The Game

 

 

Like a castle in the corner, I should have left here long ago

Thereís nowhere left to run and hide and no dice left to throw

No tears of regret, no feelings of doubt

Only something missing, a way to get out

I know now the decision, was taken then in haste

There was no contemplation; we had no time to waste

We knew that we were young then, our reasoning unclear

But those days are lost forever; the price we paid was dear

 

Iíve never pledged allegiance to the cross or to the wall

But now I have the answer to it all

 

The ways of how we suffered, are etched into my brain

A summerís day that wasnít, washed away by rain

And though we lived in silence, with feelings that were cold

The warmth of your sweet body, was there for me to hold

Why do we surrender, to those who do not care?

We were too young to question, but not too young to dare

My queen has long abandoned me, I sit here now alone

I wait here for tomorrow upon an empty throne

 

No Iíve never pledged allegiance to the cross or to the wall

But now I have the answer to it all

 

The game is almost over; I know that I must wait

Whatever comes tomorrow, I leave that now to fate

 

Iíve never pledged allegiance to the cross or to the wall

But now I have the answer to it all
