Rhyming and Lyrics – Pixelated Nation

Pixelated Nation by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Over processed miracles and unrequited dreams
Eat away our innocence so much more than they seem
Over filtered conversations sensitize our brains
‘Til no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing

We hide our truth behind these pixelated movie screens
We make up stories and forget that no one’s what they seem
We hide our hearts and bury feelings deep down in our souls
‘Cause if anyone’s offended now we just don’t wanna know

Over processed miracles and unrequited dreams
Eat away our innocence so much more than they seem
Over filtered conversations sensitize our brains
‘Til no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing

We’re keeping company with cold computer-aided voices
We cower down and tuck our tails from actual human noises
We hide in darkened rooms subject to self-interrogation
From a faceless database filled with a pixelated nation

Over processed miracles and unrequited dreams
Eat away our innocence so much more than they seem
Over filtered conversations sensitize our brains
‘Til no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing

We hasten our demise and smile like we’ve done nothing wrong
We sell our souls to corporations following the throngs
Then when our world implodes we’re first to point and blame the missing
We’re just building our own ark to hell and 2 x 4 we’re drifting

Over processed miracles and unrequited dreams
Eat away our innocence so much more than they seem
Over filtered conversations sensitize our brains
‘Til no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing

Our world of no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing
A world of no one says a thing they mean and no one says a thing
We’re just a world on fire and drowning in an opioid sedation
And we’re building our own walls here in our pixelated nation

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
