​The Game Is Up

This song is by Attrition and appears on the album Smiling, At The Hypogonder Club (1985).

I've got a feeling
Did somebody see me
This is the season
For saving a life for me
I know what they're thinking
I killed Abraham Lincoln
The game is up

My world
There's somebody leaving
My soul
Is locked inside my memory
Someone is catching up with me
I know what they think of me
I shot John F. Kennedy
The game is up

It's been a long time
Such a long time
Can you know the reason
Do you believe your mind
It's been a long time
Such a long time
The aim was so high
But I did not survive
The game is up.

I felt so lonely
But they didn't hear me fall
I gave them a reason
To look over the wall
I'd take a life
For another life
And wake another soul
So can they say they really think
That I killed Martin Luther King
The game is up

Kneel down
Put your arms to the ground
And don't look round
And don't make a sound
Lie down
Put your ear to the ground
And don't look round
And don't make a sound.
