"If You Don't Know Now You Know" as written by and Josef John W Peters....
When it rains, it fucking pours,
Until I'm soaked to the bone.
Trapped in a pattern of self destruction,
This shit's been coming far too much to ignore.

Then again, who gives a fuck?
Bad luck when I'm gone ain't nobody gonna miss me much,
Guess I'll live fast, Guess I'll die young,
Even if I could, don't think I'd wanna hold on.

So give me one good fucking reason why I should tighten my grip,
I'll give you hundred of reasons that you should abandon this ship.

Ooooooh... OH!

God Damn,
I don't claim to have the answers or the keys,
To be honest life's mysteries scare the shit out of me,
I'm just a man doing the best that I can,
But these locks just seem to get the better of me everyday.
Damn.

You don't know shit if you think you know me,
Don't owe you nothing, don't just gushing fucking blow me,
My heads a fucking mess, my heart is fucking cold,
And if you don't know now you know.

Oh.

If you don't know now you know [x5]
If you don't know now you fucking know, Yeah.

When it rains, it fucking pours,
Until I'm soaked to the bone.

    He's Saying that he doesn't have lifes answers such as, why are we here. Also saying he doesn't have the key to happiness. He's trying to get on with life, but he questions it everyday.

    "So give me one good fucking reason why I should tighten my grip,
    I'll give you hundred of reasons that you should abandon this ship"

    Saying that he belives he has no reason to live, and that he has many reasons why he should die.

    "Then again, who gives a fuck?
    Bad luck when I'm gone ain't nobody gonna miss me much,
    Guess I'll live fast, Guess I'll die young,
    Even if I could, don't think I'd wanna hold on"

    Saying that his life is pointless and noone cares.

    "When it rains, it fucking pours,
    Until I'm soaked to the bone"

    Saying that if he gets knocked down, its so hard to get up again

    That's my interpretation.
