The Game of Life

 

We start out in a white room,
screaming, crying, trying to to understand.
We got our names on an ankle band.
Well, I guess itŐs time to start something new.
Who knows? We could have been different
My bad, we were just ignorant.


Now they say your folks are telling you. Be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied. Stay right where you are.


A man in a monocle, and a top hat,
wearing a black suit, has control.
Our decisions, our lives, our destiny
Is it initially ours to hold?
We see people trying to be bold,
see ŇTryingÓ is the key word.
Trying to make a mark in history.
Trying to make their own reality.


Now they say your folks are telling you. Be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied. Stay right where you are


The folks who made it to fame
ArenŐt the ones to blame, you
Sitting there on your phone are just the same.
You could have been something great,
but instead youŐre going off to some far off land
To learn something you wonŐt understand.


Now they say your folks are telling you. Be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied. Stay right where you are.


Refrain: keep yourself alive--Queen
