"I Shook Hands With Death" as written by and Nic Edward Pettersen Jonathon Francis Deiley....
So stand the fuck up, show me that this life is worth living.
Oh take this day and call it your own;
This is your chance to redeem yourself.
In a world where every single day counts,
The clock strikes twelve and I'm still in bed,
Staring at the ceiling.
Will I ever amount to anything?
I will never know.
The inevitability of life, and the calamities of this world, FUCK!
Is there a purpose in this life to be fulfilled?
Is there a way to make sense of a life that will one day end?
Will anything I do be remembered?
Will these words live to be read by the eyes of a new generation?
I will be there for, for you I will be there.
Pick your fucking self up and realise that one day you will be a memory.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.
So stand the fuck up, show me that this life is worth living.
Oh take this day and call it your own;
This is your chance to redeem yourself.
I will never know.

    General CommentThis seems to lack some verses, in 1:28 after "Will I ever amount to anything?". I can't comprehend exactly what he sings...
