"Synthesizer" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Mike Posner....
Fake your way through a conversation
Tell her all the things you wish were true
Maybe you're the voice of a generation
And a princess somewhere waits for you

But if you're never gonna change the world
If you're never gonna be a movie star
If you're never gonna change the world
Maybe you're looking too hard

Don't synthesizer her
Don't redesign her
She's no prize for
A synthesizer

Pretend you meet your own expectations
Add another name below your list
Maybe you're the next world wide sensation
You probably know a thousand ones like this

But if you're never gonna change the world
If you're never gonna be a movie star
If you're never gonna change the world
Maybe you're looking too hard

Don't synthesizer her
Don't redesign her
She's no prize for
A synthesizer

Who you gonna call when the spotlight flickers
What you gonna do when your curtain falls
Maybe you can make them not remember her
Maybe you won't end up alone

Don't synthesizer her
Don't redesign her
She's no prize for
A synthesizer

    My InterpretationA different type of song than typical of Mike Posner but I like it. The song is about a guy figuring a girl out. Every girl is beautiful in their own way. But don’t try to change her and don’t try to make her someone she’s not just to match your high expectations. She doesn’t deserve to be put on a pedestal by a guy who lies about who he is or of what he truly deserves. I think it's accepting the girl for who she is.

    General CommentI think the song is about leading a girl on.
    How you feed her lies and "fake your way through a conversation."
    But then he sings "If your never gonna be a movie star" then what's the point of lying?

    Also it's about being true to yourself and not putting a show on for everyone around you.
    "Pretend you meet your own expectations."

    "Who you gonna call when the spotlight flickers? What you gonna do when your curtain falls?"
    -When everything comes crashing down and the truth is possibly revealed, what will you do?
    How will you go on?

    "She's no prize for a synthesizer." - If you're gonna continue to lie or attempt to change the girl, then she's too good for you.
