Games People Play Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Face in the Mirror (4:47)
she sees her face in the mirror
eyes surrounded in black
see the girl but don't fear her
she's too high attack
and her eyes are blue
they fill up with sorrow
she looks straight at you
she can't tomorrow

face in the mirror
face in the mirror
what have you done?

she sees blood on her fingers
I see fear in her eyes
she's changin'. she's changin'
see her bleached-out skin
she's cryin', she's dyin'
she can never win

and her eyes see truth
they fill up with sorrow
she looks straight at you
she won't see tomorrow

she gave in temptation
she just wanted to feel
she's at her destination
now it's all so surreal

that face in the mirror
lookin' back on you
that face always tell the truth

face in the mirror
what have you done?
face in the mirror
2. Way Down (5:11)
there's an old man on a high chair
in the name of Jesus Christ
keep on preachin' that religion
though the past has often lied
sold his faith but could not face anyone
sold us hope but couldn't change what's been done

way down, way down deep in his eyes
how long, how long can he conceal the lies?

flew his jet to De Janeiro
to deliver peace of mind
kneels to kiss the burnin' pavement
all his hypocrites behind
tries to fake his way as God's only son
full of shit! you just can't fool everyone

way down, way down deep in his eyes
how long, how long can he conceal the lies?

tries to fake his way as God's only son
full of shit! you just can't fool everyone

way down, way down deep in his eyes
how long, how long can he conceal the lies?
way down, way down
3. Keep Your Eye on the Twisted (3:30)
turn on the blue, what do I see?
a bunch of hateful people talking to me
the crap they say's been heard before
and that's what started up the 2nd World War!

so many people see what's going on
heads should be lifted

keep your eyes on the twisted
we've seen it all before
little minds can't be shifted
watch out they're back for more

they call it pride to wave the flag
shaving the hair off of their brainless heads
I think the world has seen enough
there's too much talking now it's time to get tough

too many people see what's going on
heads should be lifted

keep your eyes on the twisted
we've seen it all before
little minds can't be shifted
watch out they're back for more

hey twisted - what's in your head - so twisted
hey twisted - go clear your mind - you're misled

steps should be taken to stop what they're makin
heads should be lifted... to see what's going on

they spread their mental disease
ignorance needs a leader to make their mass increase

so keep your eyes on the twisted..
4. Somedays I Sail (4:58)
so slow anywhere the wind can blow
how it does I'll never know
and it never crossed my mind
red wine - can't you see I'm feelin' fine
smokin' with a friend of mine
leavin' our troubles far behind

lookin' out my window I find
there's a place beyond space and time
and then I sail
somedays I sail

downtown, gonna see who's hangin' out
good to see them all unwound
guess you know the way I feel
somedays I just gotta sail away
tell me why I should stay
life is really no big deal

lookin' out my window I find
there's a place beyond space and time
and then I sail
somedays I sail

in a world that's soon out of time
I release my soul and my mind
and I know my way I will find
and then I sail
somedays I sail
sailin' out on a memory
somedays I sail
5. Shattered (3:59)
freeze a second, hold the moment
stop the hand of time
just a word, a thought is spoken
says my love was blind

now I stand all alone and wonder
why there's tears in my eyes
it's a spell that I been under
once again - don't know why

listen up, you better not talk
save your lies, I can't hear 'em no more

you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
shattered my pride
met your goal
you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
scattered pieces
you shattered my soul

Someday you were the one to count on,
You were friend and romance
All I hope is you burn your fingers
When you need someone's hand

listen up, you better not talk
save your lies, I can't hear 'em no more

you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
shattered my pride
met your goal
you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
scattered pieces
you shattered my soul

listen up, you better not talk
just shut up, go take a walk
listen up, you better not talk
save your lies, I can't hear 'em no more

you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
shattered my pride
met your goal
you shattered my heart
you shattered my soul
scattered pieces
you shattered my soul
6. Monday Again (3:11)
I spent my weekend blasted
out of my head
5:30 Monday morning
get out of my bed
old lady's out in the kitchen
bitchin' till I go insane
yes it's Monday, Monday again
yes it's Monday again

I stand in line, it's raining
my bus is late
elbow my way through crowds of people I hate
nobody pays attention
nobody knows my name
yes it's Monday, Monday again
yes it's Monday again

sit hypnotised by a computer
chained, I'm a slave to time
five days to go before there's freedom
I got the weekend on my mind
listen I'm sick of rejection
damn, how I wish I could say
no more Mondays, Mondays again
no more Mondays again
7. Dyin' Century (4:38)
termination
frustration
can't change the world we see
turn daylight
to darkness
the 20th century
dyin' century

see the devil with a look in his eye
laughin' at us and we all know why
got his eye on a big victory
dyin' century

walkin' in a world desolation
livin' in the waste of every nation
don't cry when it's all history
dyin' century

