lyrics

Trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit


We are in the age of screens
Drifting down the data stream
Scrolling with a swollen thumb
Aint nobody hold their tongue
Sifting thru the latest memes
Double tap your daily feed
Slowly its been over run
Photos of the dull and dumb
Baby pictures, angry teens
Jordan faces, favorite teams
Loneliness and phony love
Bloated lips, emoji shrugs
Vegan bitches, racist things
Porno, Vegas, nature scene
Voters bitching, global floods
No restrictions, POTUS Trump
Fade the filter, paint the screen
Wake up, fake it, make it seem
Pose for selfies, hold it up
Overdressed, ain’t old enough
Ladies gents and in betweens
Pay attention ain’t a dream
Every app thats opened up
It traps us in this social slump


The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit

The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit


I confess
I’ve refreshed
The browser of my iPhone 6
A thousand times so I can check
My lousy likes just like the rest
But I don’t feel the need to fill your feed with food that I digest
Or use the time that I have left
To prove who liked my life the best
Nah that ain’t my success
I barely reply to texts
So I rarely give you guys a glimpse
In the library of my life’s events
But I’ll share with you what I do best
Rhyme very cool I’ve been blessed
And I’ve kept private the wife and my kids
Thats the side of me that I protect.
And I've been told my steez is low,
My beats are stole, my cd sucks
My rhymes are old, repeating flows
Fight me though we’ll see what’s up
But I’m no troll that needs to post my beef on social media
So why’m I supposed to speak to those who think my soul graffiti sucks
Ain’t gone delete it though
I’ll link a flow to keep in touch
Secret shows and deeper cuts
Free to load you keep the buck
And I could go and leak my whole complete discography to ya
And greet the growing greedy bunch
But it’ll never be enough


The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit

The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit


Where has it gone
I blame it on Amazon
We can shop with pajamas on
We don’t stand in long lines at Ralph’s or Von’s
And drive back when the traffic’s strong
Just grab the phone
Or a tablet the app is on
And door dash a sandwich
A ham croisant
Its get tracked to your address, handed off
Even the tip gets added on
It has it all
For pets, kids and adults
No stress, no mess, no crowded malls
No dressing rooms you look fat in, nah
Just drag it all in and cram the cart
Imagine you have any crap u want
All bought with the tap of your magic wand
Matter fact that’s sounding bomb
Let me click real quick on this hat I saw


The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit

The trouble is
We have to know whats up and so we double click
It’s practically a drug the way we plugging in
Our attraction to the ugly
Gets us back to feeling lovely
But perhaps we all should fucking quit
