lyrics

I hope you got a sturdy soap box for me to climb on
A hill that's tall enough for me to fucking die on
A big ass box of tissue paper I can cry on
My own very personal cable news chyron
Was it a certain subject that I crossed the line on?
Check the replay from the camera in pylon
Too tough to tackle an issue, well help me pile on
Politics that's negatively charged, that's anion
If you don't like it well, buddy, you can delete me
Press that unfollow button, like when do we speak?
My Facebook wall was not designed for your graffiti
So please leave and be brief while I grab my squeegee
Scrubbing every open window of your presence
My pity party did not ask for your attendance
I'm blocking your existence, if you feel offended
I hope you find relief in my impending obsolescence

I feel very fine when America's online
So many things to choose, from recipes to news
I never waste my time when America's online
Some friends you can engage with, invite them to your page
I never lose my mind when America's online
A life is meant for sharing, the people are so caring
A whole new world to find when America's online
When America's online

I had to unfollow your mom because she's awful
Cherry picks the bible but a Facebook meme is gospel
How did the comment sections get so weird and hostile?
The links a fucking recipe to Kafka and falafel
Will someone please figure out this great debacle
Before humanity is ripped apart and toppled
Before white people lose control, show us their collective soul
And elect a dude who calls himself "The Donald"
All the world's knowledge is sitting in our pockets
And there's still people out there who don't believe in fossils
Instagram models, playing Facebook Aristotle
For adoring apostles, I'll rather play opossum
Most of my time spent online is feeling rotten
And I admit that I'm huge part of the problem
Arguing for nothing, braggadocio and ratios
I'm just gonna hang out with Pistachio

I feel very fine when America's online
So many things to choose, from recipes to news
I never waste my time when America's online
Some friends you can engage with, invite them to your page
I never lose my mind when America's online
A life is meant for sharing, the people are so caring
A whole new world to find when America's online
When America's online

about

Chris Orrick Detroit, Michigan

Chris Orrick is the patron saint of a poisoned world. The blue-collar MC writes spiteful chants for the permanently scarred, death letters for the forgotten, surly hymns for charcoal lungs. Think Bukowski on an eloquent bender, swapping wine for whiskey, a notepad for a glowing LED screen, the race track for the recording booth. These are anthems for the irate, over-educated and under-valued. ... more
