A Collision Preorder package
Written by David Crowder
I am bendable you’ll see, watch me folding at the knees.
This song was released exclusively on the DVD contained in the preorder package for A Collision. The song is likely about Hurricane Katrina, evidenced the news samples included near the end of the song.
This is what Crowder has stated related to the song:
" i do not possess a copy of that dvd, nor the song. and so, in lieu of access to the dvd, i am attempting to track down the original pro-tools file. this way, i can solo the vocal channel and we will know, once and for all, what it is that the vocalist, i believe it to be me, “it” being the vocalist, is saying. ok, so i found the hard drive that it is on, but i don’t have my mbox with me. i’ll have to wait until i can go out to the studio. ok, so i am now in the studio. i have opened the pro-tools file that is labeled “bending2”. sure enough, it’s that song! ok, soloing the vocal track. here’s what i say: “i am bendable you’ll see, watch me folding at the knees.”
i’m intrigued by the news samples i included toward the end of the song. i’m soloing them now. ok, here’s the first guy: “…overcome. the drinking water supply is going to become undrinkable and the the longer people stay in the city the more people are going to become gravely ill and that’s only going to compound the problem and that just adds another degree of absolute immediate seriousness to the situation here in new orleans. it is an urban crisis. the city is going to be closed off for good for seemingly 6 to 8 weeks possibly even longer. it is barricaded around the city limits you cannot get in, you are not allowed into this city, there is only one direction to go & it is out…” then a female newscaster enters: “…the red cross volunteers here….sound of the choppers overhead have to be a welcome sound to the people on the ground as they hope to be on these choppers to get out of there in short order…there’s a place where you can list missing loved ones…missing loved ones…missing loved ones…missing loved ones…”"
