about

'Games of Hide & Seek' is a down-beat, trip-hop inspired piece of dark, soft rock with a lot of history inside. First penned in the study of a seaside flat in 2005 and originally titled 'SS Eternity', the track explores in minute, metaphoric detail the experience of love mixed with anxious, depressive, nihilistic expectation. As much an emotional parody of 'the little death' as an autobiographical piece, the song represents a further pivotal change in songwriting and style.

Also available on 'C Side Volume 2: Sinking Ships'

lyrics

In this chapel
Blackened charred and spent
Lies a body aching
Metaphoric
For the way I feel
Taken by another

I cry again
I die again
Why this lie
Is it just a game
I don't want to play
I cry again
And my soul darkens

In this graveyard
There's a parthenon
There we're lying talking
Doesn't matter
All the feelings gone
Severed heart remaining

I cry again
I die again
Why this lie
Is it just a game
I don't want to play
I cry again
And my soul darkens
