I’ve been staring at screens too long.
Yes, I’ve been staring at screens too long.
Don’t get me wrong,
It’s just that
I’ve been staring at screens too long.

Look up — Look up —
You’re staring at a screen!
Look up — Look up —
Do you know what I mean?

We stare at screens as if they hold all the answers.
Now, yes, there are some answers in there, but do you really think there are so many answers in there that the screen deserves your undivided attention?
I don’t think so, no, not even close.

I’ve been staring at screens too long —
Blinded by the light-emitting diode, another runner in the night —
running, running, running
till all goes dark
