Strip to the waist, we fall into the river. Cover your eyes, so you don’t know the secret. Yes, since we found out, since we found out, that anything could happen. Anything could happen. Anything could happen.
When I watch that, it’s like I never want to sit down again. I never want to do anything that doesn’t involve hunger and ache. You feel like you never want to be complacent or smug or entitled, and you want to ask and demand - not only of yourself but of the audience - to try harder, to feel more, to be bolder, to participate.
