Edguy – The Headless Game lyrics
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

Longing for silence...
"Always faster" is the way that we go.
Not a little patience...
Higher, farer, better we grow.
The beast is rising, it's tantalizing
Those who are taking the time.
Alienation... A revelation...
Straight to the end of the line...

The cold chill you feel
Is no dream it's for real
We don't follow

Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.
Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.

Cast out from Eden...
You don't like what we are in your eyes.
We're leading the treason on the race you run,
The way of your life.

I am danger, I'm a stranger
Cause I don't give in to your call.
And not until she is satisfied
We can come and explode and we fall!!!

We're blowing the flame of your headless game:
We don't follow!

Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.
Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.

Longing for silence...
"Always faster" is the way that we go.
Not a little patience...
Higher, farer, better we grow

Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.
Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don't play your headless game!
We are alive, don't say goodbye.

(... In their eyes we are insane! But aren't daydreamers only the escapists of
A soulless view of life?...)

    This song is probably about the emigres during the French Revolution. The emigres were counter-revolutionaries who were rich, so they left France to escape the revolution. For those of you who don't know, the French Revolution was a time when the rich people were having their heads chopped off. That must be what this "headless game" is. At first, the poor had no power, so they protested and a dude by the name of Maximillan Robespierre started sending rich counter-revolutionaries to the guillotine. The rich people left because they didn't play his headless game. They escaped the guillotine. These people became known as "emigres." I believe that that's what this song is referring to.
