Locked Down

from Circus of the Mind by Crabapples



The social impact of the pandemic is significant, and is the inspiration for this song.


I’ve heard that memories change
Each time you try to recall
Now when I think of your face
I’m not sure what I’m seeing
Are you disappearing
Or maybe you’re nowhere at all

Keep it together... keep it together....

Relations are very strange
Remaining so far away
I can barely hear what you’ve said
Forgive all my swearing
It’s just that I’m wearing
This mask that gets in my way

How are you tonight?
Are you feeling alright?
I can’t hear what you say
When you’re standing so far away

I wish I could spend the night
Out with some good friends of mine
Instead of emptying bottles of wine
Of course we’re all hoping
That something is open
And all of us are still alive
