"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" - Metal_Treasure
