Unexpecting brother
Doesn't know what to do
When everything just falls to the ground oh
He runs to find some cover
He doesn't have a clue
That his friend will never be found
When he's informed that he
Will never see the boy
Will never see the boy
You'll never see him open his eyes
We'll never see the boy
Never see the boy
You'll only hear his heavenly cries

Oh yeah oh oh oh

Thinking of the past,
It's all over now,
Mother nature's striked once again,
It happened oh so fast,
Now the question's how,
How could they let that building descend

Oh, yeah, oh

You will never see the boy,
You will never see the boy,
You will never see him open his eyes,
You will never see the boy,
Never see the boy,
You'll only hear his heavenly cries

Oh, yeah, oh, oh, oh,
Yeah, no no never, no oh

After your life, I leave, I'm dead,
Leading me off through the night,
If he's born again, I need you to find,
Need you to find, where he is.

    General CommentI don't know if this is what the song is about, but this reminds me of the death of River Phoenix and Joaquin's reaction to it.

    General CommentThis might just be my favorite song off of Frogstomp. Maybe even my favorite Silverchair song, in general. I've loved it ever since I first heard it. Anyway, I've read that it's about a friend of Daniel's who died in an Earthquake. If that's true, then that makes this a pretty sad song. A really good one, though.
