    Perfected reality

    Beginning and end our words are pretend
    We are fakes and frauds as we hit send
    A friendship built on lies and deceit
    no wonder our relationships end in defeat

    Edited photos and edited lives
    in the digital world our deception thrives
    the perfect picture is all they see
    Alas they will never see the real me

    Every portrait fixed with a filter
    a virtual personality built to bewilder
    Popularity and praise is all we are seeking
    yet adoration from addicts is always fleeting

    Therefore think upon what we have become
    riveted by a reality under our thumb
