I am an anchor at the bottom of a lake longing for the ship from which I break
I won’t let nobody down, no, I won’t keep nobody grounded
You walked around and you planted seeds,
your kingdom came up from among the weeds
and the men all cried while staring at the trees
saying, “what are we supposed to see?”

Well, I say you’ll see freedom.
Stop looking at the ground, start looking at the leaves
up among the dirt and rust is where the kingdom breathes
you’ll see freedom

When we finally left that town, we had put all our stones down and you drew lines in the middle of the street (redefined the place we meet)
if they come to meet us there, we’ll turn all of their swords to plowshares and sow the earth with diligence and love (must’ve come from heaven above)

We will sow the earth with diligence and love
it won’t matter anymore where you came from!
