The darker side and consequences of social media...


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
