Cosette: How strange, this feeling that I've found the Internet at last
This change, can people get a thousand hits so fast?
What's the matter with you, Cosette?
Have you been too much IRL?
So many things are dull, I'm too lazy to spell
In real life, there are so many boring assignments that I have to do
But online, there are people to chat with who constantly post new material too
And it seems that the world's at my fingertips
On my screen, just a sidebar away, beneath all those blips
Now I feel so alive, though I know it's not real
Everyone seems to care what I do, what I feel
In real life, they would call me insane, but online I can do as I please
No one knows, no one sees.
Valjean: Cosette, you're such a nerdy child
How socially inept you seem to me.
Believe me, if all our wi-fi power
Got knocked out for an hour
I bet that you would go crazy
From losing all your company
Cosette: There's so little you say that I'm longing to know
Of the blogs that you run and the gifs that you post
Valjean: It's "jifs", Cosette...
Cosette: There's so little you say of the fandoms you're in
Of the pairings you ship and the pics that you pin
So late, so late at night, the fanfic that you write.
In real life, I have food, clothes and shelter, but still I am not satisfied
But online, I can stay in a fantasy world I create till my brain becomes fried
Valjean: No more words, or I'll take your computer away
There are sites that are better unjoined; go outside and play
Cosette: In real life, I'm no longer a noob, and I yearn to go viral like you
Just show me what to do.
Valjean: You will learn, those who live life online all the time, have no lives.
Marius: In real life, I am still just the nobody loser I always have been
But online, I've been featured, re-tweeted, shared, forwarded, followed, and even linked in
Éponine, you're the friend who's reblogged me here
Thanks to you, I am one with this blog, and web fame is near
And I surf through a net that's uncensored and free
Éponine: Every word that he posts is a cookie for me
On the net, there's been no blog like his anywhere, anywhere I can find
I'll repost, I'll subscribe.
Marius and Éponine: In real life, I just want an escape from real life
Marius: On my dash
Éponine: Please don't crash
