    As the bass drums stay silent and the cymbals don’t roar,
    the snare drum sits across the floor
    and as the tom toms wait for someone to hit them
    the hi hat stays open.
    the drumset just sits there and stays in its spot
    no one to play it
    no one to make it roar
    as he flew away to heaven
    and in his lyrics HE wrote
    “I don’t belong here, we gotta move on dear
    Escape from this afterlife”
    but be as it may that he arrived too early,
    his soul will always be with us
    but all we can do is to stay strong
    and stay afloat
    because he will always be inside of us in spirit…
    and again in his words
    “loved ones back are already missin me”
    and it is deffinately true
    and as his words flow through me, i understand what he meant
    and as that song, which has gotten me through thick and thin
    plays on my ipod, i think of how amazing he was.
    he will always be missed…
