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
