Unleashing the second single from ‘The Bitter Truth’, ‘The Game is Over’ is a protest track fighting against the fronts we’re pressured to put on by society. A cry for help to end the, what feels like, an ever-growing wall of destruction, Evanescence hit the nail on the head with this release.
Amy Lee says of “The Game is Over: “This song is about being sick of the facade. The disguises we wear for others to make them feel comfortable, the inside feelings being so different than what we show on the outside to fit within the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable, or what’s not going to make you unpleasant or too ‘weird’ to be around.
“The Game is Over” is a promise to myself and out loud that I’m going to be more of my real, inner self on the outside–not lock her up because she can’t be contained anymore. It’s also a prayer to become better, to not feel so messed up, locked up, and hurt inside.
