Sink it. Save it.
I haven't done one of these in a long time. There are many songs that have impacted my life. As Hans Anderson said,"Where words fail, music speaks." And this song speaks volumes. When this band posted the status above 5 months ago, my heart plummeted. There's a certain sadness to being with a band through everything, from being one of the first 5 fans all the way to the 3k they won over, through the member changes, through the breakups, personal problems, equipment failure, fights, etc. and then seeing it all end... Just like that. I was depressed for days and I still get a little down every time one of their songs play. Their first single,"Sink it. Save it." is still my favorite of theirs and a top 10 song of mine overall. Since their lyrics were never posted to any website, I decided to take it upon myself to type them out for anybody who sees this card, and also, for my own future reference ^.^ I'm also going to do a few of my other favorites and depending on the approval, or lack of, I'll share those too ^.^ I hope somebody ends up appreciating it and helps keeps this figment of a small bands dream alive even if they're gone! Sink it. Save it., by The Crash Years *curtains rise. Audience goes wild* (Not sure if I should tag anybody, but I'll do my regular ones lol Sorry if I've been bugging a bit recently XD @ButterflyBlu @alywoah @AlloBaber @danidee @nicolejb @marshalledgar @MichelleHolly @hikaymm @shannonl5 @RaquelArredondo @buddyesd @jordanhamilton @sophiamor @JPBenedetto )

You're bent and broken from the fall. You've weakened, still building up walls. You're barricading every feeling coming in from the outside. You've been damaged let me fix you. Oh, you want things you're scared to admit to. I know you think you've gotten over it. Honestly, I can see straight through you. No one's gonna let you be the the one to take this, make it or break this, sink it or save it. Your head above the water for your lungs sake, you're shaking, floating to make it. Sink it or save it. You're torn for better times you've made, the times we long to captivate, but every minute loses grip on moments later forgetten. It's the future I can offer you, not a past that he keeps you under. Dreamers dream, but settlers wait on someone else to recover. No one's gonna let you be the one to take this, make this or break this, sink it or save it. Your head above the water for your lungs sake, you're shaking, floating to make it, sink it or save it. It goes like this: the settling, a painful wait to a painful shift to a brand new start you would break apart in a moments notice. From the time I've spent watching seasons drift over my head, just trying to make some sense of the world that I've been forced to live in. You've been speaking words and I cannot say how impressive you make lying seem, what an awful way to try and clear your name. So tell me why I have been waitin' No one's gonna let you be the one to take this, make it or break it, sink it or save it. Your head above the water for your lungs sake. You're shaking, floating to make it, sink it or save it. And it goes like this, the settling a painful wait to a painful shift to a brand new start you would break apart in a moments notice.

This is great and even though their project is over, I'm glad they existed to impact your life! I feel the same way about quite a few of the bands I grew up with that have ceased and even though it hurts that they'll never make music as that entity again, im happy for all the wisdom, memories, and different perspectives they gave me. Great card, thank you! *goes to itunes library to reminisce*
