Story behind the song
When I wrote "In 2020" (Part 1), back in February, it was basically a personal story about my medical issues and my continued anger and frustration of Trump. When it was written and posted online, none of the major issues that were facing this year had even begun. No pandemic, no riots, no protesting, no confederate flag protests, no Wall Street crashes, no face masks, no self-quarantining and no Trump making all of this much worse. So I had to write a second part of this song, to include everything that happened since I wrote the first part. The music is similar (with a faster tempo and some changes), but different enough to make it an entirely new song.
Lyrics
So here it is the second part of 2020 The year of being torn apart, while chaos reigns a plenty Race riots, Corona Virus Crazy climates. You cant deny it Wall Street crashes. Fear of Fascists Government asses and police tear gasses In 2020, we never saw it coming In 2020, time to stop running The whole worlds laughing in our face But how many of you feel the disgrace? Our leaders are fools, that bring us to our knees While the racists rule, an incurable disease Corrupt elections, illegal detentions Wheres the direction, in this heartless recession And a ruthless Trump, whos gotta be dumped Sinking in the swamp. That about sums it up In 2020, we never saw it coming In 2020, its all so mind numbing Trumps as useful as a prairie chicken Except for when he lets his friends out of prison Half the country knows the score The other half perverts the law Some of us know just what we stand for While others are fixin for a civil war Oh 2020, wont you please treat me gently Oh 2020, youre leaving me feeling so damn empty In 2020, we got hit from all sides In 2020, get us off this crazy ride If you dont believe in the truth that we say Whos the real enemy of the state? In 2020, were losing our freedom In 2020, were feeling down and beaten While Trump makes a string of blunders How it ends, we all got to wonder
