Well, it took a little time 
But I guess you finally learned 
That promises get broken 
And bridges do get burned 
You've been siftin' through the ashes 
Just tryin' to find a flame 
Holdin' on to nothin' 
You're a victim of the game 

You were standin' way too close 
To see it all fall apart 
And there were things you couldn't hear 
'Cause you were listenin' with your heart 
But you can't say I didn't warn you 
Now there's no one else to blame 
There's no-one quite as blind 
As a victim of the game 

And it don't matter who you are 
It treats everyone the same 
All you need's a heart 
To be a victim of the game 

You know it's really gettin' to you 
When you take to tellin' lies 
And you can try to fool your friends 
But you can't look 'em in the eye 
There ain't no standin' tall 
In the shadow of the shame 
When everybody knows 
That you're a victim of the game 

And it don't matter who you are 
It treats everyone the same 
All you need's a heart 
To be a victim of the game 

Oh, you know when I look into your eyes 
I can really feel the pain 
Starin' in the mirror 
At a victim of the game
