Please shake my hand... I don't know it it's just me these days things hit me hard overcome by waves of emotion too many close to me have left this world too soon Maybe we'll meet on the other side maybe those dark days will help me see the light maybe, just maybe Puts things into persective I see conflict all around the world imploding in an undercurrent of hate None of us is perfect I don't always get it right but surely life's too short is it worth the quarrels, the fights? A country on the edge, click, click, click a world even worse, like a time bomb ticks cyber attackers have us worried sick Another worrying rise from the right no end to terrorism in sight No end to the arms race slowing down the time has come to rally round Whoever you are, wherever you're from if you are without prejudice you are welcome in my home welcome in my town If you see me, pleaase shake my hand before it all comes crashing down...
