This album is the product of nearly a year and a half of highly emotional, passionate songwriting. It was made with our blood, sweat, and tears in Derek's house. This is who we are; We are The Anchorage

THE ANCHORAGE would like to thank:
Scott Inkley & Dylan Cox for your years with this band and helping us start so strong. John Hoang for your support and help while we searched for a bass player, Samantha Stott, Kevin Vorkink, Grant Miller, and Evan Wharton for filling in for us. Show Me Island, The Sinisters, Bombshell Academy, 2-1/2 White Guys, and so many more local bands for your support. Be Like Max, The Last Slice, The A-Oks, Survay Says!, and many more out-of-owners for giving us hope for ska as we know it and the ever-awesome national ska scene. Joel Pack/Broke City and Nate Baldwin/Eli Whitney for your generosity in letting us borrow your vehicles so we could experience life on the road. Lastly, a very special thanks to Carrie Smith, Lisa Nottingham, Bill Zierle, Eran Bair, and Megan Durning for your generosity.

To everyone who has helped us experience this wonderful journey, we cannot thank you enough. We've had opportunities greater than we could have ever imagined and we owe it to your incredible support. If you have ever seen us live, if you have ever listened to our music, if you have ever stuck one of our stickers on something you cared about, or worn one of our shirts, or liked one of our stupid pictures on Facebook, or showed your support in some other random way, or if you are reading this; thank you. We couldn't have done it without you.

Track Name: 0:36
A spark starts to rip apart my scenery in the dark
Soon this fire will consume all I’ve known
But when this body burns it will regrow again...
Track Name: Awaken
In the light it feels so right to rise into a new view
Rebuild how things seem to reframe the schemes
And awaken from a dream where my world is the only scenery
Hold to a new reality to actually breathe

Can you ever see the gift of confusion
Do you ever see through all our illusions

So you can see that our minds are set free
And this pain that we feel can be relieved

In the dark a pain cut sharp to mark a plot from the start
Respark how things seem to reframe the theme
Awaken from a dream where your world is the only scenery
Break free from old realities to actually breathe

Can you ever see the gift of confusion
Do you ever see through all our illusions

So you can see that our minds are set free
And this pain that we feel can be relieved

I try to crawl but I can only run
My mind creates itself up like the rising sun
I try to rise but I can only fall
My mind destroys itself down like the sun
Until I try to crawl
So I’ll dig another hole and fill it back up
With all the ashes I trust to be here when I burn
And return completely

So I can see that my mind is set free
And this pain that I feel can be and will be relieved
As soon as I believe, not when I want to stop feeling everything
That opens up my mind’s eye to its own design
Track Name: Break Free
Leave yourself behind at the door
You won’t need it anymore
They’ve got all you need in there
Trust in them do not question it, dear
Well if you want to be arrogant
Listen to this wisdom that they bent
If you want to be ignorant
Do it over and over and once again

Break free from what they say
None of it is true anyway
You fool yourself by listening
While blindly believing anything

So pick yourself up front at the door
You will need to show them more
Then they can see you need to speak
To set them free from an old belief

Break free from their hell
The trees they breathe have all been felled
Deep below to their roots
And set on fire from a cold abuse

Welcome home to where we all
Are caving in to who we choose to be
Weaving through what we believe
And breathing in everything
Between the scenes and dreams
We design and align with all of our time
Tear down the walls to see what they’ve comprised
Track Name: Lost In Lies
Who am I to tell you who you are
We’re here again when will this end
When it does, must it all start up again
Down in flames we go
Right along with everything we know
Too many questions in too many directions
How will the truth be shown

Once I said don’t let your own reflection set you back
Take this moment to relax

And we should know by now
That we could be proud of what we tricked ourselves into
Or look inside our eyes
And find the lies that show through our pride

Do we deserve to be seen in these flickering lights
Catching on fire to ignite a new life
Up and change we go
Right along with everything we know
So many answers from too many directions
How will the truth be shown

Once I said don’t let your own reflection make you fear
The end that seems so far, too near

And I should know by now
That I could be proud of what I tricked myself into
Or look inside my eyes and find the lies that show through
The darkness I feel
When the deal is to give up all I have
To learn from the past and move on
Finally let it go at last

Now peel back the lies
I comprised from this pride I dance around
Yeah I dance around it

And we should know by now
That we could be proud of what we tricked ourselves into
Or look inside our eyes
And find the lies that show through
Track Name: Say Goodbye
Now I know you don’t want to be abused anymore
Can you forget about all those things they did
And melt away these painful sores

Holding on with all you have to a new beginning
At the start of your very own ending

Say goodbye to all the people who absorb your life
Find the ones who run to you when you’re locked inside

You can do anything when you are in your right mind
So set your goals ahead and focus on them with your time

Holding on with all you have to a new beginning
At the start of your very own ending

Say goodbye to all the people who absorb your life
Find the ones who run to you when you’re locked in
Say goodbye to all the people who absorb your life
Find the ones who run to you when you’re locked inside

I thought I lost everyone I knew
But now the truth is coming through
I have myself even in the darkest days
I am here to stay

Say goodbye to all the people who absorb your life
Find the ones who run to you when you’re locked in
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: Deep Sleep
Dug deep in my sleep
I told a man that this is a dream
Then he called me a freak

It’s quite a mystery
When reality is closer than it seems
I’ve been here before there must be more than what I see
When I look inside into his eyes and see me
Right where he is supposed to be

This man and I can see right through my eyes
Into the doubt that keeps the truth locked inside
But I will not be bribed or told to fix my mind
I know that I am in a dream of mine

How could I be so blind
Overcomplicating all the truth I find
A projection of thought has got me caught for the last time
In this moment I can see into his eyes
And set aside the truth from the lies

