lyrics

Got this little nasty feeling up in my throat
You can cash me inside breathing I need to choke
I guarantee this barely the god damn flu
Stop calling it that your embarrassing you god damn fool
This is not cool it actually very much sucks
I feel like trash that’s been hit by a garbage truck
It’s SARS as fuck it’s an intelligent weapon
I feel fine sometimes and then in bed the next second
I don’t know what do anymore because I’m never getting better
Wearing sweaters in July I get chills and then I fry getting wetter
Now I’m sweating getting tightness in my chest
It feels like an elephant pressed inside a vest
Tingles in my fingers I keep smelling Pringle’s salt and vinegar
Keep smelling chemicals burning nostrils my tonsils taste like ginger or
Chlorine am I drowning in a wormhole
Brain fog is insane god I just want to feel normal

Who let all the bad guys in my house?
Invaders inside
They need to get up and get out
Invaders inside
Why do I keep feeling so sick?
Invaders inside
When are they ever just going to quit?
Invaders inside
Why am I sick for 3 months straight?
Invaders inside
Why can’t I taste the food on my plate?
Invaders inside
It feels like an alien download inside me
Invaders inside
Why did I have to get COVID-19?
Invaders inside

I think I’m getting better, wait I’m feeling sick again
I think I’m getting better, hello covid my old friend
Recovery imposter ugly monster back inside me
Feel him surging burning through my veins he might be
Clogging up my blood I’m coughing up my lungs again
Stopping up my pipes with phlegm are we having fun yet?
Let me get a temp check in bed sick can’t even lay straight
Why have I been sick for fifty seven days straight?
Hey wait, doctors say it’s anxiety
Ok doc what are you prescribing me?
Let me guess a little bit of Xanax and klonopin
The same song again no panic and I’m gone again
But then I wake up with that same tightness in my chest
A lightness in my head always thinking that I might be dead
Wake up every night drenched in sweat burning in my throat
This the new normal and I’m learning to find hope

Who let all the bad guys in my house?
Invaders inside
They need to get up and get out
Invaders inside
Why do I keep feeling so sick?
Invaders inside
When are they ever just going to quit?
Invaders inside
Why am I sick for 3 months straight?
Invaders inside
Why can’t I taste the food on my plate?
Invaders inside
It feels like an alien download inside me
Invaders inside
Why did I have to get COVID-19?
Invaders inside

about

Sweeney Toad Palm Beach, Florida

If you're looking for nerdcore, I can tell you I don't have nerdcore... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let nerdcore go now, that will be the end of it - I will not look for you, I will not pursue you... but if you don't, I will find you... and I will nerdcore you. ... more
