"Hide and Seek" as written by and Gary Nicholson Al Anderson....
Forearms can cover up
Lies in hiding.
Kinda makes the only sound
While I wait for others to be found.

So much for making up rules
While were playing.
Who cares about the rules anyway.
They're for mindless fools
And child's play

This time
This time
This time
Yeah this time
This time
Its my turn its not your turn

Counting out the hiding
But what I seek
I'm not finding
Ready or not
Ready or not

Counting on the hiding
But what I seek
I'm not finding
Ready or not
Ready or not

Why should it make sense?
Why are you so un-spon-tain-eous?
And why does your way
Sound the same as yesterdays?
So I'll shift
And bite again
Draw a mark
On your skin
Red tattoo that turned out pink
What exactly will they think of you?

This time
This time
Yeah this time
This time
Its my turn its not your turn

Counting out the hiding,
But what I seek,
I'm not finding.
Ready or not
Ready or not

Counting out the hiding,
But what I seek,
I'm not finding
Ready or not
Ready or not

Why are you jealous?
Overbearing, over-zealous?
What for? What for?

Is it the lost memory
Of all those games you played with me?
All those games you played with me?
All those games you played on me?
All those games you played on me, me, on me!!!

Counting out the hiding,
But what I seek,
I'm not finding.
Ready or not.
Ready or not.

Counting out the hiding,
But what I seek,
I'm not finding.
Ready or not.
Ready or not.
Ready or not.
Ready
Or
Not!

    General Commentnice try, but those lyrics aren't all accurate....thanx anyway. this song is definately a stand out track on Development with it's mature, youthful lyrics. my interpretation of this song would be someone trying to play emotional games with another person and they're not finding what they really need to find.

    General CommentI agree with the interp of some one who is unable to find what he seeks, because the other person keeps playing emotional games with him.

    sadmeatcart,
    There aren't any "inaccuracies". I checked the lyrics on other sites, and I have the CD "DEVELOPMENT", and there were none with the exception of one small word. When ELIAS SINGS,
    '"WHY DOES YOUR WAY SOUND THE SAME AS YESTERDAY.'"' Not "Taste", and, there's a couple of "YEAHS" in the choruses, but other then that, it's perfectly fine. Thanks for putting them up here, I appreciate it!
