Otherside

Album: Indestructible (2003)
  • I was an atheist
    You wore the crucifix
    We put our differences to the side
    Lesson taught well and lesson learned
    You told me not to mourn
    Your heart was bigger than any man alive

    Campbell California
    Oh please don't let me down
    Robert I remember when you used to run the town
    I'll never forget and I'll always be your friend
    I'll be seeing you on the other side

    I'm weakened at the knees
    From pain and now you are free
    I miss the days that you walked with me
    Loyal brother, loyal friend
    Showed me how to be a man
    I love you Robert and I always will Writer/s: LARS FREDERIKSEN, TIM ARMSTRONG

  • Amanda from Anchorage, AkI'm fairly certain that the song is about Lars' brother. Not Tim's.
