Social media rots your brain.

lyrics

Feeling lost in an elephant’s dream
Caught up in the digital stream
Cave of shadows, can’t say what I mean
A million miles far from home

Best foot forward, take a step back
Play defense while on the attack
Sowing discord, can’t cut them no slack
Everybody so alone

If everyone could see
Themselves through some other eyes
Innocent, caught up in the machinery
An algorithmic disguise

Making everything great again
Forget about your family and friends
Looking for a means to an end
Just don’t want to be alone

Fragile gem, split in two
Internal dialogue of them vs. you
Find acceptance with nothing to do
The voices there are all your own

If everyone could see
Themselves through some other eyes
Innocent, caught up in the machinery
An algorithmic disguise

A deeper body ache, and make a bad mistake
A million jumping on
Sharing a bad take, Nobody can quite shake
The feeling that you’re gone

Feeling lost in an elephant’s dream
Getting washed away by the digital stream
If it feels better to share another meme
Doesn’t make you less alone

If everyone could see
Themselves through some other eyes
Innocent, caught up in the machinery
An algorithmic disguise

If everyone could see
Themselves through some other eyes
Innocent, caught up in the machinery
An algorithmic disguise
