Wassup. I wrote this song a long time ago and I guess it's about a few different things. I had never played the song for him but, I met up with my little brother in Chicago a few years ago and he had a tattoo on his arm of this pawn with a crown on his head. I guess family thinks a like but something told me I needed to make the track happen.

I talk pretty fast in this one. Thought I'd post the lyrics in the case you'd dig'em

"It looked like destruction at the break of the dawn
When one pawn jumped a knight turned and screamed...C'mon!!!!
The rooks jumped back as he attacked the castles
the bishops acted too casual as Pawn broke the actual
Moving uncontrollably swarming the board
Slashing axes hatchets knives daggers and swords
Furiously forward his momentum was growing
Not aware of the rules he's broken
Cause he never chose to know them
Overflowing with passion
Having to have action
Battling to the end of the board
Just to turn and battle back again
Ask a friend
Cause everybody knows one
One pawn who won't stop

Some gotta start
Some gotta be a part of started things
Some cats are hearts
Some cats are veins

Pawn's battered and bleeding
Badly beaten
Sadly treated to treason
Dragging back to even
Still can't see retreating
Bloodied and battered
Utterly savage
Ugly and back sagging
Suddenly saddened is the attack addict

He's back at it.

Overflowing omens without knowing where he's going
Only led, only stolen by what's shown him
Forever roaming
Never homing in on nothing
But he's gotta turn this sight into something

Some gotta start
Some gotta be a part of started things
Some cats are hearts
Some cats are veins
Some cats surf
Some cats make the waves

The mist lifts
his hands still clenched in a fist
teeth grit
neck twists
to look for who's coming next
but there's none left
all around Pawn's surrounded by death
save for a King kneeling down in respect
He's a loose cannon but he's still standing
Gripping his weapon
Checking position
Wondering when he'll need to move again
He's a dead end if the battle ever ceases
He's going for broke and just hoping
He can put back all the pieces
Wondering if it's over
But knowing it's all that he knows
Knowing it's the only thing that grows inside his soul
Only his foes can show him what's he's got
And he knows he's nothing if the match ever stops
Cause...

Some gotta start
Some gotta be a part of started things
Some cats are hearts
Some cats are veins
Some cats surf
And some cats make the waves
