I've always been your favorite game
And all the world's your sparkling stage
Just another extra in your play, the fool

I'm ready for your drama
You're throwing every hook tonight
Your charismatic lines make tears run down their cheeks
I've lost the only thing I need
Here's to the plaintiff
And now you're taking her away

I've always been your favorite game
And all the world's your spot-lit stage
Just another extra in your play, your fool

(Pull out the pin)
Fallen a bomb grenade now
(Don't shoot, don't shoot)
I'm just a kid like you
We fight for billionaires who bomb our city streets
To find a use for corporate green
Here's to the propaganda
And then they take your life away

I've always been your favorite game
And all the world's your spot lit stage
Just another extra in your play
x2

And now that war has been declared,
How long until bombs burst in air
We've come too far
Just to let this die, to throw this away

I've always been your favorite game
And all the world's your spot-lit stage
Just another extra in your play
x2

    General CommentIt's not "sparkling stage" it's "spot-lit stage" :)
    For the meaning;
    Well, this song is directed to his wife. Who left him for hi best friend, leaving him with their six-year old daughter. Which we learned in "You're All I Have" was the one one thing that held him together. And because he was blamed for arision the took her. "And now you're taking her away".
