?
Now she’s in the air
Radical and free
Neither here nor there
She’s obliged to no one
She’s obliged to no one, yeah , yeah

I’m coming to the edge of a rising ocean Such commotion and fear
Keepin’ all our eyes on, what’s on the horizon And all that we hold dear

I’m coming to the brink of a great disaster And this has to be near
Whistles right past your whispers death in your ear
Don’t pretend you can’t hear
Don’t pretend you can’t …

I can hear their tendrils still digging
For everything that’s walked this earth once living
Then to be exhumed and burned to vapor
Can we save her?
Now she’s in the air
Radical and free
Neither here nor there
She’s obliged to no one
She’s obliged to no one, ohh no
