about

We sure live in a strange world! Where image is more important that facts. When our image is more important than who we really are. Social media can me an amazing place, but it can also be a strange place. Where people would do just about anything for a little attention. That's what this song is about.
Be yourself, be strange. You are enough! Don't take life & yourself so seriously! ;)

lyrics

It all started well and in good fun
Until being good was not enough
You had the talent to take it far
But you wanted to be his star

All the attention cannot compare
To that one like and that one share
So you did what you had to to be seen
What does it matter if it's not real

What a strange world
Where all that matters Is your number of followers
Since you can buy them, no need to worry
You'll have enough to show your popularity

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world

You had the look many only dream of
But it didn't make you happy
You wanted it to fit your personality
Cause being yourself was not enough

You decided to take things up a notch
That your look needed a touch up
You started with your face and now you see
No one recognizes who you used to be

But in this strange world
It don't matter as long as you have the followers
You're unhappy? Just change your body
Who cares what you'll look like when you're 40

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world


What made you decide that being yourself wasn't good enough?
That you have to wear a mask to get the attention and love?
You seek to be well known rather than worth knowing
You want to become a star without having to do anything

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world
