I've been reading "Black Mirror" by George Orwell
Dystopian rebellion sells
I might as well
Use ten dollar words I just looked up like this one
Are you impressed at how woke a pop star can be?
I'm so awoke I never sleep
Or even blink
We're connected but we've never been more separate
And I'm the only one who's ever thought or said that
It's time for us to get politicized
For reals you guys
Clap along it's a protest song
But not one that'll offend mommy
Hit 'em with subtle imagery
Like a roller coaster with emojis
That was deep as f**k
Why does your life suck?
It's cause of corporations
And other 'ations
Are we phone deaf?
Just typing, swiping, liking stuff
So I removed the temptation
Chopped off my thumbs
Now every time I grab my phone I drop it, drop it
This helps me to leave it in my pocket, pocket
Give up your Snapgrams and Instablogs
Get your Amish on
Give up electricity
Learn how to sew all your own clothing
Churn it up, I can't believe making butter could be so darn easy
You can be like me
I'm told that's how the world was back when I was just a fetus
That's enough, stop whittlin'
No one deserves to be stuck here sittin'
Through all this bullshit you're emittin'
Allow me to bring up a point you're missin'
You realize if people took your dumb, cliched advice
No one would buy this single
And you'd be broke and no one would put up with what you're spittin'
Grow up, I'm done babysittin'
Change of plans, listen to my song
Buy it on iTunes or Amazon
Turn on mute, keep it on repeat
Sorry that I bit the hand that feeds me
I don't need money
Just the stuff it brings
Like clothes for Mr. Mittens
Who has two thumbs and loves kittens?