This man and I can see right through my eyes
Into the doubt that keeps the truth locked inside
But I will not be bribed or told to fix my mind
I know that I am in a dream

I thought this wouldn’t happen
But it did over and over again
I thought this wouldn’t happen
But it did, ohh…
I thought this wouldn’t happen
But it did over and over again
I thought this couldn’t happen
But it did, ohh…

Déjà vu I knew I would see you again my friend
Will you open up the doors and let the light in

Wide awake in my sleep
I told a man that this is a dream...
Track Name: 0:40
A drop sinks and soaks the site
The ash that fell absorbs the light
Soon this forest will regrow again
And through this death life wins in the end
Track Name: Manipulation
Stop looking at me as if I am a projection of your mind
I have my own design
And if it’s not clear enough for you to see
The illusion is that I am what you made me out to be

Oh my dear you’ve got me all wrong

Why are you looking at me like that?
It drowns me in doubt and you’ve been telling me how to act
Well maybe I would do exactly as you wish
If I was your clone and kept my mouth stitched

You only see me in your view but when I’m gone I carry on
I don’t just fade away in the back of your mind

Oh my dear you’ve got me all wrong

Why are you looking at me like that?
It drowns me in doubt and you’ve been telling me how to act
Well maybe I would do exactly as you wish
If I was your clone and kept my mouth stitched

I am much like you but don’t get me confused
The things I feel are much too real for you to say are a lie

Why are you looking at me like that?
It drowns me in doubt and you’ve been telling me how to act
Well maybe I would do exactly as you wish
If I was your clone and kept my mouth stitched
Track Name: Stereotype
There was a day when someone just like me
Did something wrong to you
But to put me in their place
Is a cold thing to do

They talk about me as if they know who I am
But they don’t know me like I know myself
Oh well I guess I fit the stereotype
But I’m not what they made me out to be

I am innocent so don’t try to guilt me

Where do I belong
Who has their arms open to me
I need to know
I feel so alone
The judgment they hang over my head
Feels so cold

Get away from me
If you just want to see me fall
I don’t need your negativity
The actions of another don’t represent me
I’m not to blame for the wrongs that they’ve done to you

I am innocent so don’t try to guilt me

Where do I belong
Who has their arms open to me
I need to know
I feel so alone
The judgment they hang over my head
Feels so cold
Where do I belong
Who has their arms open to me
I need to know
I feel so alone
For the judgment they hang over my head
Feels so cold

There was a day when someone just like me
Did something wrong to you
But to put me in their place is a cold thing to do
Track Name: Who You Are
You are whoever you say your are
So far away is the one I used to know
But I have let it go and let you grow
Into who you think you need to be
Don’t try to tell me that I never set you free

We used to know
Who we were until we got lost in ourselves

So I will find myself where I was before
I ran away from home and tried to make you my own
But I can’t have you as mine
And you can’t have me as yours
We must complete ourselves until the end of time

Am I myself well I can’t be
Anybody else but me
Now listen closely to these words I speak
If you lost yourself it is within reach

Relax, just breathe
We’re the ones who hold the keys to what we need

So you will find yourself where you were before
You ran away from home and tried to make me your own
But you can’t have me as yours
And I can’t have you as mine
We must complete ourselves until the end of time

We will find ourselves
Where we were before we ran away from home
We will find ourselves
Where we were before we ran away from home
Track Name: The Darkest Day
She said goodbye I need some time
To figure out who is locked inside
So I gave her space and all the time we need
Now I can tell she is never coming back to me

The darkest day shadowed over me
When she said goodbye
And I couldn’t believe it wasn’t a lie
The look in her eyes said please stay
But she could not look at me
She had to look away

When her beautiful soul had to let me go
I needed to know what to hold on to
I’ve been left alone with nothing left to show
For what we held so dearly

The darkest day shadowed over me
When she said goodbye
And I couldn’t believe it wasn’t a lie
The look in her eyes said please stay
But she could not look at me
She had to look away

How did she get close enough
To tear me apart with distance
When she said let’s take this slow
I didn’t know she meant the end
Track Name: Growing Apart
Please don’t come back unless you have forgiven yourself
For what we’ve become
I can no longer hold on to you in fear of
Where we truly belong

Away from this mess
That we both have been stressed about
For years life has been getting dull
We’ve spent far too much time growing apart
But now we’re bold enough to take back what we have sold

I thought I knew you but you didn’t know yourself
I tried to be there but it did not help
And so you left me with all I have been
So I can stay true to the bitter sweet end

We sold ourselves and we sailed away
Into each other’s shame
How could we do this and stay sane enough
To know that neither of us are to blame

You thought you knew me but I didn’t know myself
You tried to be there but it did not help
And so I left you with all you have been
So you can stay true to the bitter sweet end

We thought we knew us but we didn’t know ourselves
We tried to be there but it did not help
And so it left us with all we have been
So we can stay true into the bitter sweet end

Please don’t come back unless you have forgiven yourself
For what we’ve become
I can no longer hold on to you in fear of
Where we truly belong
Track Name: Regrow
All I was is in the past
The life I had cannot come back
I must have strayed behind the heart that keeps me moving along
Now with every beat that sounds I want this moment to be found

Grounding me to my home
So that I can make it on my own
The peace in me goes missing when I am anxious or depressed
So take me away from this mess

So I can see that I am blessed to be anything
And “I must not stress my chest to full of a feeling”
I get when I reach ahead of the heart that moves me along
Now with every beat that sounds I want this moment to be found

Grounding me to my home
So that I can make it on my own
The peace in me goes missing when I am anxious or depressed
So take me away from this mess

Take me away from this mess
I need to alleviate the stress in my chest
Now take me away from this mess
I need to alleviate the stress in my chest
So I can see that I am blessed to be anything...
