about

Call The Waves was written the night of March 12, after the news that President Trump met with a potentially Covid Positive President Bolsonaro. The idea that these two world leaders, who both downplayed the virus to the detriment of their people could potentially become victims of it smacked of a kind of poetic justice. But what the song is really trying to channel is the sadness of the impending loss of life and the utter powerlessness we feel as citizens of a collapsing democracy.

lyrics

Apathy
Has an appetite
A taste for blood
for the oversight

The kids have grown
Filling out their forms
Rectify
While the white ones scorn

This is us
a line of fools
Waiting for
Everyone one to eat

A coughing spell
And a lying man
Saying we're alright
When he's feeling ill

If this all ends
with an empty room
and a rusted throne
then we hope we won

but the loss is loss
and the time is gone
and this bittersweet
taste of death will fade

Call the waves.
Call the waves, on them
