"Checkmate" as written by Mike Kaufmann, Matt Vander Van Der Ende, Doug Harrington, Jim Adams and Esquivel,....
The kings and queens send their pawns off to war
An unfair law upheld in the years before
They take a life from a child and their dreams
Imagine people never even stop to think

Back many years - Checkmate
They believe to kill - Checkmate
There was no law - Checkmate
They killed at will - Checkmate
Medieval torture - Checkmate
Now begins - Checkmate
Man to follow - Checkmate
Many to hang - Checkmate
Checkmate - Checkmate

People die still, some at their youth
No one knows why 'cause there never is no truth
Romans believe to send their children off to war
Retaliation, continuation of the war

Retaliation of the war
Some people die still, some still at their youth
No one knows why, there is no truth
Romans believe to send their children off to war
Retaliation, continuation of the war

Checkmate !.......
The kings and queens send their pawns off to war
An unfair law upheld in the years before
To take the life from a child and their dreams
Imagine people never even stop to think
