"The Chronicles of Life and Death" as written by and Benji/madden Madden....
You come in cold, you're covered in blood
They're all so happy you've arrived
The doctor cuts your cord, hands you to your mom
She sets you free into this life

And where do you go
With no destination, no map to guide you
Wouldn't you know that it doesn't matter; we all end up the same

These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem
You come in this world, and you go out just the same
Today could be the best day of your life

And money talks, in this world that's what idiots will say
But you'll find out, that this world is just an idiots parade
Before you go, you've got some questions, and you want answers
But now you're old, cold covered in blood
Right back to where you started from

These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem
You come in this world, and you go out just the same
Today could be the worst day of your life

These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between
These are the stories of our lives, as fictional as they may seem
You come in this world, and you go out just the same
Today could be the best day of,
Today could be the worst day of,
Today could be the last day of your life.
It's your life
Your life

    General Commenttruongt41- haha! hammer time! Alright! Can't touch this!

    Ok...about the song...If this song makes you want to commit suicide...you may already have some mental depression issues. Check with your psychiatrist on that one, hon. And...it is an awesome song! I love it! Although, I'm not sure about the 'covered in blood' thing when they are talking about when you are old...o.0...kinda weirded me out the first time I heard it. ^-^'. It makes more sense at the beginning, because when you are born...ok...well, I don't need to go into detail, we all get it, right? I guess they did the 'old, cold, covered in blood' thing just for lyrics sake, so it would match up with the beginning! Well, anyone without the album should get it...Life and Death versions are both good! I love GC and Joel is hot! ^-^.

    *Peace...............hammer time! hahahahaha!!! I love that!

    General CommentI really like the line "And money talks, in this world, that's what idiots will say. But you'll find out, that this world, is just an idiots parade." It's SO true.

    General Comment"Money talks in this world, that's what idiots will say. But you'll find out that this world is just an idiot's parade" Best song line ever written.
    I like this song. It makes you think about how everyone really IS the same. "You come in this world, and you go out just the same" Everyone's born the same way, and although not everyone dies of the same causes, death is the same after the fact that you're dead...can you dig it?
