Craving views and attention is at sight
Doing something interesting, quickly grab my phone
This life is a trap and is dark like night
Why is it important we get the picture just right?
Or if we don’t get enough likes we frown and moan
Craving views and attention is at sight
Feeding off the adoration of others to shine bright
Thinking it’s the gateway to happiness, but it’s a loan
This life is a trap and is dark like night
Being alone with nothing gives everyone a fright
So we buy nice things like a Kardashian clone
Craving views and attention is at sight
Happiness doesn’t mean you have it all just right,
But being thankful to the Lord for keeping you in the zone
This life is a trap and is dark like night
Don’t change who you are, you’re pure like light
Stay humble, don’t get caught in the life on your phone
Craving views and attention is at sight
This life is a trap and is dark like night
