about

I wrote this song originally hoping to get it into the end-credits of the upcoming Ender's Game film. Please help me share the love by spreading the word. :-) I have a youtube music video for it too at www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=UQjWFo5alac&ns=1

I've made the song free for download, but I'm only given a certain amount of downloads a month on here without having to pay for more, so entering more than zero for the price is always appreciated (but not necessary).

Darian Robbins did the amazing artwork on this. He's done some other super-awesome Ender's Game artwork which you can check out at artofdarian.blogspot.com

Questions about the song? I'd love to answer them. Feel free to contact me at noah@noahsilvermusic.com .

lyrics

Lost in the cosmos
An ancient sea
This sinking vessel
Charging like a kamikaze

Last words spoken
Praying for humanity
Commander’s calling
Whispering soft words of peace

And we ask...

What does it mean to be a man?
Growing up with blood on your hands
Shirk our problems, launched at friends
It’s just a game, shut our eyes and pretend

The rising pressure
Is tearing apart
Childish memories
Stars and gates and gates and stars

Today our angel
A slave to take charge
Til ashes settle
Illuminating hidden scars

And we ask...

What does it mean to be a man?
Growing up with blood on your hands
Shirk our problems, launched at friends
It’s just a game, shut our eyes and pretend

Think we’ve finally reached the edge
Just a mind game’s illusion
Find a way to circumvent
It’s just a game, shut our eyes and pretend

It’s just a game, It’s just a game, It’s just a game
Shut our eyes and pretend...
It’s just a game, It’s just a game, It’s just a game
For one gate they defend...
It’s just a game..... [And it’s out of our hands...]
Just one way it can end...
It’s just a game, It’s just a game, It’s just a game
It’s Ender’s Game...
