"The Wreckage" as written by and Ryan Gregory/clark Baustert....
The water’s rising up
The air is getting oh so thin
I struggle but I lie
Trapped under this crushing tide

My hands still shake with fear
The silence replaced all my tears
Time seems to pass me by
The doors are locked
I say goodbye

Take us away
Save us tonight
Close your eyes
Say goodbye
Save us tonight
Take us away

Caught in this wreckage with you
Hands tied at ten then tied at two
My scars won’t ever heal
When I am lying in this metal tomb
Caught in this wreckage with you
Hands tied at ten then tied at two
My scars won’t ever heal when I am lying
Dying next to you

The pictures in my head
A million things I should have said
I live with one regret
Pray to God he will hear my request

I close my eyes and then
The white light starts to filter in
I’ll see you at the end
Waiting there with my best friend

Take us away
Save us tonight
Close your eyes
Say goodbye
Save us tonight
Take us away

Caught in this wreckage with you
Hands tied at ten then tied at two
My scars won’t ever heal
When I am lying in this metal tomb
Caught in this wreckage with you
Hands tied at ten then tied at two
My scars won’t ever heal when I am lying
Dying next to you

My swollen heart explodes
Seeing you on your own
I fight with my last breath
Tear the cord that restrains my chest

I pulled the door ajar
Swam for safety leaving the car
I thought I got you clear
Pulled you out and found you some air

The sight of flashing lights
Tells me that I’m alive
The voices whisper
That the girl she went and died tonight

And I know my tears will rain
Until I’m with you once again
My love
My everything
My broken heart will never mend

And I know my tears will rain
Until I’m with you once again
My love
My everything
My broken heart will never end

    General CommentThis song picks up where the end of "His Blood, My Hands" ends, they have just crashed and it tells the story of him thinking he is going to die, then he sees the girl next to him and tries his best to save her, but in the end he survives and she dies

    General CommentThis is an amazing song and an amazing song. When I first I heard that song I didn't really think that this and "His blood, my hands"...but I know I get it. At first I thought they were totally unrelated but now I see how they are.
