This one is about you ... yeah, you over there. Stop texting for chrissakes. Wake up!


You have got a social network
Well give yourself one great big fat perk
But for all your chit-chat no one's talking
Spend endless days doing cyber stalking
The more banal the bigger the deal
You love of self is simply surreal, yeah

You get it all on a silver platter
You act like nothing seems to matter
You're fat and vain and disaffected
You're all plugged in yet disconnected
You don't feel any real sensation
Talkin' 'bout your generation

You spend all day on your cellphone
And all you do is bitch and moan
Your music lacks authenticity
What does it matter you get it for free
I'm sure your lives will turn out well
While the rest of the world is going to hell

The fate of world is up to you
And what in the world are you going to do
Are you going to fix the environment
Will you get over your entitlement
Like a drunken kid who's driving a car
Time to say au revoir
