Rollerball is a movie about a game
Jonathan E. forced into retirement
Killed his will to play
Killed his best friend
Subversion was the corporate game
Jonathan E. would have none of this,
Determined to win
Despite rule changes in the games
Such is life, cut and run
Corporate greed and corruption are good
It's a sick land we dwell in
Not kind and caring
Leading the world by example
Not at the point of a gun.
