about

I wrote this song in 2018 in response to what I saw as a toxic climate of rage dominating conversations on digital platforms and spilling over into our “real” lives. Looking back at it now from 2020, I can’t help but notice how much more things have intensified on that front.

lyrics

The age of innocence is dead
blame is a national pastime
in a courtroom drama of ones and zeroes
our humanity is on trial

guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty of tearing each other apart
with outrage and soundbites
the trial is over, the verdict is in
and now we’re gonna pay for our digital sins

the cause of every primitive war
lies just beneath our civilized facades
and when these cheap rubber masks fall to our feet
they reveal the savage faces
of predators and suspects

guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty of tearing each other apart
with outrage and soundbites
the trial is over, the verdict is in
and now we’re gonna pay for our digital sins
digital sins, digital sins, digital sins, digital sins

guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty
guilty of paying no attention
to anything longer than a soundbite
guilty of paying no attention
to anything longer than a soundbite
guilty of paying no attention
to anything longer than a soundbite
the trial is over, the verdict is in
we’re gonna pay for our digital sins
guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
guilty, we’re all guilty
we’re all guilty of future crimes
