I have planned that no opposition can stage a fight
I'll play the game and never ever lose.

My thoughts never spoken only the
visions inside my head the truth never broken
within my silent words left unsaid.

I will steer the helm of all the nation
as the captain
take my rewards for all the good I'm doing now,
and no words that I'm the knave will alter my
philosophy for if any are heard, the games started
again I'll never ever lose.
