lyrics

ALL GAMES (Contain the Idea of Death)With the Numerous Cat
by L. ScatterBrain and StevenPol


You can’t win if you don’t play,
and if you can’t win for losin’ then it’s better if you don’t lay
your bets down, as bad as it gets now
It could get worse, you could get hurt
or get a hearse as your transport
eight heads in my jansport
make me a winner, on the food chain you’re just a dinner
a light snack or a food stain on a splinter
for toothpickin’, I’ll kick him in the crotch
useless as a victim, like diamonds stickin’ on a watch
Luxurious greed as motivation
is just the sustenance to feed this generation
if that’s what gets you up in the morning
You might lose friends, nobody’s coming for the mourning
Should you fear the grim referee
there’s experience to learn and the lesson will be
experience you earn and rest of it be…
All games contain the idea of death
the line separates “breathe easy” and “taking your last breath”
So watch your step
instead of playing for keeps, you could be paying for what’s kept (X2)
(SP) It’s a contest for the fittest of survival/
Where the chance to live ultimately becomes a title/
you take from a rival/ It’s a trophy you wear it like a badge/
Until the probability of winning becomes bad/
Slim like facing the serrated edge of a knife/
Grim like killing your competitors who challenge you to a duel/
Giving you enough fuel for you to strike/
When the opportunity is ripe for the picking/
It’s amazing what people will do for the winning/
Gripping and snatching limited resources for the champ/ To make you the chimp/
Below the level of advantage you’re shrimp/ In the Net with The rest to be eaten/
So prepare for the consequences before your beaten/
down By the one who had the trap set/
So Kick Back relax and smoke a cigarette/ Cause all Games Contain the idea of this!!!
All games contain the idea of death
the line separates “breathe easy” and “taking your last breath”
so watch your step
instead of playing for keeps, you could be paying for what’s kept (X2)
Sudden death overtime, three strikes you’re out
Massacre on the court, martial art, blood sport, with no doubt
beyond the shadow of the spec-
-ulation is the makings of every regret
The game exists, to train the brain to take the pain
or agony, the same as losing when playing
and it’s plain to see you came to be
an athlete or a hero in every degree
But severance be, lurking just below
quick to grab the appendages of those who walk too slow
The element of risk, is the cement that builds
a climactic cohesion in respect to skills
Stuck to the edge of your seat, as tension fills
the room, like doom, going in for the kill
Suspense is pretense, for the danger exists
for all games contain the idea of this…
All games contain the idea of death
the line separates “breathe easy” and “taking your last breath”
so watch your step
instead of playing for keeps, you could be paying for what’s kept (X2)
