"Minno" as written by and Christopher James Wollard Charles Allen Ragan....
If you hear this I hope it eases
Some troubles you left with.
And I'm not sure what to say but I think I would,
Would've known that last day.
You said you had
The goals to come out on top, to set you up
To live untouched
By all the things that kept you from keeping up.

Then we heard and we hurt
And we scorned.
We burned for last words
Now lost. (You were our friend.)

The silence we sat through.
The break throughs, the laughter,
The shelter and the future
You planned on - I'll miss them.

I hope you're in a better place
With soul set free.
I hope you're still singing loud
With soul set free.
Too bad you're not around
For us to see,
But I still feel you around
Like you never left us.

    General CommentOf coarse a fallen friend. One of the most powerful and moving songs ever writen. It must be hard to write a song that you want to mean so much but u cant express every emotion in words (although hwm does a great job)they sertinly would have known what to say on that last day. They burned for last words now lost when they wrote this song. The only thing harder than writing a song like this is kowig it will probably never be good enough in there eyes. And to be able to get up on stage ad sing your heart out in this song and not get all choked up on the words and thoughts going through there heads Im shure thats what there fallen friend would apreshiate the most.(I know i do) This song can still get me all upset when i hear it.(Because I know what its like to lose a best friend)

    General CommentFrom the "Live at the Hardback" booklet:

    In remembrance of an old friend who took his life under the 13th St. bridge. He left us for reasons that no one but him may every understand. Though we were left uneasy and confused, we were left with the memory of all the good in him. This is for Minno. Rest in peace. We'll remember you.

    General CommentThe most beautiful song i have ever heard. I still cry when i hear it. I lost my grandfather right around the first time I ever heard this song, and it makes me miss him even more. Although minno is about a suicide, it gives me hope that there are better times ahead and that my grandfather is happy wherever he may be.

    General CommentI just got the biggest shiver going down my spine when I was listening to this song. There are few songs that do that, and this was the biggest shiver yet.

    The music complements the lyrics perfectly, what more can I say?
