The game

I come, I see, I conquer
don’t know what it means to lose
I am what I am, I do what I do
I’ve walked so many miles in these shoes
I’ve got a thousand scars, a chest full of stars
and the streets know my name
Hordes of people from everywhere
come to see the master’s game

and they go

I’ve made all the preparations
I know exactly what it takes
Cause in the moment of truth
It’s a blink of an eye
And you see nothing, nothing in my face

I’ve got the ace of spades
I’ve got both of those eights
But my back against the wall
I’m always ahead
No hands of the dead
And I’ll give you a smile when you call

Victorious, Victorious
A hundred years from now, they will remember my name
Victorious, so glorious
It’s not fortune and fame
I’m in it for the game

I’ve never asked for fame and glory
Not even when I was in my prime
But nearly all of them been beside me
Though thick and thin though time

I’m absolute, I still execute
But when I drop for jumping the gun
They will tell my story
bring to life what I have done

They’ll go

Victorious, Victorious
A hundred years from now, they will remember my name
Victorious, so glorious
It’s not fortune and fame.
I’m in it for the game
