Don’t believe the lies told by the mainstream They're part of the deep state and the world regime Science plays along with their corrupted game In every country on this flat plane They say that this virus just occurs As a natural phenomenon on Earth They will kill me, but hear me when I say: I’m pretty sure it was the CIA Chorus: Cosmic Infestation Aliens Chinese International Attack Central Intelligence Agency They all want to keep us All In Check It could be Communists Initiating Anarchy To bring capitalism to its knees Or a Christian Islamic Apocalypse If a virus prophecy is in their scripts I’m a Conspiracist In Armageddon-mode My only saviours are the guns I own 'Cause in the end no one is safe and sound As long as Covid-19 Is Around Chorus: Cosmic Infestation Aliens Chinese International Attack Central Intelligence Agency They all want to keep us All In Check Communication Infrastructure Allergy Control Increasing Authorities Conspiracist In Armageddon-mode As long as Covid-19 Is Around 'When in February 2020 some claimed the CIA was responsible for creating the coronavirus, I was quick to notice that the abbreviation 'CIA' not only can point to the actual US intelligence agency but also to virus spreading extraterrestrials and Chinese global biowarfare. In early April I used the idea for this mid tempo coronavirus conspiracy song. Because it’s about the CIA there was no question about the main riff chords and their order. Now, in music the 'I' does not exist, unless one regards the 'B' as 'I' (counting two notes up from 'G'). With the chord order 'C'-'B'-'A' however I got the same riff as the one in I Wanna Be Your Dog from the self titled 1969 debut album by The Stooges (although they play 'G'-'Fis'-'E'). So I just used the 'G' -- being the closest to the alphabetical 'I' as you can get in the widely agreed upon chromatic or twelve-tone musical scale.'

Last year in a lab Some scientists with evil intent Conspired to bring Mankind to an end They took the SARS. virus And some others too And on December 1st They gave the Chinese the flu I’m positive the outbreak Happened by accident So the virus ain’t as deadly As originally planned And whatever officials claim Is the source of the disease We don’t get fooled again This virus is not Chinese Chorus: Oh corona, you don’t sound Chinese to me You may think that what I say ain’t true But I’m using different facts than you And I’m certain that corona’s not Chinese This all happened before Late 1917 At the end of the Great War A virus was set free It took the world by storm The death toll was insane And when they found the source They named it after Spain And what coincidence The current one you see Bears a name that came From the Mediterranean Sea ‘Corona’ is Spanish for what is called ‘crown’ in English Just do a Google search This word is not Chinese Chorus 'Early April 2020 I got inspired to write some coronavirus related songs. Instead of the murderous take of the usual Ramirez lyrics, I decided it would be more fruitful to base them around some existing and self fabricated conspiracy theories. For this first written one I tried to get into the mindset of conspiracists floating around hypotheses solely based on tunnel vision internet research and forgetting to dig a little deeper. The starting point was that 'corona' is a Spanish and not Chinese word, leading to the logical conclusion that just like the Spanish flu of January 1918-December 1920 the coronavirus also is of Spanish origin. It’s a slow song with a traditional chord progression that apparently was influenced by songs by Dutch singers like Jacques Herb and Piet Veerman (The Cats). I also used a line from the 1971 song Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who, which of course is a reference to the WHO.'

A virus has arrived A few remain alive When it’s all over then There’s many people dead Sent by a vengeful God They angered Him a lot It settled on this world To go viral on Earth Chorus: God is furious and of course We ourselves are not the cause We are the righteous God thinks exactly like I do And to get His message through Gave us a virus Now do not ask me why He mostly kills old guys God’s punishment is just His will at any cost Now all is going down Defeated by the Crown He works in mysterious ways Is all that we can say Chorus 'Whenever and wherever on Earth bad stuff happens, there are some religious folks that will interpret this as a Divine Punishment. Strangely enough, most of the time they point to other people as the cause of this punishment and seem pretty sure that they themselves have done nothing wrong to get Divinely blamed for. But the fact that a supernatural Divine Being that wants to be acknowledged by the Pinnacle of His Creation uses natural occurring phenomena seems a little odd. Anyway, in the religious point of view these lyrics take the conclusion is that there is no explanation to explain the unexplainable actions of an unexplainable Force. Inspiration for the music came from the X-Files theme song and the Journey song Wheel In The Sky, first released on their 1978 album Infinity.'
