I see people taking pictures of other people taking video of other people that are posting on Facebook and then tweeting about it and then putting that up on instagram then they put it on their blog
It’s a culture of me me me me me, but I’m also wondering about you and you and you too
That’s why I’m stalking you online
Reading everything I can find
When I’m alone I’m always reaching for my phone (2x)

Digital Addiction (I’m textin’ while I’m driving)
Digital Addiction ( checking my feed before I get out of bed)
Digital Addiction (‘cause I’m worried about the messages I haven’t read)
Digital Addiction (It’s time to turn it, turn it off now)
Turn it off now, turn it turn it off now 4x

Our technology was supposed to set us free
But instead it’s got us trapped like prisoners behind a screen
And I wonder what does it mean that all my dreams are in pixels
They’re in RGB pixels
Maybe I’ve got a

Digital Addiction (when I’m texting while we’re driving…I know it’s dangerous and illegal)
Digital Addiction (checking your feed before you get out of bed…just can’t help it)

Turn it off now, turn it turn it off now 2x

Alright now 65% of statistics are made up on the spot,
But 25% of the time those are true
So I've got a little statistic for you
Over 80% of mobile phones have fecal matter on them
Think about that the next time you get a calling raising up to your face
And think about that the next time you're sitting on the toilet
Doing your work email and pooping

It’s time to recognize the power of connectivity
Learn to use it more creatively than watching cat videos on the Internet all day
Because we can find solutions to all the problems and pollution
But we’ve got to change our paradigm
And I think it's about time to break free from our

Digital Addiction (while we’re texting while we’re driving…don’t do it it can kill you )
Digital Addiction (checking the feed before we get out of bed…just can’t help it)
Digital Addiction (worried about the messages you haven’t read)
Digital Addiction (sleeping’ with the phone underneath our head)
Digital Addiction (down’ the work email on the toilet)
Digital Addiction (and answering the phone while we’re having sex…don’t do that!)
Digital Addiction (It’s time to turn it off now)
Turn it off now, turn it turn it off now 4x (digital addiction…)

I see people of other people taking video of other people they’re posting on Facebook about an instagram they saw on twitter and then they put it on their blog
It’s a culture of me me me me me and this egotism is getting out of hand
When I’m alone I always reach for my phone
To see what is crackin’ to see what is lackin’ inside
Maybe i’m just feedin’

Our technology was supposed to set us free
Instead it’s got us trapped like prisoners behind a screen
And what does it mean that I dream in pixels
We’re puttin screens in front of little kids, in front of little babies
Maybe we’re crazy... definitely crazy
And we got a

It’s time to recognize the power of connectivity
Learn to harness it and use it more creatively
Gotta solve all these problems of pollution
We can find solutions
And we can make it better if we work together
We’re changing the weather we’re changing the weather
And if we work together we can make things better
The planet’s getting hotter but we gotta make it cooler now
If we work together we can make things better
The planet’s getting hotter but we gotta make it cooler

Let’s use these devices like tools and don’t make ourselves into fools
Let’s use these devices like tools and not act like fools
not act like we’ve got a
