The day when singers and so-called music artists have run out of things to croon about has finally come. Katy Perry is done singing about aliens, teenage dreams, and last Friday night, because everyone's favorite cocktease is now singing about Facebook!

Katy dropped her new single, Wide Awake, at the Billboard Music Awards last Sunday. She subsequently released a lyric video for the song, which you can watch in rapture above, that highlights her own career set to Facebook's Timeline profile.

The song has a pretty somber mood, with Katy singing about the highs and lows of her career and (presumably) her personal life.

I'm wide awake, yeah, I was in the dark. I was falling hard with an open heart. I'm wide awake, how did I read the stars so wrong? I'm wide awake, and now it's clear to me. That everything you see ain't always what it seems.

-- Katy Perry's Wide Awake

Wide Awake was written specially for Perry's upcoming 3D movie called Katy Perry: Part of Me, which hits theaters on July 5th.
