Phlebia

Isolation ain't no fun
Can't stand avoiding everyone
Cabin fever's got me down
So I'm out staring at the ground

I love looking for morels
In this time of disease
I'm in a grove of tulip poplar trees
Out here with the song birds and the breeze

Now I ain't findin' shit
But I know they're hidin' under the privet
Even the fungi are in self-quarantine
Today's mushroom haul is lookin', lookin' kind of lean

I love looking for morels
In this time of disease
I'm in a grove of tulip poplar trees
Out here with the song birds and the breeze

The certainty of death has no effect on my disease
The music that we make is just but dust upon the leaves
I never let it affect my decisions
I accept there may be some incisions
So this disease keeps on burning

The world is cruel, misery is flat and joy is numb
With the lights out we're less dangerous
Still look out here we come

Let me take it back please
I wanna spread it like a disease
Let me take it back please
I wanna spread it like a disease
Florentino says "There is no greater glory than to die for love"
Let me take it back please
I wanna spread it like a disease

Love In The Time Of - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Love in the time of...

I'd like to see you so closely but I can't
Reaching out through distances so vast
Your voice electric in my ears
Wish I had you close to me right here

Your kiss would be the end of me
You steal my heart, I cannot breathe
Your fire is my fever high
Your warm embrace from which I die

Love in the time of...

I'd love to see you so closely in my room
Instead of screens away, come true
Your touch electric on my skin
Wish I had the fortitude within

Your hands upon me would be doom
Two weeks away, another moon
Your loving eyes look on in fear
Two weeks away, your drying tears

Love in the time of world-stopping terror
Two hearts beating faster and faster
Love in the time of catastrophic failure
Two lungs fighting inside a chest
Love in the time of choking horror
Two loves passing in the night
Love in the time like we've never seen before
Will I ever feel you again?
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

This song is about going on instagram and seeing gay guys posing topless with facemasks on, or with soap dripping down their bodies, to both raise awareness of coronavirus and also promote their onlyfans accounts at the same time. I'm not judging, there's a whole load of horny people on lockdown so you may as well capitalise. Godspeed, instagays!

Love In The Time Of - The Lowest Bitter.

all the instagays are telling me
to wash my hands
sexy, soaping up your chest
a public service thirst trap
and I know we're all horny,
cancelled hook-up plans
solidarity!
a discount code for onlyfans

love in the time of lockdown
lust in the time of lockdown
love in the time of lockdown
lust in lockdown

feeling blue,
send me nudes
boy, I'm stuck at home
keep your distance,
send me dick pics
boy, I'm all alone

love in the time of lockdown
lust in the time of lockdown
love in the time of lockdown
lust in lockdown

all the instagays are telling me

Love in the time of

You were talking on the phone
With someone far away
Everyone is calling someone
To see if they’re OK
Social distance, isolation
Buzzwords of the year
Strange how this distancing
Makes us feel so near

It’s pretty quiet here at home
Just you and me
We stay inside, read our books
Maybe watch TV
Not much to do but talk
And so we do
After all these years
I’m catching up with you

It's good to see you, it’s been so long
How did we let things go?
We’ve been together, yet I missed you
How did I not know?
I was so far away
You were right here
Strange how this isolation
Makes us feel so near

Love In The Time Of - WreckdoM

Love in the time of... this

It's not too late to change your ways
The governor himself gonna get down and pray
A chance encounter at the grocery store
Got you up in arms, you don't know which way to go

Walking down the street in the afternoon
Ain't a soul around and the place is a tomb
Totally set free by possibility
Coughing in your kerchief with a handful of bleach

Love in the time of... this

It's not too late to count the days
Better change out of your peejays and pull up your pants
We got the big boys on the telephone
Call the CDC because she's startin' to foam

A shotgun full of hot sauce and a can of soup
Riding this thing out so damn in love with you
You are my sun and moon and tainted wind
Let me take your temperature, I think you're getting hotter

Love in the time of - this
Love in the time - we'll get out of here
Love in the time of - this
Love in the time - we will be free again
Love in the time of - this
Love in the time - we'll get out of here
Love in the time of - this
Love in the time - we will be free again
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Love In The Time Of - Paco del Stinko

You say you wanna dance
You take another chance but
Who do you think you are because
You ain't no superstar

So get with the picture
Don't let it hit you

Love in the time of love (love)
Love in the time of love (love)
Live in the time of love (love)
Love in the time of love (love)


Keep a body length away
Please if you want to stay

I'm six foot one
And you are five foot four
And we can still have fun
When we're trapped indoors

Come kiss me through my mask
Oh baby hon it might be our last
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Love In The time Of
by Jerkatorium

