It's no different here than it was back then.
Well, it's a little different.
The faces are well – faceless.
Images are blurred,
copy and pasted to suite another person's needs,

The bullies still exist.
Though this time they aren't just the bullies of the past.
They're the folks that were bullied.
The screen gives them the power to feel empowered.

The cliques still exist.
The fat rule the forums; the skinny ones blend with them.
Blacks love whites and whites love blacks.
Skin is all the same on a screen
or are folks just fooling themselves?

Yeah, with technology we've come a long way
until you wake up and realize you're in
Internet High School.
