I have tried to back down in the eyes of strangers they will
know my all
that my pride comes after a fall, a fall
so you begin to ask the questions to end questioning
why, the art is growing silent in my arms

It’s a long a way to the anchor
fathoms under water you are running out of breath to carry
your lungs are not ready
it’s not enough to save me
and you don’t have the strength of many

I denied, I smiled, I swallowed like a willing child
I saw you guessed but you could never save a sinking shipwreck
Don’t be upset, it’s just you haven’t worked it out yet
There’s still time just don’t be blameful if you don’t get mine

It’s a long a way to the anchor
fathoms under water
you are running out of tricks to tempt me
even if you move me
I’d still be a greedy little thing to have around and watch you drowning

Come home to me, I won’t be grateful but I will not leave your side
and I’ll be the anchor you have always known it’s me
so now you’ve won, just let the water fill your lungs
I’ll watch and pray cos everybody has to die someday
