I Think We'll Be Ok

by Matthew Welde

ain’t no telling when the creek 'gone rise

the air is wet, the water flies

we’re out of survival supplies

all i've got is little white lies

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

2020 had its fill

of staring at the world stand still

exercises in free will

killed just like a virus kills

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

i can’t find no work these days

every day’s a holiday

the government says patience pays

but it don’t pay me nowadays

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

buy my bread from the grocery store

never made my own before

eggs and yeast and flour are more

ingredients than i can afford

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

you’re allowed to go outside

but when you’re outside try to hide

wear this mask or else you’ll find

out that you’re the other kind

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

they say you must join a team

the right and left both make you scream

the truth is somewhere in between

power a pyramid scheme

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

turning on that tv screen

will make your mind a can of beans

and make you wish that your were clean

those dirty lies will make you mean!

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

the internet’s a launching pad

to drive you nuts and make you mad

tired of those youtube ads?

facebook found your deadbeat dad

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

don’t you wallow in despair

don’t you act like you don’t care

good things comes to the well prepared

so build a boat and float somewhere

i think we’re gonna be okay

 

tell them all where you are from

you were born to overcome

modesty so overdone

the quiet ones get overrun

i think we’re gonna be okay
