Game of Pricks
Game of Pricks is one of Robert Pollards' most personal songs. He wrote the song about the break up of his marriage. His rock n roll lifestyle was becoming too much for his wife. When she married him he was a school teacher. Guided By Voices was just a music project Pollard and his friends did on the side. Then Jim Deal and Thurston Moore heard GBV songs and started talking about them in the music press. The rest is history.
I've waited too long to have you
Hide in the back of me
I've cheated so long I wonder
How you keep track of me?
