    If the moment could I fortell
    then live a life like going to hell
    And then repent before the rapture come
    surely my heaven would be won
    But for those who are knocking on it's door
    It's too late to give advise anymore
    So as I walk down the street kicking the cans
    So long Frank, Kenny, Mary and Fran (Report) Reply
