about

Tank is literally my 2nd favorite pet (next to Gummy). His story was always something I dug and admired. Colortwelve's dance groovy beat really worked well to inspire me to write a sweeping melody that contrasts against the quick paced rap verse.

It's a simple idea: Against all odds, persistence and loyalty allowed the slowest one to be the best one.

Ultimately I'd love to have a female with a really killer power vocal to cover this track, and I would redo my rap vocals.

Colortwelve was working on an even more improved instrumental, but if he ever wants to work on this again with a pipe strong lady vocalist, I'd always be happy to return to Ghastly Gorge.

Enjoy!

Nobody thought you'd make the cut.
Nobody thought you'd take the spot.
And they laughed and they laughed
cause they knew you wouldn't make it past.

And even though you couldn't move that fast.
And when you thought you might not last

Yet you tried and you stayed and defied the final task.

And you flew without the wings
And you ruled above the kings.
And you soared across the sky.
See you fly see you glide...

1:22
Verse

Dash, I know you asked for the Wing-ed ones.
I know you didn't have it in you to think of us

The Ground dwellers and Earth walkers of all types.
You wanted creatures of flight to soar the fall skies.

So

You let us try, though against your will.
Fact is, we couldn't fly even better still.

But even better that you didn't kick me out.
Allowed me to attempt the challenge when you had your doubts.

I know you've never been in last place.
I know you've never had to settle for that bad taste.

But I believe I'm the pet that you need.
But you just have to close your eyes and trust me.

I'll be real with you
Can't flip fly or jump but I'm here for you.

And here's the truth. Things that appear to you
ain't what they seem, beneath, I'll endear to you.

1:52 New Chorus

//And you flew without the wings
And you ruled above the kings.
And you soared across the sky.
See you fly see you glide...

And even though you couldn't move that fast.
And when you thought you might not last

Yet you tried and you stayed and defied the final task.

2:22
Verse 2

Ghastly Gorge, a nasty force
Fast birds on the path, and a bat for sure.

And that's for sure, I ain't gonna last the tour.
But I swore to complete so I have to forge.

On

Thorn bushes and giant eels.
I'm feeling a mild bit of spine chills.

My appeal as a Tank is to drive wheels.
Shell Shock till I rock as I grind the field.

But over there is an avalanche.
A giant boulder is holding a pallid Dash.

A man of action is actually me.
As I lift with my neck to set Rainbow Dash Free.

Then i'll ask her to latch on my back
Aim for the goal as I trudge down the track.

Back on the trenches,
Did I mention, I'll end this race on the path of the Friendship?

2:52

Nobody thought you'd make the cut.
Nobody thought you'd take the spot.
And they laughed and they laughed
cause they knew you wouldn't make it past.

And even though you couldn't move that fast.
And when you thought you might not last

Yet you tried and you stayed and defied the final task.

And you flew without the wings
And you ruled above the kings.
And you soared across the sky.
See you fly see you glide...
