  6. "Anchor"

    –noun

    1. any of various devices dropped by a chain, cable, or rope to the bottom of a body of water for preventing or restricting the motion of a vessel or other floating object, typically having broad, hooklike arms that bury themselves in the bottom to provide a firm hold.

    2. any similar device for holding fast or checking motion: an anchor of stones.

    We all have some sort of anchor to keep us here and keep us sane.  Be that music, friends, family, or anything in between.  But what happens when the anchors are absent?  Everything crashes and burns.  Anxiety sets in and we lose all control.  We become our own worst enemy.  I, personally, am a prime example.  I like to write about these situations.  Be that a break up, a tragedy, becoming astray from God, and everything in between.  With that being said, the name Absent Are The Anchors means a lot to me on a very personal level.  I realize I’m not the most talented musician or writer alive, but if just one of our songs can reach out to someone on a deep and meaningful level, then I feel accomplished.  I LOVE music and everything that it stands for.  To all of you who have listened to our songs and taken something from one of them, thank you so much.  I love and appreciate you for your support.  We will keep writing, keep recording, and keep our heads up high.  We will make something of this band.  Believe that.

    When your anchors are absent, you realize just who you really are inside.  You see your vulnerability, your fears, and your true self surface.

    Adrift From The Tide - Absent Are The Anchors; Wreckage EP

    Lyrics:

    one more chance

    to tell the truth

    how can you lay claim

    to this throne

    with no structures

    you lose stability

    I know you like

    the back of my hand

    I can see depletion

    seeping through

    remorse, no remorse

    you’re nothing, no worth

    oh my, I wish you could see

    the damage you bring

    and oh my, I wish you knew

    the disdain I have for you

    I am a ship in a dark sea

    this compass has failed to guide me

    these words you breathe

    a breath of lies

    I see you

    for all that you are

    you’re nothing

    waves

    waves lead me astray

    and you are the storm

    my hope’s a casualty

    but your endeavors

    will not end well, dear

    beloved memories

    intent on tragedy

    I can see right through

    your hollowed eyes

    your hollowed eyes

    your bloodshot lies

    blatantly leading you

    blatantly leading you

    nowhere

    I am a ship in a dark sea

    this compass has failed to guide me

    these words you breathe

    a breath of lies

    I see you

    for all that you are

    you’re nothing
