lyrics

Life is very boring, diversions overflowing,
The smartphone epidemic, apathetic ways.
We're running on the treadmill, life is at a standstill,
Running in the street is becoming so passe
They say we're more productive because we're more connected
but now we're working longer, where's the sense in that.
My online friends are plenty but I'm feeling lonely
We're hanging out together on a Facebook chat.

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.

Artificial flavours in water for consumers
Clean water running plenty from our kitchen tap.
We're busy being social staring at our iPhones
sitting in a cafe suggested by an app.
We're working hard to pay for a house we fell in love with
we never spend much time in because we're out all day.
Our texts are all corrected by inbuilt spelling checkers
The message becomes nonsense on LED display.

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.

Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.
