Disconnected…

Sometimes we get so tied up in social media, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, they have the power to connect us with people around the world, I’ll admit I’m a bit of a victim to the WWW too! It’s gave us the power to access any information – instantly. We can connect with the other side of the world, instantly, its one of the greatest inventions in humanity. However, the world wide web has a dark side, and that is the danger of disconnection from life, society and most of all ourselves. This is a song that highlights how important it is to disconnect and re-connect with presence to the loved ones in your life!!

DISCONNECTED… 5SOS

Life’s, a tangled web
Of cell phone calls and hashtag I-don’t-knows
And you, you’re so caught up
In all the blinking lights and dial tones
I admit I’m a bit of a victim in the worldwide system too
But I’ve found my sweet escape when I’m alone with you

Tune out the static sound of the city that never sleeps
Here in the moment on the dark side of the screen

I like the summer rain
I like the sounds you make
We put the world away
We get so disconnected
You are my getaway
You are my favorite place
We put the world away
Yeah we’re so disconnected Oh oh o-o-oh, oh oh o-oh
We’re so disconnected
Oh oh o-o-oh, oh oh o-oh

Hands around my waist
You’re counting up the hills across the sheets
And I’m a falling star
A glimmer lighting up these cotton streets
I admit I’m a bit of a fool for playing by the rules
But I’ve found my sweet escape when I’m alone with you

Tune out the static sound of the city that never sleeps
Here in the moment on the dark side of the screen

I like the summer rain
I like the sounds you make
We put the world away
We get so disconnected

You are my getaway
You are my favourite place
We put the world away
Yeah we’re so disconnected

Turn off the radio
Those late night TV shows
Hang up the telephone
And just be here with me

Turn off the radio
Those late night TV shows
Hang up the telephone
And just be here with me

I like the summer rain
I like the sounds you make
We put the world away
We get so disconnected
You are my getaway
You are my favourite place
We put the world away
Yeah we’re so disconnected

I like the summer rain
I like the sounds you make
We put the world away
We get so disconnected

You are my getaway
You are my favourite place
We put the world away
Yeah we’re so disconnected

  1. Kelly there are so many vices that many are crippled by , take for granted the simplicity something that essential to me and vital for pure state of mind . As you seen I am not there at times others I am but it can be tormenting agony where it hurts so much to Breathe and fill your essence with life .

    Who is 5 sos ? Never heard of them my mate has a band called Weigh the Anchor check them out sometime.

    1. We all have vices, nobody is a saint – yet in every saint, there hides a sinner, and in every sinner, hides a saint!

      5 Seconds of Summer, an Australian band and I will have a search for Weigh the Anchor…
