Subject: RE: Don't Renege!
It's also possible that RT chose the word renege because of the assonance with the word "game" leading up to it.
He also writes "Simple is simple and plain is plain", but includes both simple and elaborate vocabulary in the lyrics.
I find that a very effective literary device to bring out the confusion between sincere feelings and the word games that are played out during a break up.
