Children Of The Internet
Look I grew up in a good but a changing age My wife and kids, Damon Wayan's When the youth club was everybody's favorite place Where if you spoke to a girl, then it was face to face Bro, I've seen a heart of a hood turn trendy Kids loose interest, parks turn empty Social media has got us all less friendly Now can't you see the irony? She's got game when she types to me But nothing in person, that ain't the type for me Asking, "Can we go for dinner yet?" In the flesh No conversation, no intellect The future generation of the children of the internet Look It's all changing, I'm seeing it now You can meet a hundred people without leaving your house Putting pictures in the frames and memory in the clouds You know everybody keeps their memories in the cloud We finally found a voice and we ain't speaking as loud People only wanna listen to the sheep in the crowd And any other statement gets you cancelled by an activist That's never helped the cause that they're tweeting about Do you blame public figures and personalities For giving little kids a warped view of reality? Or blame all of the apps that make a killing And finding a sweet spot in your self hating vanity? Could you argue that it's borderline dangerous To take a picture of a girl's face And start changing it in one quick filter? Your nose looks thinner, your eyes look fuller, your lips look bigger Your software is better and your phone knows everything If anything it's getting George Orwellian Yeah, look It's all connected Nobody's protected from business collectives Your info's collected Children of the Internet Your info collected As a species, we now have to redefine what it means to be connected (Children of the Internet) A recent study showed that the average person earnestly Swipes, taps, pinches their phone a million times a year (Your info collected) People feel naked, inadequate And utterly vulnerable without their phone It's a primary conduit of personal, social and work life (Children of the Internet) There are more active cell phones on the planet than people The mobile phone is both a connection and disconnection device It is typically places between the human and it's surroundings Tuning the surroundings out
