I am just a pawn
Dancing over doubled tones
Everything is right or wrong
The kings are watching from their thrones
Castle gates and horses heads
Here none of us bleed red
Kill 'em all, take no enemies
Bring that good white queen to her knees

On the checks our swords are drawn
Heads held high as we battle on
This is a fight for wrong and right
Everything here is black and white

Tell me knight what side you're on
To fighting alongside this poor pawn
Battle worn over age old laws
But do you really believe in your cause?
A split second decision's made
The bishop pulls a glistening blade
The queen stands, crown held high
Dashing towards her husbands side

Clutching at her chest, an open wound
The martyred queen comes to her doom
Troops stand by with swords held high
Uphold vanity while their queen dies
Black and white and sacrifice
The board's now tinted red
Sacrificed for the greater good
The good white queen is dead
