lyrics

Was long time ago when I had been playing
But never thought I’d be waiting for Death
If I won or I lost, I don’t care
Forget it, checkmate ends the game

“Once the men had to be demigods
Otherwise they would not have invented the chess”

Strategy, a matter of reflection
So the tactic is a matter of perception

Elixir to prolong the life
Cult of wisdom, almost a hymn
To the virtue, the glory and, so, pride
There won’t be such price like enemy’s scalp!

But the things have changed all at once
At the moment I looked to the adversary mate
…No eyes, they’re just full of scrawls
A little child who’s standing the challenge with me
The son I once had!
Blitz game for me!

Do not ever leave your last game
Chessboards not allowed

I had fallen into this fake trap
Death defeated me

The ambush have penalized me with my life
Cause no one overcomes death

Checkmate!!!
