Living in the R.T.

High above the clutter of CAT-5 wires and routers
Lies a world of social pleasure
Greatly overrated by those who prefer
Escape from true connection
And moral measure
Real-time beyond compare
Genuine and thumb less communications
Old fashioned without a doubt
But it's the perfect mode for authentic situations

If you want me
I'm living in the R.T.
No LOLs, emoticons, no shill
Ain’t no worry
Thriving pixel-free
Every moment brings a real-life thrill

Isn’t it great to know
Potential friends are just a few feet from me
But who needs that kind of drama anyway
I don’t care about your status
I don’t want to see your pics
I’ll take a real hug and a smile any day
What happened to the good old days
When life was really live baby
Listen - all I can say is
If you’re looking for me you know where to find me

If you want me
I'm living in the R.T.
No LOLs, emoticons, no shill
Ain’t no worry
Thriving pixel-free
Every moment brings a real-life thrill

Multitasking – so distracting
Your avatar – is quite bizarre
You say fast and easy – I say ultra queasy
Put away the device and take a big slice of life

Real-time beyond compare
Genuine and thumb less communications
"Old fashioned" without a doubt
But it's the perfect mode for authentic situations

If you want me
I'm living in the RT
No LOLs, emoticons, no shill
Ain’t no worry
Thriving pixel-free
Every moment brings a real-life thrill

If you want me
I'm living in the RT
No LOLs, emoticons, no shill
Ain’t no worry
Thriving pixel-free
Every moment brings a real-life thrill
