"Hide", the new single by Antwerp and Hamburg-based dream-pop duo THE DAY, is the third glimpse already into the band's sophomore album "The Kids Are Alright".

With its itchy guitars and its slightly bent 90s Indie vibe, the track ties in with the band's earlier single "Empty." But the tracks are also connected in terms of their lyrics. The Day elaborate:

"The most influential people in the world rather hide than use their power and their possibilities to deal with what really matters. And with what needs our full attention right now. Before it's too late. We are running out of time!"

Instead, things get relativized or glossed over. Or simply, lies are told. We lie to ourselves. The Day add:

"In the lyrics we have intentionally used 'we', because this concerns us all. We are all human beings, we may even be those we don't want to be. We ask ourselves who we are, and who we want to be. And what we can do."


And we feel the earth shaking

Underneath the layered lights

Cause we’re running out of time dear

For our fathers to fight

All the tears we cry in silence
Smother us with guilt and pride

Cause we do not know the answer
But we do know how to hide

All we do is
We cover up our lies

We would rather 

Live with no ears and eyes

All we hear is
The good will come in time
Then we’ll care for

Our own forgotten lives

And we speak the words of wisdom

From our mouths a desperate try 

To forgive our greatest failures

Fading out in soundless cries

We were raised with expectations
Of a land filled with desire
If the truth will fall apart now
Then we do know how to hide
