Anthology - Thrice Cover




Acoustic cover - Anthology by Thrice


This song is amazing on a couple different levels. First, it's just a beautiful song. Second, It's called "Anthology" because every line is an allusion to another one of their songs, so for someone like me who has loved Thrice since their beginnings, listening to this song is like a high speed roller coaster through some of my favorite moments of their musical career. Third, even though you get the sense (especially from the context of the many easter eggs) that it is more of a love song, you get the sense it was left sort of intentionally ambiguous whether this is a song Dustin wrote to his wife or to God, or more than likely both. Whenever I sing it, it's directed toward God—that's just how it feels right in my mind. Let me know your thoughts on it, and enjoy!



Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

Our life's built of tin cans and string

But the cornerstone laid is a wondrous and beautiful thing

Sure in the ground

And while the north wind has taken its toll

You have helped me to find my way back and to anchor my soul

Safe in the sound

[Chorus]

Oh, you know me

Oh, and I know you

And I know that

We can see this through

[Verse 2]

I bragged of baring my bones

Said if we heard the howling I'd run out to face it alone

To meet it halfway

But I've still got badges to earn

So keep sifting my soul cause I think that I'm starting to learn

To love you that way

[Chorus]

Oh, you know me

Oh, and I know you

And I know that

We can see this through

[Bridge]

It's true that you could snap my neck But I trust you'll save my life instead Cause our love is a loyalty sworn If we hold to our hope Then I know we can weather the storm Whatever they say Come what may

[Chorus] Oh you know me Oh and I know you And I know that We can see this through
