No likes...fuck Maybe the filter wasn't different enough? Or maybe I didn't tag it right, nothing's coming up No alerts, no saves - nobody's got in touch It's a lie repackaged as a dream Distributed like a drug - lines scattered on your screen We breed it in the scenes that we read about daily Suicide kids being raised by babies Slaves to The Gram - ironic that we call it that Faster than a dealer and you never need to call him back Everyone's a movie star, everybody's famous Everybody's innocent, everybody's blameless But not the habits of advertising execs The targets that are set by what we're told to accept And you're surprised when it's you that they're selling? The worst monster is the one that you let in Chorus (x2) It's too late for me - I'm caught in it I keep watching the days go by I keep sleeping, I don't feel right No likes, no likes But I'm caught in it too, energy getting sapped I resort to the blue and the green coloured apps I need validation, I need Candi Staton Nobody's got the love and can't see the way we're facing Negativity feeds mental illnesses We don't feel this and that's what a mental illness is Wake up to what's keeping you asleep Assessing how you're living by what's happened in a week Your kids are finding it harder to break from it And you can make excuses, the truth is that you made em' want it When you put that iPad in that push chair And replaced every "hi, Dad!" With a "Shh, there!" You left it to the internet to raise him on a viral feed And wonder why a five year old has got anxiety I'm glad I grew up when it was in it's infancy Now I see what to teach my infant not to be Chorus (x2) It's too late for me - I'm caught in it I keep watching the days go by I keep sleeping, I don't feel right No likes, no likes
