Still Not Ready to Die

about

Rock 'n' roll may not cure COVID-19, but it can still make you feel good. Shelter in place and self-medicate with some kick-ass rock that's just what the doctor ordered.

lyrics

Woke up this morning, the sky was fallin’
Sometimes it feels like it’s karma callin'
A feeling in the air that we just can’t breathe
We’re all stuck together and we can’t leave

I’m keeping tabs on the situation
This hasn’t been the ideal staycation
I’m disconnected but that won’t kill me
The toughest part is I feel so lonely

We made a mess of things, but we’ll never know why
You keep it coming, but were still not ready to die

Poison the water, and poison the air
Tell me it’s normal, I don’t really care
We never learn from the past ’til it’s finally too late
We said we’d listen to reason, but now we can’t wait

I’m keeping tabs on the situation
This hasn’t been the ideal staycation
I’m disconnected but that won’t kill me
The toughest part is I feel so lonely

We made a mess of things, but we’ll never know why
You keep it coming, but we’re still not ready to die

We reached the point of no return
and we may never know why
We never know what tomorrow brings
We’ll never learn how to fly
And even after the sorrow
Long after all the pain…

I have a feeling that we’ll still be here
That brighter days are getting nearer
We did our best, but we’re still not ready to die

I’m keeping tabs on the situation
This hasn’t been the ideal staycation
I’m disconnected but that won’t kill me
The toughest part is I feel so lonely

We made a mess of things, but we’ll never know why
You keep it coming, but we’re still not ready to die

We’re not ready to die
We’re not ready to die
We’re still not ready to die
I’m not ready to die
