Chorus – Fool’s Game

Life’s great fight

Verse 1

When your sights

Are set to reach the top

The lens will mist

And the dream must stop

Verse 2

The jokes on you

When the lies all cease

And the life that you lead

Will be hell not peace

Verse 3

When you walk the streets

With your head held up high

Then that’s’ the time

The cheat inside must die

Verse 4

When your sights

Are set to reach the top

The lens will mist

And the dream must stop

Verse 5

Just dig in deep

With all of your might

And carry on looking through

Life’s long, long sight

Outro

There’s a song to sing

If the time is right

But don’t be subject to

Life’s great fight
