Then You'Re Not In This Game

Can you,
Really make...
The grade?
In the field
Of doing you to conquer.
Can you,
Take the ball...
Without falling?
And if you did,
Would you stall?
Or get up to make a stand.

Can you,
Minimize a brush with agony?
Or take a pinch or two,
Of self head beating?
Could you take a breath...
And keep on moving.
Beat your chest and let off steam?
Or would you find a way to demean.

Could you,
Get up and run in pain?
Would you give up your goals,
To claim...
Everything you try stays the same.

Can you,
Really make...
The grade?
In the field
Of doing you to conquer.
Would you stop to say its tough...
And what you've got,
Just ain't good enough.
Then you're not in this game to play!
'Cause you're looking for an easier way!
