Maybe it's society
Can I disappear?
For an hour, even for a day?
I wonder who would miss me?
Would anyone ask me to stay?
Would they miss the time we shared?
Miss the little things I do?
I would stay, I swear
If only you’d give me a clue
Maybe I feel neglected?
Maybe that’s why I want to disappear?
Is it possible to feel so dejected?
You want to vanish into thin air
What if I left?
Just walked away
Would you be stressed?
Would you beg me to stay?
Maybe nobody thinks of me that way
Is it possible to feel lonely?
There’s so many people in this world
Too bad most of them are phonies
Alter egos and false pretense
Seriously, how can we connect?
If all you do is pretend
Really who can blame us?
Maybe it’s some unwritten trend
Perfection is a must
In this society
With likes and heart filled eyes but zero trust
Strange, I feel so separated
Although, connected by our gadgets and silly devices
Face to face contact is outdated
Really, it’s a crisis
There’s so many like me
Eager to disappear
I just want to be free
Free from the lies and deceit
Maybe something’s wrong with me
Maybe the problem doesn’t lie with me
Maybe it’s society
