Wonder and complete surprise
It's all seen through those eyes
Tired, lonely and afraid
Every card's been played

So where do we go? And what should we do?
And why is the table set for two?
Is the answer in the question? I need some more direction/suggestions
Was the answer in the question all along?

Love, hate, life and certain death
All in just one breath
Mixed up, straight down, opened, closed down
Created, then unwound

    the stuff i put in this post, besides the actual quotes from the song, is just how I took it. maybe its not what MxPx meant at all by the words... but heres what it meant to me: "So where do we go?" (to God) "And what should we do?" (always ask Him for help with whatever) "And why is the table set for two?" ('set for two' kind of just saying its meant to be me and God togeather) im not sure if it helped you any, honestyormystery, but i tried to say what i got ... hope i helped a bit...

    i think this song could be about not knowing what to do next, maybe in a relationship or just in life. "so where do we go, what do we do??" he's kinda wondering what to do. "is the answer in the question?..." he's thinking hey, maybe the answer is really obvious and easy to figure out. i dunno, thats my guess the end

    so here's what i'm thinkin... bottom line, he's confused. he's unsure where to go or what to do about a situation. he wonders if the answer that he's struggling to find was in front of his face the whole time (hence "answer in the question") also i kinda think that bit hints at a tendency to overanalyze things, which i can relate to. "christalena" i think you have an interesting idea with the God reference, but honestly i don't think that's what it's about although i am a christian. i just think it's all too broad to warrant such a specific interpretation anyways, that's what i think...great song from an amazing band
