“The Game Is Over” by Evanescence

Evanescence’s “The Game Is Over” is addressed to an individual(s) whom, succinctly put, reads as if he is an oppressor/leader over the singer (i.e. the powers that be). And more to the point of her gripe, this entity has the tendency to play with her mind, or we can say deceive her into believing that everything is alright when in fact it isn’t. Or at least that’s how he wants her to behave. So now, she is telling this person that “the game is over”. Or stated differently, she is tired of playing along with his deceptions in the name of maintaining peace when she is uncomfortable and falsely appearing as if she is cool.
