lyrics

I was sittin on my sofa
Now the weight of the world upon my shoulders
Average men became soldiers
The day the robots took over

Unplug
Before the machines get a hold of you
Unplug
You flip the switch but who's controlling who?
Unplug
You turn it on but who's controlling who
Unplug
You press the buttons but --

Verse 1
My gps froze can't get directions,
I need google or Siri just to answer a question
I change the channel every 10 seconds
Can't function if I lose my Internet connection
Outta my zone, I lost my iPhone
I wouldn't even know the number to my moms home
Even if I have a lousy waiter
Can't get the tip straight without a calculator,
I want my space like timberlake
When I get it I can't get it straight
It's impossible to innovate
Roadblocks on the information interstate
Coud it be another side effect of inner hate
Hungry wolves snatching portions off my dinner plate, sickening,
Even when im in the club,
I get pinged all night by every social site I'm a member of
Seem like I'm not even me any more
Went from social butterfly
To social media whore
And we all seen the pictures and signs from the scriptures,
That say false idols will get ya
But still we slaves to technology,
And I don't see a way out coming, but there's gotta be!
My philosophy is this:
Why waste time, wit set backs
Cuz times the only thing ya can't get back


Unplug
Before the machines get a hold of you
Unplug
You flip the switch but who's controlling who?
Unplug
You turn it on but who's controlling who
Unplug
You press the buttons but --

All the stuff that I used to commit to memory, they threw it outta schools, they just let em be,
They call it useless, cause nobodys gonna ask you what the surface area of Duluth is
We used to learn from mistakes,
Now I can't try cuz I got no time to waste, I heard em say
Why waste time, wit set backs
Cuz times the only thing ya can't get back
used to enjoy our heated arguments
Now a trip to wikipedia ceases all of it
you know where i be at then You know why i cant relax,
Was Told I need To detox, all I did was relapse
I was late to work because of my alarm
While a kid used his ps3 to arm a bomb
I try to say it just what us kids do
Technology's a tool, but a crutch is too

I was sittin on my sofa
Now the weight of the world upon my shoulders
Average men became soldiers
The day the robots took over
