"Angel's Son" as written by Morgan J. Rose, Clint Edward Lowery, La Jon Jermaine Witherspoon and Mikey Dolan....
Life is changing
I can't go on without you
Rearranging
I will be strong
I'll stand by you

You were fighting everyday
So hard to hide the pain
I know you never said goodbye
I have so much left to say

One last song given to an angel's son
As soon as you were gone
As soon as you were gone

I have a new life now
She lives through you
What can I do
I feel so alone now
I'll pray for you
We still love you

You were fighting everyday
So hard to hide the pain
I know you never said goodbye
I have so much left to say

One last song given to an angel's son
As soon as you were gone
As soon as you were gone

One last song (I can't believe you're gone)
Given to an angel's son (I can't believe)
As soon as you were gone
As soon as you were gone

    Anyways, this song is friggin' awesome. Its bad to always think about death, but I now know what song I want to be played when I die (this one).

    Lynn, so sorry I only discovered you guys last year, you'll always be in my heart.

    General CommentOh, and another thing.. if you watch the music video for this song, they are singing the song around a campfire and a ghost appears. That is the ghost of Lynn Strait.

    General CommentActually, Lynn Strait and his dog were killed in a car accident, the other driver involved was drunk, the ghost of his dog is also portrayed in the Strait Up Video, and i believe that his mother is with all the bands in the campfire. This is one of the best tribute songs i've ever heard, and does complete justice for Lynn.

    General Commentok, since mst of the facts are strewn about, ill do everyone a favor and group them all together. Lyn Strait (lead singer of the band Snot) was killed in a car crash w/ his dog Dobbs resulting in the banmds break-up. Some time later, the members of the band and several of Lynn's old friends (which include Lajon Witherspoon and Brandon Boys just to name a few) got together and decide to compose an album entirely devoted to the memory of their fallen comrade. They called the album 'Strait Up' and it is merely a tirbute album to Lynn. No the remnants of Snot are not calling themselves "strait up" (FYI: in case you didnt already know, SNot's old guitarist now plays for the Limp Bizkit... who has sucked ever since Choclate Starfish... tss.. "rollin'" my hairy white butt... BIZKIT SUX!!!...oh...uh... anyway....) and NO Lynn did not die from an OD.

    To the song itslef... it is probably the most beatiful and poigniant tribute song to have ever been released. A touching tribute to a great man who was taken too soon.

    It's lack of airplay was kind of a mixed blesisng though. It was good since it wasn't replayed ad nasuem on mainstream radio and hence raped of its integrity and intentions (God knows how many Linkin Park songs this has happened to.) but it was a little tragic that so many people have yet to hear this brilliant composition. maybe its best left as a "dimond in the rough of obscurity" so to say. untouched by commercial tarnish, this song is an unheard classic. Its a shame that someone had to die in order for this to be accomplished. Still, an incredible song. ifu haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and get your hands on it.

    General CommentNOTE: please ignore my acccidental rating of 2 stars. I meant to give it 5, but wires got crossed after rating a previous song w/ a 2.

    General CommentMy son put this song on his wedding cd. I asked him why he would put such a sad song on his wedding cd combo and he said it was because he liked the song. 3 years later he died in a motorcycle accident. I can't help wondering if it was somehow prophetic? Worst day of my life!
