Quarantine Diet Got no milk, eggs, bread Nevermind the Cottonelle All these workers are my angels And they're stocking up the shelves Is it safe to eat this? And is it safe to be here? Deli counter's open and He's coughing in his sleeve here Selection's poor, man All they got is store brand No one making space Gotta rearrange the floorplan I push the cart And I wonder how my mom is I can't make her pasta Nah, all I got is hummus I'm on a quarantine diet I don't wanna die yet Keep a safe distance Cuz I don't wanna try it (Afraid of) everyone I see Just keep six feet away from me I'm on a quarantine diet I don't wanna die yet Keep a safe distance Cuz I don't wanna try it (Afraid of) everyone I see Just keep six feet away from me Home as the shelter Won't last forever I take everything I got and I put it in the frying pan I know it isn’t much but hey at least I’m trying, man Did the cooking by the book to try to make my cake amazing But when I took a bite it gave me internal disdaining When it comes to culinary skills I know nothing specific Is it all a feeling or is it scientific I could make you something but you wouldn’t wanna try it If you’ve got a craving I would just much rather buy it When Keiko’s in the kitchen though the fires are a blazing Cause Alice Knows Karate and she also knows baking I’d rather get delivery than eat something tasteless So my pizza guy and I are on a first-name basis I’m not working out I’m just getting bigger Spending my whole day thinking bout what I want for dinner I’m doing my best and by any indication Professor Robot ain’t dying of starvation I'm on a quarantine diet I don't wanna die yet Keep a safe distance Cuz I don't wanna try it (Afraid of) everyone I see Just keep six feet away from me I'm on a quarantine diet I don't wanna die yet Keep a safe distance Cuz I don't wanna try it (Afraid of) everyone I see Just keep six feet away from me Home as the shelter Won't last forever

Bad time brigade back in the house today forlorn demeanor,massively bad headache And as far as I know it’s been two months Since i was out of the house, or even seen the sun And now we gonna go (stir-crazy) I don’t give a fuck, Let the robots replace me Laying off the sauce, so every day feels 100 years long Writing 100 drafts of the same damn song On and on Outside’s worse Heat goes up. Coldfront comes in, equilibrium fucked. (Shit sucks.) Suppose that’s a mild way to say The walls close in a little more each day So here’s how we get by, gonna do the lockdown It’s a little dance to turn yourself around First you stand up. Take two steps back for now . Throw the sheets back. And (lay back down.) On and on. Lock down. (Lay on the ground). Softly sob. (now Let me hear the sound) Lock down. (Lay on the ground.) Softly sob. (Now Let me hear the sound.) Let me hear that sound Let me hear that sound Let me hear that sound Now go lay back down.

You’ve been on my mind and I miss you When I close my eyes I miss our late night walks Our intimate talks watching the city go by Tell me this aint love if you Are the only thing I’m thinking of Out my windows the moon This will be over so soon til then ill dream of you Chorus: So close yet so far when were six feet apart Pick you pick you up And show you how i m missing you Now I call you up call you up Watch the sunset from our living rooms Verse 2: The city feels so down and boring When you’re not around The only thing... I Think about when we'll finally meetup downtown. Im so sorry To cause worry I've called a thousand times To hear your voice on the line and tell you how I'm feeling blue

[Verse 1] I’m in a ghost town central to my residential Evident while I try to weather my temperamental Existential, my brand credit has transcended Seems to be eternal, a pandemic that can’t ended Cased personal space; the face, always masking it Markets crashing faster quick an overdose of avarice On the news, the planet is off its axis since People fighting over the paper they wipe their asses with Charge into battle with accelerated catalyst To chase a set of challenges, liquor out of my cabinet Blacking out the tragic I’ve developed from this habit skip Bottles disappear like the rabbits in a magic trick It’s all smoke and mirrors lined up reflecting well Solo house party with my infinite selves Been a minute and a half since seeing any friends It’s still gon’ be a few, gonna cut my hair again [Verse 2] Learning to hermit in the sense that an old crab is Falling backwards to redeveloping old habits Want to grab it, but stable is so evasive Spend years making progress, in an instant I erase it Want to give it up, but I can’t, you know the deal Try to sound convincing that I’m so for real (I’m so for real) Feeling further broken til I’m searching for a motive still Hoping for unnoticed ill regressions of my social skills Keep reverting my hard work and silently Watching my entire speed creeping toward anxiety Spiking in my time of need, and ever falling fast Reeling for an even keel, hit a wall and crash Let’s go back, we’ll fire up a blue portal Plus I’d just adjusted, I can’t handle a “new normal” At this party, but each time it’s half-hearted Sentenced to the deep end, tracking where I crash-started

about

Quarantined Beats (and Inside Voices) is a time capsule. The entire album was written and recorded in May 2020, one of the weirdest and most historic months many of us will ever experience. All the beats were produced by Doctor Popular, with additional vocals by many of his friends from around the world.

I started sending beats out on May 1st. On the evening of May 24th we had all (but one) of the songs finished and getting mixed. On May 25th 2020, George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. It wasn't my goal to avoid the topics of police brutality or the protests that followed. It feels like everything changed since George Floyd's murder and at first I felt weird releasing a collection of songs about how hard it was to find toilet paper, but I think this album still serves as a time capsule of a very specific time in our lives.

This album is free. If you enjoy it, PLEASE share it with friends and on social networks. I want to say thanks to all of the amazing artists who wrote and recorded songs for this project. Everybody brought their A game. Thanks so much for working with me. I owe each and everyone of you so much.

On a final note, I believe that Black Lives Matter. Regardless of your age, race, and gender, I hope that you do to. Black Americans are more than twice as likely to die in any interaction with police than someone like myself is. This system needs to dramatic change. If you think these 20 songs have brought you joy, please donate $20 to www.aclu.org/action/

Thanks for listening, now tell your friends!
