The Race To Immunity


The bloody fields

Of restlessness

I walk the valley

Of where I dread

The death of it all

Can it be beaten with a vaccine?

The pounding in my chest

Escalated by caffeine

Makes me so anxious

Fiending for more

And more, alone

The mountains of panic

Weighs down on me now

Where am I going?

Just "crazy"?

Or to anywhere other than "right here"?

The bonkersness I feel

The madness is so real

Time to open up my head

And stir the brain of soup I have

And feed it to my friends

And ask them, "do I taste lovely?"

I wonder what they would say

Outside, it is dark and wet

Inside, I am wild and insane

My mind is untamed

And I'm needy of affection

You know?

Just a woman's heart, to love me

But no matter how many stimuluses we get

I can't buy loving

I'm drowning in a puddle of fear

What's gonna happen to us all this year?

It's not a safe world yet

Are they really gonna put microchips

__in our heads?
