Ben J. Pierce – Little Game lyrics

Play us like pawns and relentlessly confine
Into living up to gender roles and having absent minds
Don't you think it's funny how they tell us how to live?
Don't you think it's funny how we're all delinquent kids?
Like Hush now
Don't say, Don't say

Hush boy, oh Hush boy
Don't say a word
Throw on your Jersey and no-one gets hurt


Hush girl, oh Hush girl
Just bat your eyes

Play our little game
Play our little game

Bounded all thoughts and corrected common sense
You're raising suicidals with your predetermined titles
Like "A mess, distress"
"I am unimpressed, you're excess"
"A dress is all you'll ever be"
Gender roles impose control and deceive progressive time
Welcome to the land of the broken mind

Hush boy, oh Hush boy
Don't say a word
Throw on your Jersey and no-one gets hurt

Hush girl, oh Hush girl
Just bat your eyes
Play our little game
Play our little game

We feign opulence to get by
Put on false confidence just to feel alive
They can't hurt me anymore
There's nothing left to break of me
Nothing left to take from me

Cos Baby it's easy to fake a smile
When you've been doing it for a while

Baby it's easy to fake a smile
When you've been doing it for a while

Hush boy, oh Hush boy
Don't say a word
Throw on your Jersey and no-one gets hurt

Hush girl, oh Hush girl
Just bat your eyes
Play our little game
Play our little game

Hush boy, oh Hush boy
Hush girl, oh Hush Girl
Play, play, play, play
Play our little game
Play our little game

Play our little game
Play our little game
Play our little game
Won't you play with me?

    This whole song is written by a 14-year old boy about breaking gender boundaries. It is an extremely influential song, particularly for youths that are struggling with their gender identity or perhaps transgender people who might have had some trouble figuring out who they were in the past. I think it is important that we are all able to feel free to express our gender freely. This includes gender-queer, gender non-binary, bi-gender, gender non-conforming, trigender and all other forms of gender that might be less well-known.
