"Ready Or Not" as written by Christopher Charles Lloyd, Marvin Bernard and Jacob Brian Dutton....
Do you want to get out
Do you want to give in
Do you want to be contained, do you want to be restrained
Do you want to be enforced by the laws that are made
Do you want to be deprived
Do you want to be advised
Do you want to be controlled, want to be patrolled
Do you want to be designed to accept all the time
Do you want to be bored
Or do you want to be broke
Do you want to be conned, do you want to be robbed
Do you want to have to beg for the price of a smoke

Do you want to go round, and around and around
Do you want to go round and round, round and round
Till you can't get out, out of the ground

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Stop, are you ready or not
Are you ready to drop
Are you ready or not
Are you ready?

Do you want to get ill
Do you want to get old
Do you want to be insane, do you want to live in pain
Do you want to have to save for your funeral coat
Do you want a quiet life
Do you want to pretend
Do you want to get by, want to be blind
Do you want to have removed from your view what offends

Do you want to go round, and around and around
Do you want to go round and round, round and round
Till you can't get out, out of the ground

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Are you ready?

Do you want to be saved
Do you want peace of mind
Do you want to belong, do you want to be loved
Do you want to believe in the words that are right
Do you want to get out
Do you want to give in
Do you want to be contained, want to be restrained
Want to be enforced by the laws that are made

Do you want to go round, and around and around
Do you want to go round and round, round and round
Till you can't get out, out of the ground

[Chorus:Repeat x4]

Are you ready? [Repeat x7]

Are you motherfuckin' ready?

    General CommentYay, first to comment.

    I think it's pretty obvious that this song is about the daily struggle of life with the laws/prices/restraints that the Government has placed.

    Basically, they're saying, do you wanna go in a circle until you're dead or do you want to break through all of the crap that are placed to keep you paying and working and struggling and just party?
