The title "Photoshop The Moon" refers to our ever increasing need for perfection in the face of what's natural. A perfect white circle is not more beautiful than the moon with all of its craters. Similarly, our flaws and idiosyncrasies are what make us beautiful.

Technology and social media have a tendency to heighten our anxiety. We compare ourselves to artificial versions of others instead of recognizing that we are all flawed, and that that's ok.

I personally have grown out of love with the suburbia of my childhood and its perfectly manicured lawns. I find myself resenting the culture I live in for valuing status over environmentalism.

My forays into the world of online dating seem in line with what I've heard others say. For all of their potential, I only feel emptier after using dating apps. Judging others on edited selfies and witty one liners makes me apathetic towards towards those who could genuinely be great people.

This apathy, in turn, has contributed to my lack of socialization. I rationalize my seclusion with dedication to music, but that's just an excuse. The truth is I find visual and audio art more appealing than building relationships with others.

Being antisocial is a problem because organization and community are key tenants of socialism, my political philosophy. So I criticize capitalism while following it's rampant individualism.

LYRICS:
Sitting in my room fell in love with pixels
Photoshop the moon 'til it's artificial
Thought I was immune to the insanity
'Til I started analyzing my vanity

I don't want to go tonight
Rather stay in the pale blue light
I don't want to go tonight
Rather stay in the pale blue light

I can't download a new love
Looking for so long but it's not enough
I can't download a new love
Swiping left and right but I feel so numb

Everyone's amused by their constant news feed
Catching up on views of the tea, that's juicy
Hope I get more likes than on my last selfie
Maybe I can partner with a brand get wealthy

I don't want to go tonight
Rather stay in the pale blue light
I don't want to go tonight
Rather stay in the pale blue light

I can't download a new love
Looking for so long but it's not enough
I can't download a new love
Swiping left and right but I feel so numb
I can't download a new love
Looking for so long but it's not enough
I can't download a new love
Swiping left and right but I feel so numb
