One second you can conquer the world and suddenly you have never felt so low
When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself.

Oh the modern age
With technology so great
Must it be that we forget ourselves
To see beneath the fake?

With our iPods blasting, we cheer
In our brains, we succumb
In our body, we morph
Into something so numb

With our ears, we listen
To the beating of a drum
The heart that is pounding
With our senses, so dumb

To see yourself truly
You must not give in
To what is around you
To the World - our sin.

The world has certainly conformed to blocking out reality, hasn't it. You hardly see a person look up to share a smile as you pass anymore. Sigh... Anyway, great job! Really describes the common public today.
