  • Song Lyrics:
    Did you buy your tickets for the war game?
    Aren't you glad that your sitting in the back?
    For the game is deadly having all the players
    Aren't you glad it's a spectator sport

    Can't you hear the cries?
    It isn't over
    Can't you smell the fear?
    It's all over

    If you want to play the game, you must have playmates
    Choose your side play guitar (? ? ? ) but play to win
    Don't be sad if you lose it isn't over
    Pick your side and begin the game again, it isn't over

    Can't you hear the cries?
    It isn't over
    Can't you smell the fear?
    It's all over

    You don't have to play the game if you don't want to
    You can sit at home and hear it on the news
    They will show you colored pictures of the killings
    They want you to feel that you're part of it too.

    Can't you hear the cries?
    It isn't over
    Don't you smell the fear?
    It's all over
    It's all over
