Anchors

lyrics

The anchors hold me, but their grip, is not enough
They drag me down, too weightless to brave the storm

"Save your breath for the sea, gather all you can
Break the skin, and descend, into the dark"

My lungs are too small to carry me where
The depths embrace my chest
And the silence calls out my name
To know the taste of its blue love

The Earth laid bare underneath blankets of cold
Lighted only by the death that holds me here

"Save your breath for the sea, gather all you can
Break the skin, and descend, into the dark"

"Oh, save your breath for the sea"
Softly they sing
Their melody breaks my will
As they mark me for death

Their design brings me into the black
I feel the weight hem me in
Relentless in their indifference
They rip me to shards innumerable

Oh the fires pour into my lungs
Carving their shape out from my chest
And I sink into the heart of the Earth
As my bones and my thoughts become one

All I’ve ever known is within this shroud
When all I wanted was a way out
