............. LYRICS: You got me wondering all night and day Who made the stupid rules in this game we play We’re hiding the hurt cuz we’re setting the scene Living our best lives on everyone’s screens Overshare to make the world care Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal Up on my soapbox now I’m here to say I got some exercise and look good today And here’s a hot take to stir the pot My best impression of someone I’m not Overshare to make the world care Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal Compare and Despair Compare and Despair Compare and Despair Compare and Despair Despair Despair Despair It’s been two hours now but still I scroll There are no carrots in this rabbit hole I finally know now that less is more So why does unplugging feel like a chore? Overshare to make the world care Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal You got me wondering

ABOUT:

This song is about faking it in hopes of making it. Social Media has created a curated culture of compare and despair. There is an insatiable need for validation that does not reflect the reality of our daily lives. Nobody meets face-to-face very often these days, so the things we share online are the only way we really exist in other people’s lives.

~ Ben

LYRICS:

You got me wondering all night and day
Who made the stupid rules in this game we play
We’re hiding the hurt cuz we’re setting the scene
Living our best lives on everyone’s screens

Overshare to make the world care
Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal

Up on my soapbox now I’m here to say
I got some exercise and look good today
And here’s a hot take to stir the pot
My best impression of someone I’m not

Overshare to make the world care
Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal

Compare and Despair
Compare and Despair
Compare and Despair
Compare and Despair
Despair Despair Despair

It’s been two hours now but still I scroll
There are no carrots in this rabbit hole
I finally know now that less is more
So why does unplugging feel like a chore?

Overshare to make the world care
Roll the highlight reel selling my appeal
You got me wondering
