about

When I grew up, my family shared one phone line, and one phone, that was attached to the wall. Today my son has an iPad.
Life is strange.

lyrics

My Avatar

I don’t know what I’m supposed to post here. I can’t help but feel so out of place.
I’ve got friends that I’ve never met. We stalk on the Internet.
But I’m not even here, it’s just my avatar, while I’m watching from afar.

I crawl across the web that spreads before me, to reconnect the threads I’d long forgot.
So you can reach out to me without even seeing me.
While we lose our humanity, speaking through avatars while we watch it from afar.

No one is talking face to face, live streaming life is not the same.
These photoshopped images on your Instagram page;
They don’t show the real life, it’s just what fits the frame.

I don’t know what I’m supposed to post here, I’ve got no advice to give or take.
Have faith in technology, or covet your privacy?
Or speak from your heart. Or send in your avatar and watch it all fall apart.

No one is talking face-to-face, live streaming life is not the same.
These photoshopped images on your instagram page;
They don’t show the real life, its just what fits the frame.

I don’t know what I’m supposed to post here. I can’t help but feel so out of place.
