Just a Game

Lyrics

Why does everything feel setup

Everyday I feel someone laughing at me

Controlling my fate with insane glee

Dropping in front of me people I don't wanna see

It's all just a big game to you

When you cut me open and lick the wound

I have no love for this apparition

That sits above the rest like it's the best

 

But you're no better than me

You can't control me

You just set up the stage

And hope I get enraged

But I'm not playing your game

I'm not playing your game

 

Like a mouse in a maze

You put me in to watch how I get out

But I break down your walls every time

Too many times to count

 

And that's how it'll always be

You'll get nothing from me

I won't succumb to your ugly deeds

My actions will plant the seeds for the rest to see

 

You won't take away my freedom

To change the way I live my life

To choose between forgiveness or strife

What's wrong or right

What's black or white

 

But you're no better than me

You can't control me

You just set up the stage

And hope I get enraged

But I'm not playing your game

I'm not playing your game
