They’ve been calling me crazy Stocking food for 14 days Just in case Big brother doesn’t come and save me Ya think its a little hasty Being so concerned with my safety But now its a State of Emergency Shutting down borders and calling it security Stocking up on TP Spaghetti and freezer meat And if I have time maybe a couple luxuries Mom wants to know when I’m leaving the states Dad thinks its a hoax and not up for debate I keep trying to give the situation more weight Dude’s gotta be careful-he’s sixty eight Too late to escape Shoulda left by now But that was my mistake Fates tied to this place Time to bunker down for 14 days Welcome everyone to the Quarantine Mixtape

Fuckin’ POTUS Playin' it off like the lefts got a motive Didn’t act for three weeks and now project orange refuses to own it I keep checking out these videos from Italy Bleeding through my feed like it’s another world entirely People seizing in their beds Barely breathing, left for dead Once the anxiety is warranted and not just in my head We missed the mark on this Pissing the time we were given People in ignorant bliss Asked to stay home but they kept on livin’ Shit I’m a chronic asthmatic Now I have to think about grocery tactics All this shit like a sci fi classic Crazy plot thats poorly acted And i’m just waitin’ on someone I can believe To tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie Tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie Cause everyone says panic And I can’t fuckin’ stand it So tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie I’m glued to the tv Nothing can free me From the grasp screen These suits at the podium acting carefree Waiting for governors to bend the knee Every night in my dreams I sit and suffocate while the Senators scream Oh you cant breathe? Well unfortunately We’re out of ventilators We have 2 you’re patient 3 And then they let me seize Argue over policy While my lungs bleed And I am left just wheezing at the feet Of fucks who don’t think my life might worth saving Sayin’ we cant lose the economy Hey this is my life we’re debating And theres no one to believe To tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie Tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie Cause everyone says panic And I can’t fuckin’ stand it So tell me I’m fine Tell me I’m fIne Even if its a lie

In The City 02:53
Day Thirteen Still inside TV says that This is life Till June? Crisis has me waking up at noon Sleep through my classes Camera off if its on zoom Cause I’m not taking chances Of forgetting I’m on video Don't want the class to catch me dancing Cause I just can’t sit still no more They say its one month but it could be four These walls are all I see Lock the door and break the key As long as I can breathe I’ll stay inside with only me but My apartment’s driving my crazy It’s hard to stay sane when hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away The same sweater for thirteen days Hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away I wonder how long I’ll wait Before the isolation drives me insane I wonder how long I’ll stay When hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away In the city You never really thought you could die Suffocating With only strangers in sight Three months later and I’m still stuck inside this place Everyone is back out living but still I hesitate Cuz I see the numbers rising up everyday And I won’t close my eyes and pretend it’s all ok It just doesn't work that way Political actors Keep enhancing disasters By downplaying factors With propaganda To distract From their powerful backers Lately I feel like when I scream into the void Its the only place left that my voice doesn't get destroyed My apartment’s driving my crazy It’s hard to stay sane when hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away The same sweater for thirteen days Hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away And I wonder how long I’ll wait Before the isolation drives me insane And I wonder how long I’ll stay When hope’s gone It’s gone It’s gone away In the city You never really thought you could die Suffocating With only strangers in sight In the city You never really thought you could die Suffocating With only strangers in sight
