Coronavirus
I don't know what to thing about this virus
It started in China, now everybody in America is hidin'
There's no groceries 'cause people start to panic and buy it
The shelter empty, the ones who plenty, already stockpiling
Y'all making memes, think it's funny
Wait a week 'til the riots
Wait a month 'til the only way to eat is to be violent
The government's lyin', they're trying to keep us calm through the sirens
We know it's for real
And now all the pharmaceutical giants don't have the cure that they can sell you
So now everyone's dying
There's no vaccines and medication made that can fight it
I guess it's time to pray to God, we can't rely on the science

And everyone around me in a mask and some gloves
The stock market crashed, and the bank's 'bout to bust
Tell us "sanitize our hands, this will pass
It's a bug, stay inside, you'll be fine"
'Til we're trapped there for months

It's a ghost town
We're all in this together
They're closing all the stores down
We're headin' for shelter
It's a war now they'll always remember
We're locking our doors down
We're sticking together
It's a ghost town

This is a pandemic, but we don't listen to the news
'Cause they lied to us for years so how do we know that this is the truth?s
And most of us are young enough to think we're immune
So we just pass it on to people who won't survive like you
It's either worse than they're telling us or nothing at all
But the schools are shut down and ghosttowing them all
They go quarantine the city, block the road out of Dodge
Then tell us leaving our homes is breaking the law
This is just the beginning, you know it's gotta get worse
If the doctors get sic the hospitals won't work
The conspiracy theories all sound like facts, that's for sure
But the fact is, we're trapped on this planet called Earth

And the bleach gone, the bread gone, the water sold out
The meat gone, the milk gone, the pasta sold out
Don't leave anything for anyone, you hoard it for yourself
You'd rather them "go to Hell" than be a man and go and help

It's a ghost town
We're in this together
They're closing all the stores down
We're headin' for shelter
It's a war now they'll always remember
We're locking all our doors down
We're sticking together
It's a ghost town

We're hoping for the best but we're preparing for the worst
There's one thing we're not scared of: hard work
We're up against an enemy that doesn't have a face
There's no bombs we can drop
There's nowhere we can aim
There's no soldiers with a tank at the gates
There's no cure that we've got or a pill we can take
There's no food, it's been bought
The truth is we're afraid
We sit inside our rooms and we pray

It's a ghost town
We're in this together
They're closing the stores down
We're headin' for shelter
It's war now they'll always remember
We're locking all our doors down
We're sticking together
It's a ghost town
We're up against an enemy that doesn't hav
