So Many Rules InThis Game

So Many Rules In This Game

The story never seems to change
Like it was cast in stone

A different lover most every day
But you still live your life all alone
Your main obsession is just to be
The master of your own fate
Nothing will ever tame your heart
No love could be that great

But soon the night will come closin’ in
Like a thousand nights before

And the siren song that haunts your soul
Won't be silent anymore

Cause life comes with no guarantees
And no honor to be preserved

God have mercy on the gypsy souls

Who get just what they deserve

(CHORUS)

So many spirits in disarray

So many reasons to give up the fight

So many lies that smother your soul

So many shadows crowding out the light
So many words left unspoken

So many lovers in so much pain

So many promises lyin’ in the dust

So many rules in this game

There will be another lover tonight
Another famous one night stand
Another empty escapade

In your played-out Promised Land
But life comes with no guarantees
And no honor to make you pure

God have mercy on all fallen Angels
And all the sins they must endure
