"That's Life" as written by Dean Kay and Kelly L. Gordon....
That's life, that's what I say,
Shot up in April, strung out in may,
But I know it won't, be too soon,
When I'm back on, night train in June,
I said that's life, as funny as it may seem,
All of my friends get their kicks stompin on my dreams
But I don't let it let it get me down
'cause this fucked up world keeps me spinning around
I've been a pupet, pauper, pirate a poet, a pawn & a king,
I've been up and down over and out and I know one thing,
Each time I find my self flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race that's life
I tell ya I can't deny it t thought of quittin
Lady my heart ain't gonna buy it and if I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd shoot me up a bag and then id fly that's life
And I have defied it many times I have cut out
But I haven't died yet and if there is nothing shakin
By this July I'm gonna shoot myself up with a speed ball & die!

    General CommentGreat cover of an old song by Frank Sinatra. This song makes me want to not only break stuff, but also makes me want to skate. Duane Peters is the best at this stuff, so if you ever see any coverage of him, you'll know what i mean

    General CommentWith the ending "shoot myself up with a speed ball and DIE" I don't think he is condoning suicide, he's saying that the option of choosing life or death is always there. Nothing good will ever be easy, so no use complaining about it. If you have a shitty life, it's no one's fault but your own... so to make things right, you have to take responsibility and put in the effort.
