Put down your cellphone. Take the headphones out of your ears. Log off Facebook. Go out into the world and enjoy the company of other people. Real people. Smile and hang out. You don't need complicated technology to do that.


So I think it's time for a simple song
Straight from the heart
Just some words that rhyme, it shouldn't be too long
Yeah, that's where I'll start

'Cause everything around me seems to constantly degrade
I can't live without saying something that'll make it change
What's with all these people that are living in the moment
Can't they see that what they're doing is a major component

Of the breakdown of society
It's just our selfish nature saying 'to hell with community'
Take down individuality
'Cause living your life really shouldn't be
All about me

The information age hasn't helped at all
It's torn us apart
The products of laziness and urban sprawl
It's a detriment to art

I listen to my iPod almost every single day
Then sit at the computer, posting comments on MySpace
Download a few songs and watch a pirate DVD
In the comfort of my bedroom that I never leave
