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
