Play God

  • You were crackin' all your fingers
    With your eyes fixed to the floor
    Sound had echoed down the street
    By the monument you hear
    Man is screamin' through a megaphone
    "Get your hands off the Middle East"
    Every word would herd the cynical
    Every word would cut your teeth

    And he will play God
    And he will play God

    It's all the same down in the capital
    All the suits and claddered feet
    Sewer rats will shower the underground
    In a race to make ends meet

    And he will play God
    And he will play God

    Am I mistaken, or are we breakin'
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?
    Am I mistaken, or are we breakin'
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?

    He will play God

    No matter who you are or where you've been
    He is watchin' from a screen
    Keeps a keen eye on the in-between
    From the people to the Queen

    And he will play God
    He will play God

    Am I mistaken, or are we breakin'
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?
    Am I mistaken, or are we breakin'
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?

    He will play God
    He will play God
    He will play God
    He will play God Writer/s: Sam Fender
