Keep Your Distance

 

Stuck at school

Am I a fool

For going there

When there's a flu

 

So dangerous

If you're too close

Keep your distance

I suppose

 

Confined in your home

Where you're mostly alone

Sucks if you have roommates

That can't turn off their phone

 

When you're in a meeting

And your voice can be heard

By every single being

All around the world

 

Keep your distance please

I'd rather have space than

A million eyes on me

 

"Excuse me,"

"Is your temperature too low?"

"Not exactly…"

"Miss, I think you should go home-"

 

I was only under by 2°

Not like it was gonna kill me

My mask will keep me warm

Until I begin to freeze

 

Keep your distance please

All of us are poison

But some of us are lethal

 

I don't want to be

The reason you're all gone

You can fight this upheaval

 

Chaos erupts

If you get caught

You'll burn to a crisp

And be soon out of luck

 

But that lava expands

Creates more land

Pain and fear is instilled

But we get more in the end

 

Take in the view

See how we can start anew

Chaos is chaos if we believe

 

The things we never knew

But still kept at a distance

If only we took the time to see

 

Seems like I'm just rambling

On unnecessary things

Is it worth understanding

The people we can be?

 

Keep your distance please

If you're not willing to change

Never doubt the unknown

You'll end up insane
