As I Walked Out

Album: not on an album (2020)
  • As I walked out all the streets were empty
    The government said everyone should stay home
    And they spread fear and loathing and no hope for the future
    Not many did question this very strange move

    Well, on the government website from the 21st March, 2020
    It said COVID-19 was no longer high risk
    Then two days later they put us under lockdown
    Then why are we not being told the truth?

    By all the media outlets and the government lackeys
    Why is this not big news, why is it being ignored?
    Why no checks and balances, why no second opinions?
    Why are they working, and why are we not?

    But on the government website from the 21st March, 2020
    It said COVID-19 was no longer high risk
    Then two days later Boris put us under lockdown
    Why are we not being told the truth?

    By all the media outlets and the government lackeys
    Why is this not big news, why is it being ignored?
    Why no checks and balances, why no second opinions?
    Why are they working, and why are we not?
