Wicked Games Lyrics

Did I wait too long
It made me somber wondering onward stronger
On and on
But I'm still awake
You haven't killed me
I am willing to persevere another day

You can run away but you can't escape
All these wicked games

You're impossible like ignoring the habit of breathing
I'm expendable to you completed then superseded

I insist it ends
My circumstances burned my chances
The answers want it that way
But I'm still awake
I have opponents
I've got moments to own that know my way

But it still exists and it's still there
You can't escape these wicked games

Go through your pain and struggle but maintain the knowing
Of what'll come to you showing it's all right
There's plenty around to drown you
Pronunciate found to all that surround you
Give them all flight
Running away is a stain in the mud a brain stem with a plug
When you get there you don't know why ou came
You end up going where you're knowing
Is showing in different form but inside you feel the same
There's always someone else to blame

To me this song is about a guy who was having "wicked games" being played with him and he is talking about how he is hurt but still going.

Well put, hes saying how he's been hurt but at the end of the day you're just going to have to get over it.

It's basically saying that you can't run away from your problems, you've got to face them head on.

"Running away is a stain in the mud"

Well this song is pretty straight forward I thought, but still has great meaning.

They use the metaphor of games to describe how everything that we do or go about things. Though truly it isn't a metaphor because the definition of a game is "anything resembling a game, as in requiring skill, endurance, or adherence to rules."

More specifically they are using this definition: "to act in an evasive, deceitful, manipulative, or trifling manner in dealing with others."

His first verse goes on to show the needlessness of games if people were open and open-minded with other. But the rest explains how it seems impossible when everyone is creating more defenses for others manipulation and greedy tactics while doing the same so that it creates an endless loop.

Sounds like the 'Wicked Games' that life can play on you. Sure you can run away from the problems life throws at you, but no matter what, 'you can't escape all these wicked games'.

My favourite line from this song is 'I've got moments to own that know my way'. Let that one sink in. Every moment or opponent you conquer, or even run away from, are part of a predefined direction. The opponent isn't necessarily another person, but whatever hardship life has placed in front of you.

I could go on for paragraphs explaining my thoughts on this song, but at the end of day it's easy to sum up quickly. This song covers most aspects of life and how it doesn't really matter how you tackle them; as life is full of wicked games.
