the band in my head

Verse:

In these strange and scary days

Uncertain fear of what 's next plays

Once so certain, now lost and alone

Part self-inflicted, part the unknown


 

Pre- chorus:

Locusts swarm and mental dust bowl rages

Imaginary monsters and foolish sages


 

Verse:

Looking at the world through painted-on eyes,

Driven to genocide by black-hearted lies

Pied Piper of Destruction sings his one-note song,

One by one destroyed until normal is gone


 

Pre-chorus:

Locusts swarm and mental dust bowl rages

Imaginary monsters and foolish sages


 

Chorus:

There's a panic among the people,

There's a blight coming down

Crisis the likes we've never seen

Caught between pandemic and clown


 

Verse:

One way is disease and the other his lies,

We've got to prevail if we're ever hope to rise

Between the anvil hammer and the urgency of now,

Got to make things right, just a question of how


 

Pre-chorus:

Locusts swarm and mental dust bowl rages

Imaginary monsters and foolish sages


 

Chorus:

There's a panic among the people,

There's a blight coming down

Crisis the likes we've never seen

Caught between pandemic and a clown


 

End
