Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan's "Like Goodbye Letter."

Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan's "Like Goodbye Letter."

A Poem by Tenfold

M. Shadows tells about The Rev and the song called Fiction.

"Basically Jimmy had written a song and I pushed him to keep finishing it because I thought it was brilliant. Three days before he died, he finished the song. He called it Death. The very end lyrics he repeats over and over are, "I hope its worth it what's left behind me, I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight", and he sings that 4 times over and over like, over this eerie organ, and like the slowest, saddest key changes... and he died 3 days later. He told me that night, he'd finished it. He said "You know Matt, I'm finished writing on this record. I think I've given you guys everything that I have on this record. I don't know if we have anymore songs left from anybody else or what we're going to do but this, this is my final song." It was like a goodbye letter."
