I've been here almost all my years
and all these roads lead back to here
So no-one seems to be aware
This anchor won’t hold me forever

Though this is where I was founded
I began to feel surrounded
Beaten up and shaken down
This anchor holds me to the ground
I was weak but getting stronger
I won’t stay here any longer
when I'm gone then
I'll be gone forever...forever

Its no wonder I feel uneasy
This place I fell won’t release me
Shows me hope but just to tease me
I won’t fall down on my knees
When I'm home from my 9 to 5
Music keeps my soul alive
if I stay here all hope dies
Can't you see the truth in my eyes?

It seems I've spent my life in jail
Now I'm goin' off the rails
This boat is ready let's set sail
This anchor won’t hold me forever
I've dreamed it, I've seen it
This freedom, I've been it
This anchor forsakes me
but it will never break me

I've been here almost all my years
ow at last it all seems clear
I've cut the chains, faced the fear
This anchor won’t hold me again

I wont fall down on my knee
