The Ego Game

This song is by Closterkeller and appears on the album Graphite (English Version) (1999).

Why did this gambit lead to the endgame
What's wrong? My anger pushed those words out when
The backstage curtain went up in flames
And tears were moved to where the gestures were

In the ego game we are playing
One easy strategy is to capture all
But if you want to win
This game must be drawn

We'll have it the way the grandmasters play
Hands off, and don't you dare to look away!
You threaten the pawn with your king; and hear "Checkmate!"
But in this game you cannot move back, the rules say

In the ego game we are playing
One easy strategy is to capture all
But if you want to win
This game must be drawn

This is a game of minds as well as of hearts;
You didn't lose a piece - but does that mean you won?
Now you're alone, is that what you've been hoping for?
Now the queen is playing on someone else's board
