From the daily ups and downs
To dreams shuttered down
From the crowded train stations
To the life of no motion
From the busy taxi ranks and bus stations
Life stood still

It all began as a myth
Ohh how I wish it was a myth
It was a joke until it hit home
Now it’s an obligation to stay home
Life put on hold

From the hustlers on the streets
To the forever-empty streets
From the daily world’s interactions
To the new world driven by fear
Life stood still

The creature set to disrupt the human race
Stimulates fear in all races
Ohh what have we become!
Now it’s all curtains closed down
And the poor with all hope down
Life stood still
