Chess In Concert – Pity The Child #1 lyrics

I'm not the kind
To be vindictive
Holding some childish grudge.
How could I be?
I'm in the spotlight
Half of the world my judge.

All I demand
Is those I work for,
Those I give all my skills
All my time, and pain,
Those that I entertain.
Give me the same
Compassion in return
But the fools never learn.

    This is Freddie finally realising that he has lost everything his title and Florence and him saying that what he has done is not him being vindictive but him being too long in the spot light with his every move being watch with him giving all he has to chess but the people who watch him don't give him the same compassion as he gives chess.
