"Roll if Ya Fall" as written by and John Driscoll William Benoit....
Lately the sun is castin' shadow over me
So come on and take me by the hand,
Lead me through the trouble waters of the sea
So maybe you got a halo over your head all the time
As for me, all I need is this rhythm for movin'
Cause you know, I keep kickin' it live, yea

Can I get a witness?
To defend my case
No I won't get caught up
In the corporate rat race
Well all I got's this commitment
And behind it I'll stand tall
If flat shadows get me down
I'ma roll if I fall

So step back for a moment
To analyze all that you've achieved
And tell me was it what you wanted?
(Was it what you wanted?)
Did it make you happy?
(Did it make you happy?)
Or had you been decieved?

And if you have still yet to understand this theme
Well plain and simple
Don't live somebody else's dream
Don't you know the sea will surely come again
And the stars will fill the sky
Well it's a simple inspiration
But it always blows my mind, yea

Well can i get a witness?
To present my plea
And no I won't fall victim
To this animosity
All they can teach you
Is the writin' on the wall
I'm gonna cut my strings free
And I'ma roll if I fall

You know I'll roll if I fall..

Cause it's a simple inspiration
It always gets me high
It's a familiar disposition
I can see it in your eyes
It's the beauty of a new sunrise
You can never see one the same
And when we add the score at the end of this life,
Wanna say I won the game

It's the simple inspiration
It always gets me by
It's a familiar disposition
I swear I see it in your eyes
It's the beauty of a new sunrise
You can never see one the same
And when we add the score at the end of this life,
Wanna say I won the game

It's the simple inspiration
It always gets me high
It's a familiar disposition
I swear I see it in your eyes
It's the beauty of a new sunrise
You can never see one the same
And when we add the score at the end of this life,
I Wanna say I won the game (x4)

Yea bring it back, yea

    General CommentWow I can't believe no one has commented on this song. It's really good.

    I think it's just about following your own dreams instead of the plans that someone else, or just society in general, has seemed to set for you. And if things aren't going great, just roll with it. Every day is a new day to start changing your life for the better. Live for yourself and make the most of your life and you'll be happy in the end.

    I love the line, "When we add the score at the end of this life, wanna say I won the game."

    General CommentI love this song, I found it on Pandora Radio.

    I think the song is encouraging independence, for people to follow their own dreams. And if something goes wrong, don't let it keep you down a second. Roll with the punches. You'll end up happier than everybody else anyway.
