Little Screens © Martin Kerr 2016

VERSE 1
I thought this thing would make me more creative
They told me buying this would give me time
So why have I become so vegetative?
This little voice keeps screaming in my mind...

CHORUS:
Take a walk, lift your head and see the sunrise
You don’t need to read the news today it’s mostly lies.
If you wanna know you’re not alone,
get your fingers off your phone,
Get up out of your comfort zone and improvise.

VERSE 2
Now I’ve lost years of life to doing research.
Looking at the world through little screens
Got the knowledge of the ages at my fingers
But sitting here won’t teach me what it means

CHORUS

BRIDGE C, Dm, F, G x2
I won’t be tethered to technology no more
I feel my feathers getting lighter than before.

Breakdown Verse:
So I’m stepping out to see we’re all creative
I’m turning off to take a little time
Don’t need one more electrical sedative...

CHORUS:
Take a walk, lift your head and see the sunrise
You don’t need to read the news today its all lies
If you wanna know you’re not alone,
get your fingers off your phone…

Coda:
Give me clouds, give me stars and give me sunsets
Gotta leave the house, leave the keyboard and the regrets.
If you wanna know you’re not alone,
get your fingers off your phone.
There are friends all over town you haven’t met yet.
There is so much more to see beyond the internet.
Empty pockets, empty hands and you’ll be all set.
