"Resolve" as written by Paul David Webb and Beth Gibbons....
Don't leave me in this room
The walls are closing in
This is the space I used to say

The line is drawn for you each day
But every day you show
With sound of caving walls

Some day this song will have no pulse
And I'll cave alone
But there we are

Waiting for your answer
Your arms speeded elation
Beating out your salvation

But when the tape stopped you were gone
A half measure from home
This week I recreate

Edit you back into
The blare that could define you
Coveted by few who knew

The phone rings without pause
This grief wills everyone
All I have is our shitty song

How could it ever be enough?
Here we are in our final accord
A mortician and his tools

Sonically bury you
You could have chose another chord to resolve on

    General CommentAbout Derrick's death and the half-finished Bad Astronaut CD. Joey talks about how he has to deal with "editing" derrick into the final CD. It reallly brings out the pressure of Joey to put out the CD. He knows this is what the fans will want, what Derrick might want but he was relapsing into substance abuse. By finishing the CD he feels he can finally put Derrick Plourde to rest.

    And when it comes out in a few days i'll be the first to buy a copy. Thanks Joey your work is VASTLY appriciated. I could not have done what you did. RIP Derrick.

    General CommentOne thing I like about Lagwagon are their ability to write very catchy, engaging and deep lyrics with huge meaning. Sure other bands out there can play their asses off and are great to listen to but theres something about Lagwagon that seperate them from the masses. These guys are the epitomy of "real" music.
