lyrics

A new kind of tension
Interconnected
Breathe in the questions
Let out the next one

Who's in this page that I'm now displaying?
Who is this stranger
I'm now debating?

Who is this stranger I'm now portraying?
Who is the audience I'm now persuading
To misbelieve that I'm not escaping
From the need to know how I am graded?

Do you want to see what I've created?
Or do you want to see how I'm not hated?
Compare me to one of your friends, and we'll weigh out the trends,
which one of us is better rated

Even though this picture might be outdated
And even though my stories might be inflated
As long as attention is mine, we're friends online, though we've never communicated

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world

"Click 'accept'
You'll make friends,"
So it says
In my head

It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget

Find my home
In my phone
Spread my name
'Til I'm known

I'm surrounded but I still feel alone

A new kind of tension
Interconnected
Breathe what's expected
Breathe what's elected

This is the point where we are reflected
Where everyone learns what we have projected

Everyone learns what we've not perfected
Everyone learns if we've been dejected
Everyone learns what we have infected
This is what is it, but can it be corrected?

Is this what we are, a movie directed?
We act who we are - a facial expression
Write out a note, and tag who we know, proclaim what we show and still feel neglected

Is it perverse, or is it suspected?
Can you perceive that I am affected?
I care too much for strangers' opinions, but if it's my goal, should I be conflicted?

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world

"Click 'accept'
You'll make friends,"
So it says
In my head

It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget

Find my home
In my phone
Spread my name
'Til I'm known

I'm surrounded but I still feel alone

Everyone around the world

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
(It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget)
