Reality is so much better then Facebook.
We get together and I can see.. How your eyes look
It’s just so easy to throw a crumb by clicking “Like”
And Fake that it’s all right,
Cause then you don’t make time for me tonight.
But I need more then likes and status checks.
I need to know that someone really cares
Enough to pick up the phone
To hear my voice and check on me
Reality to see
If I’m ok.
Can we spare the time in this crazy day
To sit down with one another
To show love out to my brothers?
I don’t want to see you “liking” everything I do or say
Its just a lazy way
And now I know how little time you have for me
Its plain to see.. A painful reality
That you and me may never be that friendly.
Inside my heart this fire starts
That all this fake connection is disconnecting me … from you
And pushing us apart
And whoa your list of friends it grows
And now everybody knows your business
You “check in” to show how ‘good’ you are
Yet hide the things that you decide
You live a lie.. and Facebook helps perpetuate your myth.
I’d rather see you in the flesh
I try my best
For face to face instead of photos
How bout a hug
And time to spend
I don’t feel like your “closest’ friend
I feel left out.
*There’s nothing special about being one of your five hundred Facebook friends.*
Get off my page… You stalking me
And choices you make are haunting me
If you want to know how I am
Pick up the phone and call me friend.
Cause I don’t need a friend like you
Who takes for granted, what and who I am.
Yeah, I want more then this disconnect
the hole that social medias left
What we choose to project
Can be a lie … and then whats left?
Your truth and mine
Be careful now, you’ve crossed a line
There is no going back
