Christina writes she wishes her boss would combust
She's supposed to be concocting expense claims
But she's uploading photos to Flickr and linking across

Anushka scrobbled Hefner at 3.29
By half four she'd played some unacclaimed album
And regretted it when it showed up on her profile online
And now she's playing Beirut and Pipas to make amends
Am I the only one left who's too scared to be caught in the lens?

And Adam posts a message on Sylvia's wall
Now Sylvie feels obliged to respond
Because it's public domain and she knows she'll get caught, it won't stop
Here's Alice starting groups so postmodern it hurts
Here's Edward telling all of his friends that
He'll be leaving his boyfriend, you heard it here first, and that's harsh
And everyone knows every detail of everyone's lives
Am I the only one left who's too scared to be caught in the lens?

Woke up at dawn with a head like a stone as the radio splutters and sighs
The light splits the curtains and stays uninvited, blinding a path through my eyes
I sit and I write up the previous night with the cynical spin you'd expect
The words that I type and complicit with hype and the photos bereft of context
I click on your profile and see you new picture, your smile lights up the page

Francesca's hit the rocks in applying in for jobs
Falls down because the interview panel's getting wise to the truth she supplies through her blog and it's
(The interview questions go something like this)
"Francesca, are you ready to manage a team?"
"Francesca, can you lead by example when your hobbies are drinking White Lightning and eating ice cream?"
And everyone knows every detail of everyone's lives
