“Little Game is Benny’s debut single and music video as a dark alternative pop narrative on gender roles and gender equality. The video demonstrates the skewed enforcement of falling into masculine and feminine archetypes.

 

Play us like pawns
and relentlessly confined
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 a jersey
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, distressed
I am unimpressed
Your excess
A dress
Is all you’ll be
Gender roles impose control
And deceive progressive times
Welcome, to the land of the broken mind

Hush boy, oh hush boy
don’t say a word
throw on a jersey
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 a jersey
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 cant hurt me anymore
there’s nothing left to break of me
there’s 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 a jersey
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 a jersey
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 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
