Pandemic - A musical journey of collective emotions

The year is 2022. The world still struggles for normalcy after enduring two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look both back and ahead to try to make sense of it all.

So many questions, and so many  more remain unanswered. How did this happen? Who is responsible? Did we respond appropriately? Was it as bad as reported, or perhaps worse? How and when will it finally end? What will be the ultimate toll? Have humans entered a new age? Was the prior age so bad? Were medical advances really made? Were they worth the risks? Was an ulterior motive behind it? Was humanity irreparably damaged?

Well I cannot answer these questions, because I'm merely a songwriter. Maybe someday all will become clear. Some will have been right, and some wrong. Some will live in history as the heroes, while others will turn out to be evil villans. It's not for me to predict. However, here I can offer you some new music that in my mind conveys the emotional journey the COVID-19 pandemic has put our world through. I hope that you find this new piece unnerving, haunting, dark, frightening, uplifting, calming, and most of all, stimulating.

Lyrics


Pandemic

They’ll scare you to an early grave, Their mind-control has you enslaved
Evil ones have plans for you, Control you with their viral flu

Mind control through propaganda, Censoring the ones that matter
Infiltration of a nation, Two-faced puppets with an agenda
Soon you’re told you must conform, Be injected with their poison
Watch your back; they’re after you, Hysteric madness over the flu

Better listen (to) what I say, Evil won’t just go away
Unless we fight them every day, Those politicians will remain

Mind control through propaganda, Censoring the ones that matter
Infiltration of a nation, Two-faced puppets with an agenda
Soon you’re told you must conform, Be injected with their poison
Watch your back; they’re after you, Hysteric madness over the flu

What can I do?  Where can I go without them watching me?
When will I get, my freedom back, and my privacy?

He’s watching and waiting. The Eagle eyes his prey.
He will take flight with the Angels, who serve justice the American way.

Wake up sons and daughters of freedom, listen here.
It’s time we get together and end this tyranny.

The giant is awakened and he’s angry what he sees
The evil reign is over; we’re taking back our country.
