I read the news today
one thousand million
views oh boy

to scroll
nothing ever changes

someone's pain
like react emoji nation
ghosts in the machine

nothing to know
more or less
'cept more is less

stay online
escape we think
the hunt for meaning

into the looking glass
we're all famous
gazing down

cos when you're by yourself
there's no one else
hold on it's gonna be alright

look away
make the break
feel the rain 

switch it off
cut the pain
loose the phone

walk on earth
look within

hug a friend
it's all the same
its in our nature

I read the news today
