"Date With Destiny" as written by Jim Lindberg, Fletcher Dragge, Byron Mcmackin and Randy James Bradbury....
A burning plane as its going down the last scream before it hits the ground
A lost ship on a raging sea a blinking distress signal of emergency
A run away train careening off the tracks the last breath before a heart attack
The earthquake as it shakes your room promising falling skies in impending doom
One chance you feel it before you meet with your destiny
One chance you need it to com to terms with mortality
All thats important to me
Everything inside of me
All that's trivial will fade and soon recede you will see when on a date with destiny
Look in the jaws of your own demise watch your life pass before your eyes
Did you live like a dream come true or did you just survive?
Did you do all you could do?
In a fall from a burning tower
What would you do with just one more hour?
Live that hour out everyday
Like it was your last you'll live much better that way
You're on a date with destiny

    General CommentThis song is not saying live wreckless in fact its saying live careful. Live according to what your heart says and what is right. Carve your own path do what you need to do according to what your heart says, and don't stray. If you do this dying should not bother you.
