lyrics for Dirty Game by Mission Man

“Dirty Game”
 
Chorus: It’s a dirty game you’re playing
It’s a dirty thing you’re saying
I’m tired of your mind games
That’s why I’m not going nine frames

(second layer of Chorus: it's a dirty dirty dirty dirty game dirty game, it's a dirty dirty dirty dirty game)
 
The only luck that’s not involved
It’s the toss of a coin and what’s called
It doesn’t matter if you win that game
Breaking or waiting you know it’s all the same
It doesn’t matter
The whole world shatters
And as it scatters
You wait to see what remains
And how to cause pain
You create an ally just to stab him in the back
You make him execute most of the attack
Sometimes you’re battling with the opposite gender
But that doesn’t change what’s on your agenda
As you pretend to
Botch up what you’re doing
You leave your opponent in ruin
It’s psychological warfare
Your stare
Is more fair
If it isn’t blank
Regardless of your rank
There’s no feeling of thanks
Even if you’re outwardly grateful
The demise and despise in your eyes is hateful
Good guys don’t finish last
They get cast
Aside
As their eyes go wide
And you give a smile that’s full of pride
 
Chorus: X2
 
They’re still sitting in shock
Just staring at the clock
As the night deepens
And the light seeps in
To the ground that devours it
And the sound that empowers it
The thought of swimming in gold
And fortunes untold
The wolf cries
As the boy dies
Your next opponent is slain
By your brain
You can’t win by using your soul
You lost that when you were 19 years old
And born into this lifestyle
It’s been two years since you saw your wife smile
I’ll make a wager that you’ll never agree to
My honesty is what you’ll see through
I guess it’s too late for you
So I’ll have to save me
And maybe
My soul won’t die
Because of what I try
 
Chorus: X2
 
I prefer my games to be based on skill
Pure in my heart so I can have the will
To keep playing
Staying
Ahead of the game and
Taming
Some of my desires
To play with those fires
I don’t care about the gamble
It’s the way you leave the shambles
As you trample
All over the green
The very heart of the game is mean
Can you paint me a different scene
I don’t think so, so I will stay clean
 
Chorus: X2
Ending: It’s a dirty dirty dirty dirty game dirty game
It’s a dirty dirty dirty dirty game
