lyrics

©2017 D. Wheeler

no one really listens to understand
people just want likes
it’s a popularity contest

facebook
check it
hello
fake it

twitter
nonsense
re-tweet it
don’t check it

journalist
you want it
fact check
don’t wreck it

youtube
promotion
you faked it
just take it

i’m just saying it
what you knew
the obvious

i’m just calling it out
what you knew
the obvious
no one really listens to understand
it’s obvious, it’s obvious

you see it through the prism of our design
you see it through the prism of our design
you see it through the prism of our design

they never asked
they didn’t have to, we came willingly
easy to take whatever they want
everyone shares
(here, have a sandwich)

they’re using your face
they’re reading my book
the book of my life

some people share
some people shout
no one really listens

no one really listens
no one really listens to understand

you see it through the prism of our design
media: our hearts and minds are our hearts and minds
it’s obvious, it’s obvious
media: say no, no games
just pointing out the obvious

don’t shoot the messenger
don’t shoot the messenger
don’t shoot the messenger

i got a sandwich for you

our hearts and minds
(our hearts and minds are)
(our hearts and minds are)
just take your time
to decide

i’m not gonna let facebook tell me who to vote for
i’m gonna do my own research
