Play This Game

Duration: 4:14
  I could be jealous and grasping with greed
  I could pretend that I want something I don't need
  These are the things that go through my head
  But then, I could be an angel disguised as a man
  I could be the sun that shines in the midnight land

  If you would only stand in my corner
  Give that advantage to me
  Don't you feel something?
  You know what I'm thinking but
  I can't set it free
  We must

  Play this game, take the prize
  But not before you realize
  That win or lose, it's all the same
  Then maybe we can play this game

  I can't remember the reason I'm here
  Sometimes it seems like it's all out of habit or fear
  Sometimes I wish I could just go to sleep
  But then, I'll have a dream with a beautiful end
  I'll wake up and feel alive, then I'm off again

  If I could only keep your connection
  Give me whatever remains
  Then I might win you total liberation
  But I can't break these chains
  We must

  Play this game
  Let's pretend that we could never reach the end
  For it would be a crying shame
  If we can't learn to play this game

  Stand in my corner
  Give that advantage to me
  Stand in my corner
  Pull down a message with me
  The answer that evades our brains
  We only think we're wearing chains
