Another tune written and recorded in regards to the political climate of 2017.
That's some deep hurt you're in.
You're trying hard now to cover yourself.
Away from the heat
To not be plucked from the shelf.
Who is going to tell it all?
When the dominos start to fall?
Who'll be left to pick-up the ball?
The man with a mind so small?
His reckless team of know-it-alls?
They'll be running for cover soon.
And looking for others to blame.
It seems such a shame, but
You're only a pawn in the game.
Where has your integrity gone?
Lost in the shadows
Of the government halls
Or left swinging from the gallows
In some small town run-down mall?
And the loss of all ethics
By all of the hypocrites
Outside the temple walls.
Standing like egrets in the blood-stained shallows.
The people's blood is there
They are the innocents that care
And believed in your messiah
But now betrayed and left hollow.
It's always the same,
You're just another fool.
Another pawn in the game.
You've done yourself in.
Get ready to take it on the chin.
You wore out your welcome at the inaugural ball.
Our leaders have marked you to take the fall.
It used to be so simple, you say.
The movement through the territories.
The dogs that followed you through the snow.
You've got to harden yourself to take the blow.
Steel your mind for what's coming soon.
Squaring off to die at noon,
And hoping that you pull-up lame.
It's always so plain.
You're just another tool.
Just another pawn in the game.
