Silverstein – A Shipwreck In The Sand lyrics

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 to being true and faithful, they now began to revolt

You crossed the line
I was honest and 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

And we started
And the captain went over
He asked them why
Their lives 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 mind
I was honest and 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

His dream is now
A shipwreck in the sand
They gave up
Then made all their demands
The storm consumed
57 souls
Died in vain
His love they stole

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
This union, this union

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
This union, this union

This union, a battle fought and lost
This union was not about the cause
This union was never about love
