In the heat of the day,

I just wanted everyone to go away.

Because when I heard my name,

I knew I was going into the game.

And just like the rest,

I tried my hardest to impress.

But it wasn't enough.

 

Costumes and glitter,

Blood and blisters,

And I want to go home.

Crying and weeping,

And I am not sleeping,

Because I am alone.

 

(Chorus)

I don't want to be a part of this game,

But I guess I'm already in it.

I don't want to say good-bye,

So I guess I'm going to have to win it.

Is that sky really blue, or is it just another fake.

I cannot sleep, I am wide-awake.

I hear the crying, of the dying.

I don't want the fame,

I just want to get out of this game.

 

In the dank of the night,

My body shook with fright.

Because when I heard them come,

I thought that I was done.

And just like the rest,

I put on my defense.

But now that they are dead,

Their screams are forever in my head.

 

(Chorus)

I don't want to be a part of this game,

But I guess I'm already in it.

I don't want to say good-bye,

So I guess I'm going to have to win it.

Is that sky really blue, or is it just another fake.

I cannot sleep, I am wide-awake.

I hear the crying, of the dying.

I don't want the fame,

I just want to get out of this game.
