A World Without an Anchor

In a world without an anchor
we’re subject to the sea
Right before a tempest
Left screaming at the breeze
Walls of rage and water
will test what you have learned
In a world without an anchor
coins are tossed
and boats will burn
And there’ll be ships that lie deep in state beneath the reach
Who will wear a yellow life vest
and who will wash up on the beach?

In a world of flags and spices
playing pipes and drums
Trading on the winds
and selling souls and sums
Gold sailing one way
and silver in return
But in a world without an anchor
we’ll all drown in debt in turn
And there’ll be ships that lie deep in state beneath the reach
Who will wear a yellow vest
and who will wash up on the beach?
Who will wear a yellow vest
and who will wash up on the beach?

In a world of borrowed soldiers
captains’ damage owed
The treasure chests are missing
and the golden anchors sold
Now all fed with cake and follies
we are tethered to the shell
Bailing out the breaches
We’re now bailing in the hell
And there’ll be ships that lie deep in state beneath the reach
Who will wear a yellow vest and who will wash up on the beach?
Who will wear a yellow vest and who will wash up on the beach?
