Captain, We're Sinking
I haven't heard something this good in a while. I am truly impressed with this little tidbit of music. They have that gritty old punk rock sound with a pop punk twist. I like it. They are in the vein of Nightlights meets Hot Water Music's baby brother from up north. I mean just check out their lyrics...
Gunner Merring Will Have His Revenge
If you knew what I was thinking you’d all abandon me.
You’d throw me in the sea with broken knees.
Sarah sits at home because she’s sweating out her fears.
She’s choking on her tears. But no one hears her screaming
someone please save me. I need some form of recovery.
Sarah never told me I was only getting in the way,
just that I shouldn’t stay. Then I watched her fade away.
Now I’m throwing up on the floor thinking maybe I drink too much.
Maybe I don’t drink enough. I’ll get it right tomorrow but tonight I give up.
Someone please save me. I need some form of recovery.
When it’s over lay your head down and cry alone.
The cuts fade, but the scars never go.
I want to know why Sarah’s father beats her every night and day.
He sits by her wall and listen to her pray. She screams please,
dear god will you make that bastard pay? Then she’s buried in his fists,
and the last thing she ever hears him say is it’s over now.
First off they use my favorite word, Bastard, that is the best word and they have gritty vocals with nice sing alongs....mmmmmmhhh good stuff, check' em out
