Rivers Cuomo – Chess lyrics

Chess is such a difficult game
There's so many pieces
So many squares where you can go
So few promises

Never you mind all the others
Anticipating your next move
I know it's hard
'cause you got a lot to do

Street signs and traffic lights
Ever confusing me, too
Stop left, go right, no you-turn
Where's the god damn exit?

Never you mind all the others
Influencing your next move
I know it's hard
'cause you've got
A lot to prove

La la la, la la la

S** and drugs and rock and roll
Pieces lie right before you
This puzzle can't be done wrong
So come along while you can

Never you mind all the others
Anticipating your next move
Never you mind all the others
Never you mind what they do

Don't let them get you down
'cause if they do
You'll be trapped forever
Under their shoe
Here is a paintbrush of gold
I know it's hard
'cause you've got a lot to do

La la la, la la la
