Life is a game

At the end you're still going to get the blame

It doesn't matter if you want to play

You'll still get tricked into saying okay

People do things

Which bind them in return with strings

When they finally break through, their heart gets hit with regret

No wonder why they rather forget

We trust people without thinking

It's so careless that we end up fleeing

We hope our running will make us free

When we know at the end, we'll end up at that same tree

We keep going back

Hoping we're ready for the next attack

We lookout for the unknown enemy

When they're standing right there acting friendly

As soon as we turn around

They get ready for a rebound

Falling down, shattered into pieces

We thought we had put up all the braces

Swallowed into a hole of darkness

Back into the castle of mistress

When will we escape?

From our own mistakes?

Trust isn't something to give

But something to earn

It isn't a piece of candy

Given to anyone who makes us happy

We get trapped in our own puzzles

Built from our own troubles

We blame others for our misdeeds

Like they're the ones who plant our seeds

Life is a game

At the end you're still going to get the blame

It doesn't matter if you want to play

You'll still get tricked into saying okay

Phony smiles and showering compliments

That's exactly how they play

They use you for their accomplishments

All you need to say is okay

To get into their game of lies

As soon as they get their prize

They'll leave you without a goodbye

Leaving you all alone to die
