Inspired (if that's the appropriate word) by ubiquitous news reports about internet trolls, cyber bullying and suchlike. Uploaded now primarily because in response to a talk post from me unSane has kindly offered to take a shot at improving the overall sound via mastering alchemy - so in due course you'll see just how shit this version really sounds....

How come your Facebook heaven turned to hell?
Every little tweet
turning up the heat
jagged little spiteful post.
vicious and alive.
Babe, you're looking like a ghost
Don't worry none
Don't worry 'bout those stories 'bout you
I know why just as well as you know why
they're telling stories 'bout you
Face to face:
"I never meant to say those things"
Some are sad fools
Some are mad and cruel
Some just want to see you squirm
Don't respond to hate
Don't allow another turn
they're telling lies
don't listen to those stories 'bout you.
Like butterflies they'll just flutter by when they're tired
of telling stories 'bout you.
Beautiful, smart, cool -
babe that's why they hate you so.
Girl's not a fool
there's a golden rule
got to simply let it go.
just walk away from stories 'bout you.
Be subtle when you burst that bubble
don't double you're trouble telling stories 'bout you
