Song Lyrics: The Chess Game

“(VERSE 1)

Prepare for the game

That you are forced to play

Sided on the white side

Even if you prefer the black one

Surrounded by other pawns

Whose innocence won’t save their minds

Get ready for the battle

Because you are about to suffer

First move

Someone pushes you

You don’t know what’s going on

But you don’t complain, no

You have been trained to be a good pawn

To lie and scam

Yet, you weren’t told about the rules

You don’t know you are about to enter a real mess

(CHORUS)

Welcome to the chess game

It won’t be a fair play

64 squares to explore

An eternity to do so

You are just one of the 16 pieces

Don’t ever think you are special

Remember the queen is the powerful figure

And you only exist to serve her needs

Pawn, pawn, pawn, stupid pawn

So naïve and young

One day you will learn

But till that, welcome to the chess game

(VERSE 2)

Many minutes have passed

Time really flies

Against the odds, you remain strong

The bishops and knights await behind you

Your sacrifice will be their freedom

Meanwhile you ignore the deceiving rooks

Who make the sharpest moves

And create the most hurtful wounds

Another push, this time by your own mind

You swear you know what you are doing

Fatal threats taught you to be calculated

You think you are staying safe

And you don’t foresee the bad outcome

That other pawns will pay with their lives

While the rules keep changing

And you are forced to keep up and don’t look back

(CHORUS)

Welcome to the chess game

It won’t be a fair play

64 squares to explore

An eternity to do so

You are just one of the 16 pieces

Don’t ever think you are special

Remember the queen is the powerful figure

And you only exist to serve her needs

Pawn, pawn, pawn, stupid pawn

So naïve and young

One day you will learn

But till that, welcome to the chess game

(BRIDGE)

The board is now nearly empty

Most figures have been eliminated

None of the teams are winning

Yet the clock keeps ticking

You are the queen’s last paw

You protected her through everything

But finally you realised

It wasn’t worth it all

You finally see

The power she has isn’t love

And you regret all the time and effort lost

You just want to disappear

You want to quit playing

You pray to be eliminated

But nobody hears your prayers

It is too late, stupid pawn

Stupid pawn

(CHORUS)

Welcome to the chess game

It won’t be a fair play

64 squares to explore

An eternity to do so

You are just one of the 16 pieces

Don’t ever think you are special

Remember the queen is the powerful figure

And you only exist to serve her needs

Pawn, pawn, pawn, stupid pawn

So naïve and young

One day you will learn

But till that, welcome to the chess game

Pawn, pawn, pawn, stupid pawn

So naïve and young

One day you will learn

But till that, welcome to the chess game”
