Benny – 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 the tell us how to live?
Don't you think it's funny how we're all delinquent kids?
Hush. 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
Your 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

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

Cause 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
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

Play our Little Game
Play our Little Game
Play our Little Game
Won't you play with me?

    This song is basically saying how the gender roles imposed on our society in children are overpowering and unneeded, and causes them to not do the things they want and not be the person they want to be. If you watch the music video it gives a lot more symbolism and meaning than words can describe, so I advise if you want to know more, find the video on YouTube. Thanks for reading!

    The song in my opinion is about someone being stuck in the middle and not being able to come out of the closet to others about their sexuality or whether they identify as the opposite sex, I think the song plays in important role in teaching others about the struggles that the LGBTQ Community faces, Benny expresses this struggle in a beautiful simplistic way.
