Dangerous Games

The C Word

Give it No Power

Chorus:

Oh, I have seen dirty gloves and reused mask.

Body bags.

Trailers on ice.

Overflow of surplus caskets.

People planning for mystical attacks.

The government just pointing blame and their fingers back.

Its the no one to blame game in full effect.

Verse One :

I just keep the peace.

Please let me be.

I'm on the road simply being me.

I can't stay long, but here I am to sing this song and live again.

See, social distance is not my friend.

So , here I am to sing this song again.

Chorus:

Oh, I have seen dirty gloves and reused mask.

Body bags.

Trailers on ice.

Overflow of surplus caskets.

People pre-paring for mystical attacks.

The government just pointing blame and their fingers back.

Its the no one to blame game in full effect.

Verse Two:

It won't be long until we are all locked up.

Paying the price from the money machine.

Population control in high demand.

Now we are all quarantined.

There was one more turn.

I got caught up.

I thought it was safe, but it was not enough.

Laws were made.

Now here I am with ya'll.

Playing our shows.

And watching reruns from inside of a screen.

Hey! I am alive,

You know why?

To sing this song again.

Bridge:

I'm singing this song.

Its my right since I am free.

I'm singing this song.

Pleas (appease) to my sanity.

I'm singing this song.

Tired of the mysteries.

I'm singing this song.

Throw away the misery.

Chorus:

Oh, I have seen dirty gloves and reused mask.

Body bags.

Trailers on ice.

Overflow of surplus caskets.

People planning for mystical attacks.

The government just pointing blame and their fingers back.

Its the no one to blame game in full effect.

All I want to do is be free.

Prisoner # 745298312. Up next! Time to earn your rations.

It's believable if you believe it.
