It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way

There’s hundreds of thousands already dead
Double digit millions been sick in bed
You got blood on your hands and rocks in your head
And it doesn’t have to be this way

You lie through your teeth to those gullible folks
When you say that Covid is a big fat hoax
But you know that this virus is no fricking joke
And it doesn’t have to be this way

If you don’t get tested than you won’t get sick
You don’t keep track it’s like a magic trick
It is what it is, whatever you say,
But we all know it doesn’t work that way

Doctor Atlas, he knows best
You don’t need masks and you don’t need tests
Now the virus is surging from east to west
And it doesn’t have to be this way

It’s not your people, it’s the Democrats
Those blue state governors, they’re the autocrats
Locking everything down for the scaredy-cats
But you know it’s not really that way

You’re a super spreader, that’s for sure
Spreading viral lies and verbal manure
You got foot in mouth disease and there ain’t no cure
And it doesn’t have to be this way

You know what goes up must come down
It’s one of things that makes the world go ‘round
Say whatever you want, no matter what you say,
We know it doesn’t have to be this way

Mother Nature said to Father Time
These human beings better get into line
What they’ve done to this world is a capital crime
And it doesn’t have to be this way
It doesn’t have to be this way
It doesn’t have to be this way
