Waking up can be hard to do
When the morning calls for
A dark sky and strong coffee
That’s cold as ever

The world has turned
To face the darkest shade of gray

Life can be a losing game
There’s too many ways to cheat
And less ways to win
Pawns stuck on a broken board
Let’s wait for the dice to roll

Traffic goes by slowly
Angry people sit there
Looking for a reason to fight
Over spilt water
That drowns the town

The world has turned
To face the darkest shade of gray

Life can be a losing game
There’s too many ways to cheat
And less ways to win
Pawns stuck on a broken board
Let’s wait for the dice to roll

The night closes the city
And now all that’s left to do
Is make it through a night
With unspoken horrors
And worries of what is left

The world has turned
To face the darkest shade of gray

Life can be a losing game
There’s too many ways to cheat
And less ways to win
Pawns stuck on a broken board
Let’s wait for the dice to kill
Let’s wait for the dice to save
