Raising expectations to an unsustainable level
As the crowd goes wild, flying over the gap between fiction and reality
Making the question of how they would land a scary topic
Pitching sideways on the landing, the public crashed and burned, and that’s why we can’t have nice things
Putting a piece of yourself out into the digital world
Organizing a public persona that the private one hides behind
Still, some of the private part leaks through the online words and pictures

Her eyes leaked water, at least that’s how he looked at it
Useless showing one’s emotions in public like that

Sighing, Mike got into his car to head out3
People are always looking for an angle, an easy way in or out
Undermining their altruistic public face
So sick of false narratives that sell whitewashed souls
Hey maybe it’s time to shove back
