8. A Shipwreck In The Sand
Once upon a time Before the lakes and rivers were polluted Before the animals were poached to extinction And before man had destroyed the earth's atmosphere There was a great ship. This vessel was to venture into new waters To find new resources, to make life easier and more enjoyable. It was a simple mission for the crew Who were excited to be a part of this union They pledged their allegiance to the captain And vowed to be there no matter what In sickness, health, and possible death As time passed by, there was no new land to be found As the days grew shorter And the nights grew longer and colder The crew became more and more skeptical about the captain's vision Originally passionate and committed true and faithful They now began to revolt. You crossed the line I was honest I never promised anything Just a brotherhood to stand for something And everyone should take the lead Follow your dreams If you don't try, you fail As the mutiny started and the captain was overthrown and chained He asked them why their minds had changed There's no gold to be found, no treasure in the ground We won't die for this We won't die for you You've lost your minds I was honest I never promised anything Just a brotherhood to stand for something And even if they disagree Follow your dreams If you don't try, you fail. This dream is now A shipwreck in the sand They gave up, they made all their demands The storm consumed fifty seven souls Who died in vain, his love they stole This union, a battle fought and lost This union is not about the cause This union was never about love This union [x2] This union, a battle fought and lost This union is not about the cause The union was never about love This union [x2] This union, a battle fought and lost This union was about about the cause This union was never about a love
