Blinded by this veil

Of the superficial dust

Always checking your mail

Not knowing whom to trust

 

We are taking this road

Through the networks of space

Waiting for the pictures to load

Whilst loosing our case

 

We count our friends

By the number of ‘likes’

We ‘follow’ the trends

And then the reality strikes!

 

We feel connected with those overseas

We feel left-behind if we are not part of this

We care too much, believing it’s real

And yet find ourselves asking: what is the deal?

 

Trapped in this network we have no clue

That someone is watching each step

No matter what you do

Someone is watching you!

 

Blinded by this veil

Of the superficial dust

Always checking your mail

Not knowing whom to trust
