So enter this life and choose the squares
Where you really want to stand
So start ticking time and mark the end
So I know when it dies
So I know the aim
I love the feverish tickle that gets me
When all again - and again - is set to fall
When they think they've been running for ages
On and on
But hardly moved a square at all
Now sleep my pawn - to play the game
The game that all of you have come to see
The game that's played for you alone - me alone?
And be amused how it struggles on - and on
Enter the lies - on to the stage!
And close your eyes - go on - be born!
