This games been played before
73 times won
The faster you die, faster you lose
Life's the prize for one

Children wielding weapons, cutting short a life
Cameras see it all
But we're they enemies or were they friends?
Gotta make it through somehow

5... 4... 321!

The arena! The arena! This is our world stage
The arena! The arena! This is our death cage
Cannons in the distance! The distance!
Silver parachutes descend
You've been spared for now but for how long?
When will all this end?

Watch out for the careers, murders in their veins
Cato, Clove, and Glimmer
Survive and thrive on pain

All that's left are the eyes, twisted muttations
Risen from the dead
Born to kill, bred to die
But they all bleed all the same

5... 4... 321!

The arena! The arena! This is our world stage
The arena! The arena! This is our death cage
Cannons in the distance! The distance!
Silver parachutes descend
You've been spare for now but for how long?
When will all this end?

No allies or teams
Only their screams
No allies nor teams

5... 4... 321!

The arena! The arena! This is our world stage
The arena! The arena! This is our death cage
Cannons in the distance! The distance!
Silver parachutes descend
You've been spare for now but for how long?
When will all this end?
