Head Games

by Chris Sorrenti


Head games head games
Do you want to kick me?
Head games head games
Put me on my knees?
Head games head games
Would you like to see me cry?
Head games head games
Die without a sound?

God won't you tell me
Where it all went wrong
Be kind to someone
Let your guard down
And just because
You have a nicer looking face
They want to bury you in the ground

Head games head games
Do you want to choke me?
Head games head games
Walk all over me?
Head games head games
Would you like to see me destitute?
Crippled and diseased?

You try so hard to get along
With every one every day
But there's always that little devil
In the crowd
Watching your every move
Heaven help you sincerely my friend
If you make one small mistake

Head games head games
Do you want to kick me?
Head games head games
Put me on my knees?
Head games head games
Would you like to see me cry?
Head games head games
Or would you prefer it
If I'd never been born?

And there's nothing more for me to say
You're going to do it anyway
So maybe it’s time I learned to play
My own
Head games head games

Head games!
