I was an atheist
You wore the crucifix
We put our differences to the side
Lesson taught well and lesson learned
You told me not to mourn
Your heart was bigger than any man alive

Campbell California
Oh please don't let me down
Robert I remember when you used to run the town
I'll never forget and I'll always be your friend
I'll be seeing you on the other side

I'm weakened at the knees
From pain and now you are free
I miss the days that you walked with me
Loyal brother, loyal friend
Showed me how to be a man
I love you Robert and I always will

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on Indestructible. It's a tribute to Lars' older brother Robert who died. R.I.P.

    General Commentyeah this is the best song on the album. its funny how lars had a family member die and tim had his wife leave him but brody is the ssue of most of the album, not lars' brother Robert.

    General CommentThis ends the album "indestructible" on a high note. I almost wish it was the first track on the album, but it's really cool when the cd ends with this great song and raps back around to Indestructible

    General Comment"I love you Robert and I always will"

    I love this line because it's not exactly the type of line you'd expect to hear in a fast-pace punk rock song...Rancid is full of surprises.....I remember the first time I listened to Maxwell all the way through....I didnt know that there was that insane bass solo in it
