Meta to some extent

I’ve been needy of a comment or a like or friend request.
I found myself posting things to set a personal best.
Of likes and shares and replies with a hearty ‘yes’.
It’s addictive and restrictive and a fruitless shallow quest.
Just another track of vocals to sound like Elliott Smith.
A whisper underneath or a double sung forthwith.
But then another and another and another to the fifth.
My mind and actions not my own under control of the sith.
Gonna be a late night, a late night.
Gonna be a late night at the DAW.
Gonna be a late night a late night.
Gonna be a late night for shock and awe.
Pull up the familiar template then tweak the kick and snare
Don’t leave them any doubt or questions hanging in the air.
Double track the guitars pan them right and left.
Put on a high pass filter to make them sound the best.
Pursue the perfect plugin
Vanquish with VSTs
No one cares for thoughtful lyrics
Just full on compressor squeeze
