Annihilator — Knight Jumps Queen lyrics

'a gentleman invites a lady to his castle for a friendly game of chess. To his
Surprise, she proves to be an excellent opponent with ample experience in this
Field. The game drives hard into the night, where it finally ends in a draw.
However, it looks like they're both winners in the end, if you know what I mean!!
This is the first song I'd written (may 1991) for the lp. Crunchy, driving
Rhythms provide a great backdrop for the 'theatre-like' vocal performance. A fine
Pair of solos I must say. '

Good evening and welcome to a test of the minds
This match begins as our thoughts begin to grind
I send a pawn towards you, a subtle piece of my attack
Pondering the next move, I guess you'll never know unless you try it
Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen
You have made selections, a white castle crumbles at your feet
To counter the men in black, your moves must all be elite
A bishop takes a rook and this cuts him down to size
This is no tailor-made situation
I guess I have some real competition for once
Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen
Hours and hours to a stalemate, this game has come to a close
Could it end without a climax betwwen to exhausted foes
Night-time's falling on the castle, it's bringing in another day
The concentration was impossible, I never had a doubt I wouldn't win it from you
Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen
