Lyrics

This is the era of one-click friendships
And one-click falling outs at the first hint of difference
She friended me after a party where
we exchanged a mere handful of words
Then we had some late night heart
to hearts and it felt good to be heard
But before we met again she dropped me after one link I shared
And my political views say "Skeptic" and hers are agree or get out
There was no option to appeal the decision
And we look just like strangers when we see each other now

This is the era of online businessmen
Who make their fortunes off eBooks of their secrets
I saw an ad on social media,
blocking the things I really want from my feed
Promised me riches and a freedom most can only dream
I scrolled down for half an hour just to see where it led
And the red text at the bottom, assaulting my eyes
Said "Snag this deal while you still can"
A hundred dollars, hundred pages, for one simple truth:
When they can't create value, then they just invent it

This is the era of libertarians
Who seek a fortress guarded by high-tech Nazis
I see them wrapped up in their bubble
Blocking detractors just like everyone else
They flip, they don't just stretch,
the meanings of the words that they sell
When they hate free movement and free trade across imagined lines
Protect my industry, protect my family, they don't care about the rest
I could see them defending chattel slavery
as long as their own rights were protected

But it's going to be okay, okay okay
Because we can still stand up, make changes
So let's defy them all,
the online robber barons and the fascist libertarians
Be true to ourselves and let's dream and let's love
It's the only way we will get through this life
It's not about what's wrong, it's about what's right
