Digital Dread

From Digital Delight
From Digital Delight

There’s one unread message in my inbox and I’m
Too much of a coward to read it
There was a time your words meant everything to me, but
I don’t think I’m obliged to take this

Ooh, it’s the fear and the dread
Waiting here
What’s been said about me this time?

Every day it’s the same
I’m sick of losing this game
I got that digital dread, dread
So throw your hate at my name
And if it sticks I’ll explain
You give me that digital dread, dread

This right here is my soul and I’m willing to bear it
Could you honestly say the same about yourself?
It’s not like I’m ever gonna give up my position
Go take your criticisms somewhere else

Ooh, it’s a drain on my mind
You! You’re a pain
The way you start with all the same lines

[Chorus]

My openness
Is not weakness
But I confess
It leaves me restless, yes

I can’t work with your voice in my head
Always twisting the things that I said
Find somebody to bother instead
Had enough of that digital dread

Every day it’s the same
I think I just lost the game
I got that digital dread, dread
So throw your hate at my name
And if it sticks I’ll explain
You give me that digital dread, dread

C’mon c’mon c’mon give it to me now
That digital dread
C’mon c’mon c’mon gonna paint a big
Fat ‘X’ on my head
You give me that digital dread, dread
