Every Day's the Same

about

A lockdown lament, written from the perspective of someone unable to work and unable to see friends and family, and the monotony that stems from that. I'd like to add a huge thanks to all those who have had to or chosen to work throughout and so made things a whole lot better than they could have been for the rest of us.

lyrics

We'd never had it so good
Never knew how lucky; never understood
That dystopia could happen so fast
The promise of tomorrow was never there, it could never last
And now every day's the same

And in our homes we hunker
Safe in our prison cells, in our snug domestic bunkers
And our friends are pixels, clawing at the screens
All trapped inside technology we mourn what might have been
And now every day's the same
Every day's the same
Every day's the same

How we were fooled but didn't care
Fooled into believing threats that were never there
But the enemy was hidden all the time
By paralysing fear and ignorance; it was such a crime
And now every day's the same

Nothing changes, it's another day
History repeats itself, as we watch in dismay
And we fight with distance so we won't succumb
Two to the power of all of us; divided bx`x`ut as one
And now every day's the same
Every day's the same
Every day's the same

And it's not right, it isn't fair
While others toil we all despair. And it's all wrong
The risk's too great, this altered state
It isn't where we want to be, this alternate reality
And who's to blame if every day's the same

And when all this is done
When all this is over will it always be the same
Oh when we've grieved for the lost and learned to hug once more
Will we let it go back to the way it was, the way it was before
And will every day be the same
Will we let every day be the same
Every day's the same
Nothing changes, every day's the same
Every day's the same. Every day's the same
