"Anchors" as written by and Joel Fletcher Birch Trad M Nathan....
I have so many anchors
So many, so many
So many anchors
Far too many to be sailing on these seas
They're pulling me under
And I just want to be freed
But I'm just drowning and clasping

To the tinder and twine
Not the firm planks and rope
That I know to be mine
That I know to be mine
I have so many anchors
Bound to my feet
It feels like I'll forever be bound
To the bottom of these seas

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

There are sirens watching me
And they whisper and smile to me
And I'm screaming out to them
Please take these anchors from my feet
Oh

I see the moon up above
I've failed my hope
I've thrown out my love
I still want to live
I still want to hope
I still want to give
I still want to grow
I was dead and gone
I was cold and alone
I was weighed down and buried
When will I find my way home?

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

Let's get it
When will I find my way home?
Let's get it
When will I find my way home?

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out toward the sky
When will I find my way home?

    General Commentwow. first comment; surprising.
    okay, i think this song is about how the anchors are pulling him down so to speak- like, hes being dragged down by bad mistakes and wrong turns in his life; thus the first verse of the song:
    "i have so many anchors
    so many, so many
    (so many anchors)
    far too many to be sailing on these seas
    (they're pulling me under
    and i just want to be freed
    but i'm just drowning and clasping)
    to the tinder and twine
    not the firm planks and rope
    that i know to be mine
    that i know to be mine"

    awesome song, i have to say :D
