about

This song, "April 2020", is from future FLOATINGHOME album, possibly called "The Other Seat Was Taken". It was written during the corona pandemic in, eh, april 2020, and recorded along the train lines in Berlin as the restrictions were lifting.

lyrics

there's not even a cardboard cut-out
of a future to aim for
no las vegas rising from the dust
we look no more to the preacher
to guide us to the milestones
we can see the haze of bullshit that it was

we're the first generation
to believe in truth and science
brought up fighting fantasy and lies
so let us take careful steps now
and leave for the next
a foundation of tolerance and equality


this spring we have a break
to stop and re-evaluate
all that's important in our lives
and as the virus rages outside
and everyone stays in to ear-
mark all the bits that help us survive
hoping from the dust will rise

a new civilization with new measurements of value
and low pay for ruling classes
you laugh it off as fantasy
but all i'm trying to say is
without imagination we cannot dream of change
