Playing Dirty

In this game I tried to play fair, to get what I want right

But as soon as you shed your crocodile tears, you stuck in her sight

You sucked up and overreacted, to win her gullible mind with your act

Played dirty, got blood on your hands, fooled her with fake facts

You acted oh-so clandestine, you lured her into your inescapable trap

Made her believe that you were a harmless, innocent load of crap!

So when I thought up of a way to make all punishment equal

She easily disagreed, pushed you aside, and let me take the fall

I immediately retaliated, but still, I stuck to what was fair and honest

But your sickeningly-sweet words had brainwashed her to take your side

“She was first, she is right, you’re being such a pest

Let her have all the treats, I know she wouldn’t have lied!”

It’s too late, she’s too far gone, indulged in your disgusting promises

And no more words no things I could say could pull her out of this mess

You’ve already made your move, cheated, defended your precious king

Checkmate, I’m done, I’ve lost, you tipped over my own king to win

And now you control her with strings, like a lost puppet with broken links

…Or so you think.

You really think I’d let you get your own crown and castle this easily?

Let you hold forever the sweet and amazing taste of victory?

You were wrong; I’ve thought and planned and tried and tested it all

Let a few couple of useless pawns get sacrificed and fall

Because I know that soon, your overconfidence will lead to your downfall and ruin

You want to play dirty? I’ll play dirtier, so be it, then

Let’s just wait and see who will finally win…
