Sam Fender - Play God Lyrics




You were cracking all your fingers
With your eyes fixed to the floor
Sound had echoed down the street
By the monument you hear

Man is screaming through a megaphone
"Get your hands off the Middle East"
Every word would heard the cynical
Every word would cut your teeth

And he will play God
And he will play God

It's all the same down in the capital
All the suits and clattered feet
Sewer rats will shower the underground
In a race to make ends meet

And he will play God
And he will play God

Am I mistaken or are we breaking
Under weight from the long time
That he played God?
Am I mistaken or are we breaking
Under weight from the long time
That he played God?

He will play God

No matter who you are or where you've been
He is watching from the screen
Keeps a keen eye on the in-between
From the people to the Queen

And he will play God
And he will play God

Am I mistaken or are we breaking
Under weight from the long time
That he played God?
Am I mistaken or are we breaking
Under weight from the long time
That he played God?

He will play God
He will play God
He will play God
He will play God

  1. FutureGhost Onfire

    Yes brilliant track brilliant lyrics.
    Have a listen to New Zealand band Tripzville and their track "Sick Guns " https://youtu.be/Tt6-2K-Xyqg
    Syria,Afghanistan,Libya ,Iraq ,what a fecking crime right before our very eyes
    Disguised as something else while we"re all asleep
    Walking like Zombies.
    Stop working
    Working for the sick guns.

    The way he moves when the guards “arrested” him, ik it’s acting but he’s definitely been nicked at least once

  6. Zol Fodor

    Brilliant.

  7. Eighteen .5

    Under rated song

  8. Rosie Jones

    I feel like he’s referencing the President in a sort of way but honestly I feel like I’ve list a lit of meaning even though it’s very well written

    Crap. Nothing that hasn't already been done 1000 times already. Radio 1 will be all over it no doubt

    I said, without knowing he had taken inspiration from him, that this sounded very similar, melody wise, to that of Ben Howard's music.

  40. thesecondhandkid

    Credible pop music is a hard thing to pull off. This is perfect in that context. Pop music with tension and atmosphere and a guitar hook! Brilliant. Great production as well.

  41. coops66

    I'm beginning to think everything sounds better at 1.25 speed, go on try it

  42. Crossiant

    Here’s the official lyrics for you:


    You were cracking all your fingers
    With your eyes fixed to the floor
    Sound it echoed down the street
    By the monument your hear
    Pilot screaming through a megaphone
    Get your hands of the Middle East
    Every word would herd the cynical
    Every would would cut your teeth

    And he will
    Play god
    And he will
    Play god

    It’s all the same down in the capital
    All the suits and cladded feet
    Sewer rats will shower the underground
    In a race to make ends meet

    And he will
    Play god
    And he will
    Play god

    Am I mistaken?
    Or are we breaking
    Under weight for a long time
    That he played god?
    Am I mistaken
    Or are we breaking
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played god

    And he will
    Play god

    No matter who you are or where you’ve been
    He is watching from the screen
    Keeps a keen eye on the in between
    From the people to the queen

    And he will
    Play god
    He will
    Play goooood

    Am I mistaken?
    Or are we breaking
    Under weight for a long time
    That he played god?
    Am I Mistaken?
    Or are we breaking
    Under weight for a long time
    That he played god?

    He will play god
    He will play god
    He will play god
    He will play god

  43. poka hontas

    nice bass line

  44. G McP

    you all know his name´s not Fender, right? It´s Murphy. He got the
    nickname Sam Fender because of his choice of guitar. I was tricked too!

  45. Mona Lisa

    That's why THE 🇺🇸 U.S.A.& EDWARD SNOWDEN ARE so WONDERFUL.PERIOD❗DO NOT PLAY GOD......ARE YOUR KEEPING SOME CHILD FROM SEEING THEIR FAMILY..........BEC AS. USE❓

  46. roy ashman

    Album great but still have this on repeat.....

  47. Jan Older

    Heros Play god . Love Thies sang

  48. Sepp Wildgruber

    Coole Mukke....
    Die CD echt gut.
    Das Lied mit guten Gitarren und Drums.
    Und der Kerl hat echt ne gute Stimme.
    Und schön das man endlich mal nichts weichgespültes hört.
    Das ist ja in der heutigen Zeit fast an der Tagesordnung, er überrascht.
    Mit einem Sound, der an 80er erinnert, aber viel frischer.
    Bin auf die zweite CD gespannt ( Sorry, aufs 2te Streaming, wie man heute sagt :- ) )

    Alva

    100% meine Meinung

  49. Nini Homeboy

    [Verse 1]
    You were cracking all your fingers
    With your eyes fixed to the floor
    Sound had echoed down the street
    By the monument you hear
    Man is screaming through a megaphone
    "Get your hands off the Middle East"
    Every word would heard the cynical
    Every word would cut your teeth

    [Hook]
    And he will play God
    And he will play God

    [Verse 2]
    It's all the same down in the capital
    All the suits and clattered feet
    Sewer rats will shower the underground
    In a race to make ends meet

    [Hook]
    And he will play God
    And he will play God

    [Chorus]
    Am I mistaken or are we breaking
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?
    Am I mistaken or are we breaking
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?

    [Hook]
    He will play God

    [Verse 3]
    No matter who you are or where you've been
    He is watching from the screen
    Keeps a keen eye on the in-between
    From the people to the queen

    [Hook]
    And he will play God
    And he will play God

    [Chorus]
    Am I mistaken or are we breaking
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?
    Am I mistaken or are we breaking
    Under weight from the long time
    That he played God?

    [Outro]
    He will play God
    He will play God
    He will play God
    He will play God

  79. Chris

    i'm from Newcastle and this guys heed is everywhere and i've been on the lookout for an edgy indie type thing for a while although this guy will probably end up v mainstream, it's good to think a working class kid is still able to rise above all the posh twits with music and art degrees pumping out tired hipster crap
