White Lies

The screen provides a safe space A fairytale story full of our little white lies It's a place where we hide our fears and insecurities By creating a strong image for others to spy But slowly our reality becomes twisted Our mind gets lost in this virtual maze We’re confused We’ve lost our vision in the social haze Over time the images bleed together There's no delineation between them and me We begin fighting our own illusions In some altered reality We've all made a deal with the devil We've all presented, and we've all perceived We got sucked into feeling part of something special An impotent humanity We had a chance to stop digging But we’re in so deep we can't be found There's no more light at the end of the tunnel In all our sorrows, we’ve drown With no talent to speak of We've fallen back to darker times All we can do is clutch our crystals As we pray to get back the good old times It seemed to end so abruptly Where are the heroes in these troubled times They were so prominently displayed on social media That fairytale place full of our little white lies
