Week Off

ch.
I think I need a week off from the internet...
It's just something I don't wanna deal with...
I think I want a week off from the internet...
To be honest, right now I'm not feeling it...
(x2)

v1.
Been a minute since I've been off line...
Social media wastes my time...
And though it's driving me out my mind...
Addictive cycle is well designed...

you can't tell me it's fomo / when it's instagram'd in slow mo
posted on crazy image boards / where everyone's four loco
20 left out 40 me / when every moment's YouTube streamed
only good news is what we see / such a nightmare and not a dream

networks built for jealousy / aggregators for outrage
need a break from insanity / I need an internet outage
but now that is impossible / cause I'd be without wages
bits and bytes are how we rule / a roll back would be outrageous

guess I'll uninstall these apps / won't kill accounts; I'm too afraid
even then I still hold back /cause my friends chat at me every day
like to find some true escape / but exit strategies don't exist
and it's deeply ironic that / if I left it, I'd not be missed

v2.
the internet has me so stressed...
puts us all under duress...
private memories all confessed...
liked and shared just to impress...

multi faceted twice flattened / turned into a time line
context is a lost dimension / as everything is refined
never shown in inaction / always on the incline
purge should context change then / remove the posts that remind

group deletion simulacra / distance never once achieved
selective truth still coming at us / never once shall be relieved
angled angels look perfect / never once can be believed
want the truth but can't search it / SEO has sewn bad seeds

can't blame me for a little hatin / for wanting a vacation
from artificial sensations / for which I have lost patience
news relayed without waitin / disowned as misinformation
we all need a good break / from that empty entertainment
