"Can’t Win"

Written By

David Frazier

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,

you see

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.
