The Virus (feat. Steve Kim)
A unit within the body that seeks to injure the body for its own gain is by definition a Virus Hijacking the virtues of our genetic code, a virus, deconstructing and dividing the body A virus, bringing this nation down to its knees. A virus, that has infected the social body A virus, that changed the world of our every day life Gaining strength while we get weaker Don't these days just seem to pass progressively bleaker? This virus that heats up the world 'til it is ready to boil This virus making it harder to breathe This virus, indeed, has hit us like a knee on the neck It has tricked the body's defenses--tricking it into attacking its own body public Police forces militarized by viro-genetic policy Over policing, criminalizing, silencing, marginalizing, incentivizing death or the life of a Slave Structuralizing our mythologies like infected RNA Whittling down our perception, so it can get its way Gaining strength while we get weaker Don't these days just seem to pass progressively bleaker? Resistance is all an infected body can do A vaccine has yet to be invented There seems to be no hospital large enough to heal an entire nation Resistance is generated by me and you From each posted video and those necessary and uncomfortable conversations Each of us cells peacefully raising our voices Taking to the streets, and refusing to buy into false drama and lies Gathering strength as we gather as one Unceasing our labor until our days seem as bright as the sun Resistance is casting a vote for officials that are willing say, "enough is enough." Officials taking action toward the arduous task of changing a culture corrupted in our Past Dismantling the processes and structures of viral reproduction Willing to nurse the critical communities in need of intensive care Intubating and ventilating those unable to breathe Prioritizing resources toward healing and health of the social body Unceasing their labor until all of our days no longer pass progressively bleaker Resistance begins with just me and you using our power to choose a culture more just And inclusive
