Box a nigga in a zone of alienation, and throw the key into the Chesepeake,

 

Shot on sight if you dare to step outside, breaking the law and the quarantine.

 

Worldwide phenomenon, fear and anxiety spreads from Maryland to Mozambique,

 

Safe inside four pristine white walls, sanitized two times a day, at minimum.

 

70% isopropyl applied topically every hour, latex gloves just to pump gas,

 

Mask on when anxiety gets too high, skin fissuring via intense water erosion.

 

Society flash froze with the vegetables, the status quo is forever broken,

 

Normal died four months ago, we’re living in the rotting corpse of the old world.

 

Introverts and homebodies rejoice, socially acceptable to click “Add To Cart”

 

Without the stigma of being anti social, in a new era of social distancing.

 

Involuntarily held hostage, literally we’re in the thick of it, witnessing

 

History online, no one what happens after, right now it’s all speculation.

 

Box a nigga in a zone of alienation, and throw the key into the Chesepeake,

 

Shot on sight if you dare to step outside, breaking the law and the quarantine.

 

Worldwide phenomenon, fear and anxiety spreads from Maryland to Mozambique,

 

Safe inside four pristine white walls, sanitized two times a day, at minimum.
