lyrics

Shelter in Place

Capitalism is on pause
suddenly, a socialist chasm
although we didn’t vote for it
So bizarre, this rigor-moratorium
morality not heralded,
nothing essential to skim

Confined population
Our homes, our cells
Afraid to go out in fear of a bout
of sweats or chills or toilet stalls
of strangers in masks
surreal epithetical spill

as long as the virus doesn’t get me
My free time’s mine
as long as I don’t get sick
I’ll get paid to be benign

I’ll set my own vacation
Auto-pilot: Go!
But the fear sets in - who gets sick next?
Am I sick? Will I know?

Election is irrelevant
Democracy, a ghost.
Martial law without a shot fired,
(well, only one.
A security guard in Michigan)
Martial law contagion

Ready to reel you in
Just stay inside and hope
Cause it’s six feet apart or six feet under
Don’t breathe in, don’t vote

From cars to respirators
From fashion design to masks
How can you re-tool
Subterfuge life’s centrifuge

Don’t stand too close
Cause it’s six feet apart or under
Don’t breathe don’t touch
Horizontal’s better than perpendicular

We’re all on pause
It’s so bizarre
Let’s get paid to stay indoors

Don’t look deeper
Don’t look any further
Don’t look in the mirror

Don’t leave without sanitizer
Don’t forget to cover your face
Wash your hands
Don’t touch your face

Don’t stand too close
Cause it’s six feet apart or under
Don’t breathe don’t touch
Horizontal’s better than perpendicular

Election is irrelevant
Democracy, a ghost.
All irrelevant
The old days, a ghost.
