This is what we get.

We've been starved for attention,
Lonely and bored.
Perhaps we're lethargic-

Or is it something more?

To make sense of it is only a dream,
only a dream…
But that's what you get.

A teenage virgin writing erotic poetry-

That's what you get.

Attention-seeking hounds feeding off myspace fantasies-

That's what you get.

The little boy who got kidnapped after he ran away from home-

That's what you get.

A double funeral after her boyfriend died unexpectedly-

That's what you get.

I know we're all suckers for wet dreams,
But is there no better way?

Looking for any direction to change,
to make monotony go away,
Oh-so starved for attention…

This is what we get.

Is it only me,
Or is it about time
To get something else?
