The picture I had in my head when writing and recording this song, was that of the beautiful people sitting on window panes, exposing their skin to the soothing rays of April sun. And underneath, the storefronts all boarded up to prevent thieves from getting in.
I can’t do much to help out in the current situation. The one thing I can do is sing about it. And man… there’s so much to sing about. There’s this undying optimism and firmness some people are showing. It’s something that I, with my innate tendency towards second-guessing find so genuinely amazing. There’s readiness to help. There’s compassion and understanding.
But then there’s the ugly too. The more time we spend indoors, the wilder the conspiracy theories floating around become. It was 5G yesterday, it’s Bill Gates now. What’s it gonna be tomorrow?
And there’s greed and opportunism of those who were just waiting for something like this to happen so that they could get the justification for their particular, selfish interests.
But hey, it’s not a weeping song. Not at all. If it resonates with you in any way, feel free to share it.
