Welcome To The Internet- Bo Burnham Lyrics

The upbeat, almost circus-like romp “Welcome to the Internet” serves as a sort of conclusion to Bo Burnham’s May 2021 Netflix special, Inside.

Welcome to the internet! Have a look around
Anything that brain of yours can think of can be found
We’ve got mountains of content, some better, some worse
If none of it’s of interest to you, you’d be the first

Welcome to the internet! Come and take a seat
Would you like to see the news or any famous women’s feet?
There’s no need to panic; this isn’t a test, haha
Just nod or shake your head, and we’ll do the rest

Welcome to thе internet! What would you prefеr?
Would you like to fight for civil rights or tweet a racial slur?
Be happy! Be horny! Be bursting with rage!
We’ve got a million different ways to engage

Welcome to the internet! Put your cares aside
Here’s a tip for straining pasta; here’s a nine-year-old who died
We’ve got movies and doctors and fantasy sports
And a bunch of colored-pencil drawings of all the different characters in Harry Potter fucking each other

Welcome to the internet! Hold on to your socks
‘Cause a random guy just kindly sent you photos of his cock
They are grainy and off-putting; he just sent you more
Don’t act surprised, you know you like it, you whore

See a man beheaded, get offended, see a shrink
Show us pictures of your children, tell us every thought you think
Start a rumor, buy a broom, or send a death threat to a boomer
Or DM a girl and groom her, do a Zoom or find a tumor in your—
Here’s a healthy breakfast option, you should kill your mom
Here’s why women never fuck you; here’s how you can build a bomb
Which Power Ranger are you? Take this quirky quiz
Obama sent the immigrants to vaccinate your kids

Could I interest you in everything all of the time?
A little bit of everything all of the time?
Apathy’s a tragedy, and boredom is a crime
Anything and everything, all of the time
Could I interest you in everything all of the time?
A little bit of everything all of the time?
Apathy’s a tragedy, and boredom is a crime
Anything and everything, all of the time

You know, it wasn’t always like this

Not very long ago, just before your time
Right before the towers fell, circa ’99
This was catalogs, travel blogs, a chatroom or two
We set our sights and spent our nights waiting
For you!

You, insatiable you
Mommy let you use her iPad; you were barely two
And it did all the things we designed it to do
Now, look at you! Oh, ha, look at you!
You, you! Unstoppable, watchable
Your time is now; your inside’s out; honey, how you grew
And if we stick together, who knows what we’ll do?
It was always the plan to put the world in your hand

Could I interest you in everything all of the time?
A bit of everything all of the time?
Apathy’s a tragedy, and boredom is a crime
Anything and everything, all of the time
Could I interest you in everything all of the time?
A little bit of everything all of the time?
Apathy’s a tragedy, and boredom is a crime
Anything and everything and anything and everything
And anything and everything and
All of the time

About

The upbeat, almost circus-like romp in “Welcome to the Internet” can be seen as a kind of conclusion to Bo Burnham’s May 2021 Netflix special, Inside; it starkly contrasts with the downward motion of the previous song, “All Time Low.” The lyrics expose the seemingly limitless and massive amounts of online stuff that people might use as a diversion.

The topic matter is comparable to that of tracks like “Welcome to YouTube” from his March 2009 self-titled special or “We Think We Know You” from December 2013’s what.

the latter of which included a section in which an agent advises Bo to simplify his message:Okay, so young people want jokes that they can identify with.

So, why not compose a ridiculous song about Facebook?

When viewed as a whole, INSIDE makes reference to VR and the internet in several places when people are only engaging in “digital space.” This song is what transports the audience and us into the “digital universe” he alludes to.
