I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow, and the empty

A moment in the spotlight or limelight
forget about celebrities I’m the number one highlight
You can follow my life my every thought, every movement
so focused on broadcasting we lost sight of self improvement
See if you give everyone a soapbox then who is left to listen?
It’s just everybody yelling shouting for attention
If I lend you my mouth but forget about my ear
You’ll just keep shouting to the world but never stop to hear
And let me give you this small piece of advice
If you spend a lot of time listening you learn a lot about life
but is that asking too much in a narcissistic society
where people only think “please will you reply to me”
every status update has to be as important as the next
don’t want to be left hanging like waiting for a text?
yeah its pretty obvious what everyone wants
validation with that quick response
10 or 15 likes maybe 4 or 5 new subscribers
Stuck on an island of digital YouTube survivors
All fighting for the same thing – somebody to like us
I’m anxiously waiting for that phone to sing
to blow up and show up that notification ring
before my own insecurities succumb to this plague
every minute I’m connected minutes turn to days
until I can feel assuaged by your praise
It’s become like a heroin fix
I need more & more to calm me its a digital hit
I want all eyes on me
I need your attention
go straight to my online friends if i ever got a question
Jack, Jill & Johnny & umm who are you again?
See now the technology controls us..and we can’t go without it
So you say you will leave you will quit but for real we all doubt it
It’s just another cry the craving of attention
Hoping for those replies cause man I need those mentions
Talk to me please, hear me when I tweet,
like all my photos of the food that I eat
and this right here goes out to all my twitter peeps

I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty

This whole social media craze..
Has got everyone hoping for that social media gaze
It’s like we are all moths circling the same flame
ego so desperate for you to know my name
It’s now a level playing field and we are all playing the same game
Self obsessed with self put it in a frame
I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty
