lyrics

11 PM Sunday on a covid week
Busses are empty but lights are still on
You could think everything's the same
If not for the posters
And occasional blue screen

I tell myself I'm alone here
Just for the driver and another passenger
I still have not found a way to be nice and not let people in

(Now everyone is here together now everyone has to be saved)

It might not be
The most original simile
And now it's "we" against pitiless villainy
But there won't be a vaccine
If after this were like we used to be

News are that everyone will die
I call my friend and wish a happy birthday
He's been there a while
Finds it so hard when she has to decide

And someone finally got to decide
This is the culling, I have to go for a little more time
Did I spend all my life
Just for one event worthy to rhapsodize?

(If we follow our hearts)

It might not be
The most original simile
And now it's "we" against pitiless villainy
But there won't be a vaccine
If after this were like we used to be

There is writing on side of the building
It's all around since we got in to hiding
"If we get out alive
kill the strain that caused this life"
Kill the strain that caused this life
Sing it oh

Let's go back
To the way things were oh
Let's go back
To the way things were

It might not be
The most original simile
And now it's "we" against pitiless villainy
But there won't be a vaccine
If after this were like we used to be
