If I told you
That the crowd was all ears,
Could you find the words to say?
If I told you
You could take home the prize,
Would you know the game to play?

Would you laugh or would you fall to pieces?
Would you lie or would you run?

If I told you
You'd the world on a string,
Could you tell which way to pull?
If I told you
Your life was a glass,
Would you know when it was full?

Would you laugh or would you fall to pieces?
Would you lie or would you run?
Would you fight or would you roll right over?
Would you blaze or fade away?

Creak and crumble
Reel and stumble
Fall to pieces…

Would you laugh or would you fall to pieces?
Would you lie or would you run?
Would you fight or would you roll right over?
Would you blaze or fade away?

    General CommentThis has to be my favourite MaG song ever...I'd have to agree with isza2103 on this...I think it's about someone who is confused about where to go and what to do in life.

    General CommentNo, this song is def a broad address to people who know nothing about the world and themselves. Summed up quickly it is saying, "If I put you on the spot would you have anything to say?"
