Nancy Farmer First, I love the guitar riff that just pulls me in. The story's so true in the day of social media and "climate controlled metal cages". How can we pretend nothing's wrong?

lyrics

Empty
by Rob Roper ©2018

A thousand friends
no one to talk to, so I
sit and stare
at a plastic rectangle, four by three

Everyone's connected
Connected to no one, it's a
contradiction
the latest addiction

Chorus:

How can we feel so empty in
a city of a million people?
How can we pretend
nothing's wrong?

Sit with me and talk for awhile
I want to see your smile
'cause all too soon this moment
will be gone

We started out, in a
garden of Eden, but now we live
most of our lives
under a ceiling

It all builds up, so we
look for ways to vent our rage, we roll
down the street, in a
climate-controlled, metal cage

(Chorus)

A thousand friends
no one to talk to
