lyrics

1.Checkmate

Mt battle for simmetry
My road to success
Led me to banality
Addictive distress

Antipositional moves
Played by my weak hand
I became the exposed king
A fool in command

So it´s time to clear my name
Redefine rules of my game – Checkmate! (2x)
Now the pieces are all set
It´s a choice of no regret – Checkmate! (2x)

I was given sympathy
And love in a foul play
Easily blockaded
I was led astray

My dreams were crushed in a game
Of short duration
All my plans were ruined by
Miscalculation

So it´s time to clear my name
Redefine rules of my game – Checkmate! (2x)
Now the pieces are all set
It´s a choice of no regret – Checkmate! (2x)

I will endure
I´ll find the cure
Wipe the blood from my face
Irascible
And tactical
I shall regain my space
My remotion
My promotion
A woodpusher no more
More sensible
Defensible
Ready to win the war

My army will march again
straight from the back rank
I´ll pursue my focal point
Your vulnerable flank

Time to face and counterattack
All that I´ve done wrong
Like a bare king on the board
I must move along

So it´s time to clear my name
Redefine rules of my game – Checkmate! (2x)
Now the pieces are all set
It´s a choice of no regret – Checkmate! (2x)