expiration
starvation
on your prime time tv
pure madness
brings sadness
the 20th century
dyin' century

see the devil with a look in his eye
laughin' at us and we all know why
got his eye on a big victory
dyin' century

walkin' in a world desolation
livin' in the waste of every nation
don't cry when it's all history
dyin' century

termination
expiration

see the devil with a look in his eye
laughin' at us and we all know why
got his eye on a big victory
dyin' century

walkin' in a world desolation
livin' in the waste of every nation
don't cry when it's all history
dyin' century

now the devil is you and I
we're so blind now we can't even cry
have you heard the voice of history?
dyin' century
8. Till You're Mine (3:42)
there's a girl from the far side of town
I tell you man, she's all I've been missing
got some bucks and her feet on the ground
she's so fine, I can't get her off my mind

I've got the time, she's got a place
I want to see her in black lace
I'm not her kind, but I don't mind
I gotta get her

girl, I can't stop till you're mine
till you're mine, till you're mine
girl, I can't stop till you're mine

home alone and I pick up the phone
I take a chance and dial her number
all she said was the name of her street
with a smile - you know where I'm gonna go

we've got time, we've got a place
I'm gonna see her in that lace
am I her kind? well, never mind
I'm gonna have her!

girl, I can't stop till you're mine
till you're mine, till you're mine
girl, I can't stop till you're mine
I'll keep tryin' till you're mine

I gotta get her
I gotta make her mine
shouldn't be long now
baby, I won't stop all you're mine

girl, I can't stop till you're mine...
9. Still Alive (4:56)
intoxication, running through this veins
he feels cold, is he insane?
deep in his brain the knows it all
but can't explain

running on empty, almost out of bread
giving all that he's got, taking all he can get
feels the end is near as the foreign dreamlands disappear

now he's back again, blind with open eyes
still alive, still alive
leaving once again, can he still deny
he's still alive, still alive

wish you could see him as he slowly dies
to the shame and pain
we close our eyes and pass by
but the end is near
and we know it's his world that we fear

now he's back again, blind with open eyes
still alive, still alive
leaving once again, can he still deny
he's still alive, still alive

see how we got through the stages
soon we'll be turning the pages
still alive, still alive
need is a hurting desire
life is a walk through the fire
still alive, still alive

intoxication, running through his veins
10. Down on Your Luck (4:13)
in a time when the world seems unstable
feels like the worst has the best of you and nothing goes right
cause you're not alone
have you ever seen hunger?
or have you ever seen anyone with nothing at all
take a look at the one or the other
there's only one thing I can say
you're not down on your luck
down on your luck
take some time to look around
got no reason to be down
so down on your luck
down on your luck
might be rainin' in your bed
but you've got a place to lay your head down

you're a man not a shell made of crystal
you could be broken in pieces but you mend back again
and you'll always have somebody waitin' for you to come home
got a life, got your mind and your body
there's so much more that you can say
so you're not down on your luck
down on your luck
take some time to look around
got no reason to be down
so down on your luck
down on your luck
might be rainin' in your bed
but you've got a place to lay your head down

you're not under pressure
your life is so long
always got something to say
fear no destruction
you just can't go wrong
lucky to be here today

so you're not down on your luck
down on your luck
11. Backflash (0:58)
[instrumental]
12. Condemnation (4:29)
wise men say
listen to your heart
don't throw your dreams away
mad men play
with power and they say
blow those fools away

we don't need power play people
they piss me off

we don't need condemnation
we're not breakin' the law
we don't need condemnation
leave us alone

fools have shown
what everyone had known
and all have known the truth
lovers fight
they lie to make it right
the truth can sometimes hurt

we don't need power play people
they piss me off

we don't need condemnation
we're not breakin' the law
we don't need condemnation
leave us alone

you don't have time
so open up your mind
no two think the same
let them be
maybe then they'll see
there's no one to blame

we don't need power play people
they piss me off

we don't need condemnation
we're not breakin' the law
we don't need condemnation
leave us alone
13. Don't Let it All Come Down (3:32)
if the night falls like a hammer
hits a nail into your soul
if the rain beats on your window
and you lose control
hold your tears back for a moment
light a candle to the night
al you gotta do is call me
and I'll arrive

don't ever let it all come down on you
why don't you open up your eyes and see
don't ever let it all come down on you
'cause you got me
why don't you open up your eyes and see

take a ride into the future
come with me to wonderland
can you see us when we're older
walkin' hand in hand
so the sun don't shine forever
but you're not alone tonight
and I'll be here with you tomorrow
in the morning light

don't ever let it all come down on you
why don't you open up your eyes and see
don't ever let it all come down on you
'cause you got me
why don't you open up your eyes and see

don't ever let it all come down on you
why don't you open up your eyes and see
don't ever let it all come down on you
'cause you got me
why don't you open up your eyes and see
