Rules and Games

Album: Memory And Humanity (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Funeral For a Friend vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye told Kerrang! September 13, 2008 about this song: He said: "The media has made an aggressive standpoint on targeting current Rock acts as the reasons behind the current fears that the youth of today are becoming more involved in self-harming and suicide. We all know these claims are just a way of passing the buck to divert us away from the real issues. This took some shaping from the early demo to get it just right and all it came down to was some simple arranging to let the song move better."
