My computer thinks I'm gay
I threw that piece of junk away
On the Champs-Élysées
As I was walking home
This is my last communicate
Down the super highway
All that I have left to say
In a single tome

I've got too many friends too many people
That I ll never meet, I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for, 'cause I'll never be there

If I could give it all away, would it come back to me someday?
Like a needle in the hay, or an expansive stone
I've got a reason to declaim,
Applications are to blame, for all my sorrow,
My pain, feeling so alone

I've got too many friends too many people
That I ll never meet, I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for, 'cause I'll never be there
Too many friends too many people
That I ll never meet, I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for, 'cause I'll never be there

My computer thinks I'm gay
What's the difference anyway?
When all the people do all day
It staring into a phone

I've got too many friends too many people
That I'll never meet, I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for, 'cause I'll never be there
Too many friends too many people
That I ll never meet, I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for, 'cause I'll never be there
I'll never be there, I'll never be there
I'll never be there, I'll never be there

    My InterpretationI just love the following line: 'If I could give it all away, would it come back to me someday?' I think the protagonist is very courageous in getting rid of all that social media that defines his life 'my computer thinks I'm gay'. This song is clearly criticizing all those 'friends' or followers you have on social media that you'll probably never meet in person.

    While it's great to spread your ideas and find likeminded people, at one point in your life, especially if you're famous, it can become overwhelming. The protagonist is sad or better feels sorry for all those people he can never be there for although he knows how much they'd love a minute of his time. But he can't. And then, there are all those applications (apps), he's talking about, that he blames his sorrow on because they made his dilemma possible. The line 'When all the people do all day It staring into a phone' is the strongest and clearest line to see him criticizing the new era of smartphones and how people live more in virtual reality than in their normal life.
