And also Crossroads, you wouldn't think that many people would vote for that. I wish kill the president was there, i would have voted for that.

But the lyrics are self explaining! You don't need Dexter for this one!

Seriously that is what I thought about Lighning Rod, and I was hoping it didn't win because it's pretty obvious what it is about.

I voted for Gone Away. Sure the lyrics are pretty self-explainatary, but maybe if it wins then Dexter will finally have to talk about the inspiration behind it etc.

Didn't dexter's wife die in a car accident before he wrote that song?

It was his daughters mother, so it was like his girlfriend, or so people have told me.

That would be quite interesting to ask him about then, because im sure Gone Away probably symbolises that loss, as it is unusual for the offspring to normally write heartfelt lyrics.
