Lyrics

Can’t eat or sleep another night, because I got neon in my vision, a heartbeat out of time.

Take me, back to where i recognize my mind, ooh ooh.

Because I want to get, another step ahead, because simulated living, is pulled over my eyes.

Because I want to get, another step ahead, I'm scrolling for attention, the WI-FI's keeping me alive.

The Synthetic Life.

I live my life online, the world around me just passes by.

The Synthetic Life.

I can't relax or stop the ride, so plug me into your brand new life.

I’m wound up tight another night, because I got neon in my vision, a heartbeat out of time.

Take me, because the television's capturing my mind, oh no.

Because I want to get, another step ahead, because simulated living is pulled over my eyes.

Because I want to get, another step ahead, I'm scrolling for attention, the WI-FI's keeping me alive.

The Synthetic Life.

I live my life online, the world around me just passes by.

The Synthetic Life

I can't relax or stop the ride, so plug me into your brand new life

Live through a screen and you will see, there is no one there for you and you never knew.

the world outside is dark tonight, so run till you reach the sun, you don't need anyone.

(music interlude)

The Synthetic Life.

I live my life online, the world around me just passes by.

The Synthetic Life.

I can't relax or stop the ride so plug me into your brand new life

(repeat x3)

I think Synthetic Life is my new E3 jam. Sorry Lockdown, you had a good run.

Are people enjoying this ironically? Different strokes for different folks, but man those lyrics are just cringe. Like... Shrek SNAP cringe meme levels of cringe.

the hot synth is all I need. The audio can just be jibberish for all I care.

They should do more songs like Wonderwall, where you lose when you pay attention to the lyrics.

What, do you think Lockdown's lyric's are great or something? Quality jams transcend bad lyrics.

Also this might just be my own personal distinction, but that's also a key difference between a "good jam" and a "good song".

I had heard this a couple times before streams, but this is a jam. Glad it's on YouTube now.

No, I don't. I also didn't see a lot of people asking about the lyrics to Lockdown when that was birthed into the GB videos.

Personally, I like the song. Its not quite an ear bug, but it is not annoying on loop before the show either. No irony there, its a nice song.

For some reason out of nowhere this jam popped up in my head last day and it drove me nuts not knowing where I've heard it, I had to google it to find out it was from GB's stand by screens haha.

It's a good jam!

After listen to the night shows last week, I started listening to OK Go music again and rewatching their great music videos. The Synthetic Life lyrics must have 'flip some neurons' that got me thinking about OK Go.
