1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The system begins to crackle
Then the music starts to blare
I’m yet to see a tackle
This is just the pre-match air

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The songs aren’t out of place
As they tell of love and pain
Can’t see the contorted singer’s face
I’m here to watch the game

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s not meant to be played here
It’s not what the writer wants
But often it fits to my ear
Summing up this circumstance

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the match has started
They’re hardly ever playing
To the rhythm and beats that have departed
But to the hush of people praying
