don't make a sound
it's time to throw it into lockdown
watch me knock down this mess that i got myself into
for a small commission i'll show you how
if you just get off the ground
you gotta move a little faster
faster make it out of this disaster before you get factored out

turn, turn the page
another line i should have saved
but who's to say that you would've been blown away
cause you've always been blown away

anchor come and drag me down
before i take a dive
(i'll take what i can't get)
leave me for dead i've always said you'd find me in over my head
now you can take it literal instead
so now i'm bringing it back
(i'll take what i cant get)
anchor drag me down before i take the dive

call off the search
there's been no sign for days and there's no way to save the shore
if less is more
i'm sweating up a fever that's been spreading on the dance floor
pick your feet up off the ground
you gotta move a little faster
faster to make it out of this disaster
on your last hope when you fall to your knees

turn, turn the page
another line i should have saved
but who's to say that you would've been blown away
cause you've always been blown away

anchor come and drag me down
before i take a dive
(i'll take what i can't get)
leave me for dead i've always said you'd find me in over my head
now you can take it literal instead
so now i'm bringing it back
(i'll take what i cant get)
anchor drag me down before i take the dive

at first let the weight of all this pressure i was fine
but now i feel like i have buried myself alive

drag me out and push me down
but hurry up before the surface freezes over now
i'm gonna go
i'm going down without a sound

anchor come and drag me down (4x)
before i take the dive

anchor come and drag me down
before i take a dive
(i'll take what i can't get)
leave me for dead i've always said you'd find me in over my head
now you can take it literal instead
so now i'm bringing it back
(i'll take what i cant get)
anchor drag me down before i take the dive

before i take the dive
(i'll take what i can't get)
anchor drag me down before i take the dive

    Lyric CorrectionDon't make a sound.
    It's time to throw it into lock down.
    Watch me knock down this mess that I got myself into.
    For a small commission I'll show you how.
    If you just get off the ground.
    You gotta move a little faster.
    Faster, make it out of this disaster before you get factored out.

    Another life I should have saved
    But who's to say that you would've been blown away
    Cause you've always been blown away

    Anchor come and drag me down

    (I'll take what I can't get)
    Leave me for dead I've always said you'd find me in over my head
    Now you can take it literal instead
    So now I'm bringing it back

    There's been no sign for days and there's no way to save the shore
    If less is more
    I'm sweating up a fever that's been spreading on the dance floor
    Pick your feet up off the ground,
    You gotta move a little faster
    Faster, to make it out of this disaster
    On your last hope when you fall to your knees

    General Commentoh crap, i copy pasted the wrong line from your text. anyway, i meant to say that the one that's posted was already correct. it's "another line i should have saved". makes more sense in the context of the previous lines

    General CommentIt's "At first WITH the weight of all this pressure I was fine"
    Not "let." That doesn't even make sense, lol.

    General Comment"there's been no sign for days and there's no way to save the shore"

    should be: "There's been no sign for days and there's now way to say for sure"


    this is by far one of the their best songs... so catchy, so upbeat, just makes you wanna mosh. :)
