"Bro Hymn" as written by Fletcher Dragge, Jason M. Thirsk, Byron Mcmackin and Jim Lindberg....
To all my friends present, past and beyond
Especially those who weren't with us too long
Life is the most precious thing you can lose
While you were here the fun was never ending
Laugh a minute was only beginning
Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you

Ever get the feeling you can't go on
Just remember whose side it is that you're on
You've got friends with you 'til the end
If you're ever in a tough situation
We'll be there with no hesitation
Brotherhood's our rule we cannot bend

When you're feeling too close to the bottom
You know who it is you can count on
Someone will pick you up again
We can conquer anything together
All of us are bonded forever
If I die, you die that's the way it is

To all my friends, present past and beyond
To all those who weren't with us too long
Life is the most precious thing you can lose
While you were here the fun was never ending
Laugh a minute was only the beginning
Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you

    General CommentThis was my first Pennywise song! It's my favourite too. Wut loyal friends, heh. My parents probably think I'm crazy though... I spend my time listening to drunken screaming men yelling about their dead friends... RIP Jason!

    General CommentDoes anyone realize that this song was actually written by Jason Thirsk and appeared on their first Epitaph album, "Pennywise"? It was written in memory of 3 of their friends who died, Tim Colvin, Carlos Canton, and Tom Nichols. When Jason blew his head off in '96, the fellas from PW thought honoring their best friend's life with a song he wrote would be a great way to remember him.
