I know it isn't easy to refuse,
A lot of thoughts are flying through your head,
Tell me this before you have to choose,
Would you rather be alive or dead?

It's as simple as that, (simple as that)
Would you rather be alive or dead?
It's as simple as that, (simple as that)
It's so simple, it makes you wanna cry.

They ask you if you wanna join in,
You linger for a minute or so.
Well, now's the perfect time to begin,
Are you gonna say "yes" or "no"?

It's as simple as that, (simple as that)
Are you gonna say "yes" or "no"?
It's as simple as that, (simple as that)
It's so simple, it makes you wanna cry.

And if you love your life,
Ev'rybody will love you too.
Yes, if you love your life,
Ev'rybody will love you too.
It's harder when you start getting 'round,
(it's harder when you start getting 'round)
I want you to remember what I said,
(i want you to remember what I said)
I know you never like to let 'em down,
But would you rather be live or dead?

It's as simple as that, (it's as simple as that)
Would you rather be alive or dead?
It's as simple as that, (simple as that)
It's so simple, it makes you wanna cry.
So simple, makes you wanna cry.

Yes, if you love your life,
Ev'rybody will love you too.
And if you love your life,
Well, ev'rybody will love you too.

Do you rather be alive or dead?
(you rather be alive or dead?)
Rather be alive or dead?
(you rather be alive or dead?)
It's as simple as that, (it's as simple as that)
It's as simple as that, (it's as simple as that)
It's as simple as that, (it's as simple as that)
Simple as that,
Simple as that.

And if you love your life,
Ev'rybody will love you too.
Ow!
Yes, if you love your life,
Ev'rybody will love you too.

And if you love,
And if you love,
And if you love,

Ooh, do you rather be alive or dead?
(do you rather be alive or dead?)
Would you rather be alive or dead?
(would you rather be alive or dead?)
It's as simple as that, ( simple as that)
It's as simple as that, (it's as simple as that)
Oh, it's as simple as that.

Yeah.
