Lyrics

Some Things

Strike a pose on Tik Tok and
Pull a pouty snout on Instagram
Curate your perfect life
Tititate away all your time

Over-share ‘cos you care
Portray an intimate
Portrait
Of a life
Vacuous on the inside

Some things you say out loud
Other things you whisper
Some things you keep quiet about
Regardless of the listener

Get vexed
When you’re not on X
Get spooked
When you’re off FaceBook
All night and every day
You mediate
And can’t escape

It hasn’t really happened
If it’s not online
Take tiny hits of dopamine
Counting likes to feel fine

Some things you say out loud
Other things you whisper
Some things you keep quiet about
No matter who the listener

If we just all said what we all wanted and what we all thought
Kant’s categorical imperative would just explode

Some things you say out loud
Other things you whisper
Some things you keep quiet about
Regardless of the listener
You don’t have to share everything
How about a little decorum?
You don’t have to share everything
How about showing some discretion?
