The Pains of Growing out now

More from Alessia Cara:

If there’s a God
do you think he’s looking down
curled up on his couch right now?
as we fail to figure it out
does he turn down the sound?
is he proud?
are we proud?

Guess we forgot
how to live a life with no filter
making boring people famous
let’s pretend they’re fascinating
let’s tell little girls
that pretty girls are better
or that pigment or religion really matters

we’re in some trouble
Mr. Maker
don’t turn away from your screen
at least the bubble
that we’ve created
could make for some good TV

oh, Mr. Man Upstairs
I know you’re tuning in up there
way up there
would you care
to answer my question?
oh, the land of poor taste
the spectacle of cut and paste
that we’ve made
would you say
please say
it was worth the 7 days

(verse 2)
does he hang his head
at all the greed we possess?
as the anti-social media
perpetuates the mess
maybe it’s a test
maybe he’s upset
by the loose-ends
stressed, like the rest of us
it happens to the best of us God
or is it Mr. G to me?
I hope that through the static you’ll show us the clarity
‘cause it’s hard to find the silver lining in the bittersweet
wonder if you’re praying for us
before you go to sleep?
do you sleep in peace?


don’t touch the remote
we’ll be back in a moment
we are not hopeless
we are just coping
the mayhem is volant
but it ain’t showbiz
reality’s potent
chaotic, I know it
but we’re growing
have some hope in us
were we worth all the time you gave up?
