So Much For Substitutes
by downhere


Anchor up, tow me out of this pit I'm dreading
Turn this vessel's path around
I look above, I'm in love
With the pace you're setting
From this stream we're ocean bound

And I know for sure I'm headed straight for the edge
And I know for sure I'm headed straight for the edge
'Cause that's just where You are

I'm the son, you're the King
Makes me royalty now
It's no title without pain
In the end it is well
After storms and beatings
These muddy rivers empty out


That's where You are


Anchor up, tow me out of this pit I'm dreading

Written by Jason Germain / Marc Martel

Behind the Song:
Mark 8:34-38
We had no lyrics at all when we first went in the studio to record the demo. I just sat down for ten minutes and wrote the first lines that came into my head, not expecting to keep any of it. We actually kept about 80 percent of those lyrics on the final version. A life with Christ is not usually one of great ease. Christ is with the poor, the hurting, the persecuted, and the unloved people. If you decide to follow Jesus, you have to realize that He just might lead you to some places of incredible conflict, to be a light there. - Marc Martel (downhere)
