A little song about the current and wider paranoia within today's society fueled by everything from the pandemic to wild conspiracies.


There's bugs going round, in every city, every town,
There's bugs in the air, some folks panic, some don't care,
There's bugs in the pubs, in your beer and on your grub,
And the government tell us to Stay Alert

There's bugs in the media, social networks, Wikipedia,
There's bugs that are powered, by the transmission towers,
There's bugs in the phones, the smart speakers in our homes,
And they are listening to your every word,

There's bugs on the hands, of everybody in the land,
There's bugs in your eyes, that’ll turn you into spies,
There's bugs in your mouth, so to stop them getting out,
The government tell us to stay inside,

There's bugs in our beds, in our clothing, in our heads,
There's bugs on our screens, showing unprecedented scenes,
There's bugs in our brains, that are sending us insane,
Driving some unto some violent deeds

Bugs in the Supermarket, and the multi-story parking,
Bugs in the shopping malls, and they're spreading wall to wall,

These bugs are here to stay, don't think they'll ever go away,
But the government say it's under control
