Hopes Anchor (TCM Cover) by Ben Wamberg

All props for lyrics and original music to The Color Morale. This song is called Hopes Anchor =] Rough as, but Kendi joined me at the very end. Had to post it. haha

So this stays been cold,
The nights we’ll share I long for.
We’ll look with more than just our eyes,
I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried.

Every way on my own, we’ll move on.
For the way will be unforgiving,
We’ll move on, on our own.
I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried,
I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried.
(I wont quit, I wont quit)

Will we be there in the end,
Or will this leave me wide open?
Will this be here in the end,
Or will it leave me wide open,
Waiting on our second wind?
We are all enabled.


I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried.
(I too will try)
I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried.

In all you say and do keep to the follow through,
We’re nothing without you.
So tonight all the fearful will feed,
And share remains with the ones who need.
I’ve been used, I’ve been tried, I’ve been tested,
But I have yet to break.
So share your fears with me.

I won’t quit, I won’t quit,
I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried.
We are enabled

How many times have you approached God honestly, deeply and truly; Asking for nothing, but received everything. Had everything to hide, but hid nothing. Said not a word, but spoke endlessly. Never opened your eyes, but saw eternity… How many times have you approached your Maker; not as who you want to be, not as who you wish you were, not as who you think you are, not as who you ought to be; But just as you are, with all the dirt that covered you, when He first fell in love with you.

You know, I was talking to a friend with different music taste than me and she was talking about how violent and hurt people can get at punk/pop punk shows and I was like “No, I don’t agree, I think that the pushing and shoving is natural, but no one ever lets someone fall without helping them back up, or giving a lift to go crowd surfing, people are just generally nice.” Sure there are some assholes but I think shows are so much fun because of the “family” dynamic, like “hey we’re all here for the same thing lets have fun” 

Exactly. My people.

Basically, if you treat girls like they’re fragile and need to be babied… whether by the tone in your voice, by your ‘supposed-to-be-cute’ terms of endearment, or any of that bullshit… fuck you. 

Equal Rights means being treated as an equal. I don’t need you, or any Man, for the sake of them being a man, to take care of me.

I would like to say first off: Yes. This is absolutely true.
In addition, women don’t need to be men to be equal and vice versa.

I am about to get slightly biblical. It’s my heart and the basis for my logic; I hope it doesn’t turn you off but do please feel free to ignore the next part! 

Ladies and gents, women being in submission to men was part of the curse - Jesus broke the curse. Women in the OT led, spoke in courts, were Judges, prophetesses and leaders of men. Why would an inferior covenant have superior freedom? Women are not weak or lacking in the way of being less than a man - but both sides are able to compensate for things the other may lack. I believe this trait to be more specific for relationships between specific people, as opposed to being gender specific however.

God calls Eve (Hebrew for woman; Adam is man coincidentally) “help-mate" in the Hebraic text - a name He uses to describe women five other times in the OT and 11 times for Himself. It is never used for men. It means “a great power, opposite; a strength to rescue; a power that looks you in the face, intimately (eye to eye, suggesting total equality) and accomplishes what you cannot.” That Christianity has taken much of the New Testament’s statements on women in a few areas in specific circumstances of confusion and made it a statement and submission and cultural enslavement is ridiculously saddening. Women are co-heirs, e.g. equal and completely, radically-competent rulers.

Being a partner, in the biblical sense, is to be equally yoked, or to be supported as you support the person supporting you. Partnership is loving that person like you love yourself, giving to equip that person to excel.

Let me end with this: To any men that believe I’m foolish for this view, deal with this idea: Paul said to love our wives as Christ loves the church - He died for the church. An act of total self-sacrifice to equip and empower her to be greater than she could have been without his death. He gave everything for her. He did not aim for control or enslavement of the bride, rather He lived and died for her to become equal and accomplish greater things than He did himself.

Who’s more important? The secret service or the President? Who protects whom?
The Agents lay down their lives to protect the Pres - it’s a value statement.
We are to be willing to die for our spouses.

Thanks!

p.s. in anticipation of a question: No. Women are not weak or in need of empowering. People as a whole are in need of empowering to go beyond what they can achieve by themselves. (It’s about loving someone enough to be second, and loving yourself enough to have that love be a decent model of how you love others).
