Lyrics

This desperate need to constantly share
The comfort we take (hey), thinking someone is there

Everyone wants to show you everything is fine, fine; fine

Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day
Everybody wanna overload on information

The need to connect with someone out there
Unfounded hope (oh), in unbounded prayers

(Everyone wants to show you everything is fine, fine; fine)

Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day
Everybody wanna overload on information
Sometimes, I wanna leave this star behind; get lost in the ocean of the night
Find an island in the sky far from information

My friends they try to tell me everything is fine, fine; fine

They want to show that they’re OK
Every detail of their day, all that information
They want to show us what they’ve seen and know that we’re listening
To all their information

Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day
Everybody wanna overload on information
Sometimes, I wanna leave this star behind; get lost in the ocean of the night
Find an island in the sky far from information

Do you wanna fly away with me?
Our best friend could be a cosmic chimpanzee
We’ll break the chains and be set free from information

We could leave this star behind; find an island is the sky
Far away from information
