Victim of the Game


It took a little time
But I finally learned
that promises get broken
and bridges get burned
You've been sifting through the ashes
Trying to find a flame
Holding on to nothing
You're just a victim of the game.

Standing way too close
To see it all fall apart
There were things you couldn't hear
because you weren't listening to your heart
Now you couldn't say I didn't warn you
There's no one left to blame
There's no one quite as blind
As a victim of the game.

You know it's getting to you
when all you hear is lies
You can listen to your friends
But you cant look them in the eyes
In the shadow of the shame?
Does anybody care
That I'm a Victim of the game?
The end
With all respect,
over and out,
