Whole World Has To Know

Rant behind a technology device, how cool are you?

Rant behind a technology device, how cool are you?

It’s clear you're seeking attention and not advice,

You know it’s true,

Spill us your life story because you know we all want to hear it,

Spill us your life story because we know that you want to share it,

Ever heard of a diary?

Write your issues in a diary so you can tear through the paper and crush it in the palm of your hand,

Or be a keyboard warrior but when the words leap off the keyboard and make a mess on the screen don't expect us to understand,


Behind the screen I see your face,

Lost in the world of cyberspace,

Crash back down to Earth,

Tell the people who are worth your tears,

They've known you since birth,

They'll help you break through,

But your loved ones aren't enough, the whole world has to know...


Seems like you're digging holes again,

This time you're going to fall my friend,

Because you slag her off in your status,

Then you say it’s none our business,

Now it’s everybody's business and everyone's a witness cause' you shared it with the world...

At war in cyberspace, dodging bullets which crack through your screen,

You let off steam in the wrong place,

Now they're breathing fire back at you and it’s burning through your screen,


Behind the screen I see your face,

Lost in the world of cyberspace,

Crash back down to Earth,

Tell the people who are worth your tears,

They've known you since birth,

They'll help you break through,

But your loved ones aren't enough, the whole world has to know...


Write your issues in a diary,

Stab the shit out of the paper and watch as the pen bleeds ink,

Lock your inner beast inside it and unleash it when need be,

Turn over a new page and leave that last chapter behind...


Behind the screen I see your face,

Lost in the world of cyberspace,

Crash back down to Earth,

Tell the people who are worth your tears,

They've known you since birth,

They'll help you break through,

But your loved ones aren't enough, the whole world has to know...