Well it started back in ’63
Things got tough for single guys like me
Girls got really picky about picking their man
Like they’d only settle for one from that one band
Now I just don’t know what I’m gonna do
‘Cause I’m not as cute as Ringo (and neither are you)
And I love my girlfriend but she wants more
She only wants a quarter of that fabulous four

Love in the time of Beatlemania
Love in the time of Beatlemania
At first they were a novelty band
The worst band in the world
First they ruined rock and roll
And now they’ve stole my girl

So I started to let my hair grow long
I bought a guitar and learned some songs
But my girlfriend said to me I may as well move on
‘cause she only had eyes for John.
And then it got really embarrassin’
When she told me of her love for George Harrison
And I just about wanted to end it all
When she said she’d fix a hole for Paul

Love in the time of Beatlemania
Love in the time of Beatlemania
At first they were a novelty band
The worst band in the world
First they ruined rock and roll
And now they’ve stole my girl

She’s a Liverpool girl on a Hard Day’s Night
Listnin’ to “A Day In The Life”
I say “Please please me”
and she says “Let it be”
yeah it’s driving me crazy
Beatlemaniac, maniac
Beatlemaniac, maniac
Beatlemaniac, she’s a
BEATLEMANIAC!

Love in the time of Beatlemania
Love in the time of Beatlemania
At first they were a novelty band
The worst band in the world
First they ruined rock and roll
And now they’ve stole my girl

I found the love I’ve been searching for

In the light of the early morn
I watch it slipping away

Love in the time
Of whiskey and wine
When you were mine
And we had a love divine

I lost the love I committed to
They left me standing alone
Just a shadow of what we had
A dark and desolate home

Chorus
Love in the time
Of whiskey and wine
When you were mine
And we had a love divine

All of the days
All of the ways
We thought our love
Would last forever

All through the haze
Drunk in your gaze
We thought our love
Would last forever

Verse3
I miss the love that abandoned me
Left me shattered and broke
Just a ship on the open sea
After the fire there’s only smoke

Chorus
Love in the time
Of whiskey and wine
When you were mine
And we had a love divine

Lost in the fire
So full of desire
My valentine
And we had a love divine

Love in the Time of
by Lichen Throat
inspired by "This Moment of the Storm," by Roger Zelazny


I hear static on the radio,
So I send an eye over the hills.
A look at the sky, and then I know,
Rain’s going to fall, and winds will blow.
Cups of coffee with the mayor,
Let her know what’s coming soon.
Make it fast; I’ll not delay her:
A quick kiss and “Good afternoon.”
This thing won’t be just a shower;
Fill the sandbags, cut the power.
Stock up on the protein powder;
Sound the warning siren louder.
Eleanor, keep yourself dry
As the rain falls from the sky.
Love in the time of the storm,
Hold me, and I’ll keep you warm.

Evening, as the clouds grow dark
And raindrops fall in endless sheets.
From sky to ground, electric arcs
Light the wet and empty streets.
Rivers swell and overflow;
Banklines melt to stagnant ponds.
In makeshift boats, the people row
Like wayward, floating vagabonds.
Burning sawblades cross the skyline.
Your phone’s dead—here, you can try mine.
Hospitals are underwater,
Families missing sons and daughters.
Eleanor, no time to cry
As the rain falls from the sky.
Love in the time of the storm,
Hold me, and I’ll keep you warm.

Everything just floats away,
Down the rivers, out to sea.
Can we last another day,
As soaked and drowning refugees?
Beyond control, but we cling,
Holding on with all our might,
Fist around a broken string,
Trying to control the kite.
Come with me; we’ll take a flyer,
Past the clouds, keep rising higher.
Look upon the shining stars,
Forget a moment, where we are.
Eleanor, don’t ask me why
There are tears in both my eyes;
Love in the time of the storm,
Hold me, love me, keep me warm.

Love In The Time Of
Pigfarmer Jr

I light a candle as I
I am staring at the sky
At the sky

A shadow passes over
As the moon begins to hide
Starts to hide

I feel the minutes passing
And the shadow passes by
Passes by

I see a lonely figure
And she's framed against the sky
Against the sky

It's love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of

I feel the darkness fading
As the moonlight strikes her face
Lights up her face

I see her catch the wind and
And it takes her far away
Takes her away

It's love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of

Years go by and I can't believe
My own eyes or my memory
It sit at night and try to catch a glimpse
Was it fate or happenstance
That I barely caught a glance?
And who am I trying to convince?

It's love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love in the time of
Love
It's love
It's love
It's love
In the time of love

Love in the Time of the Riot

glennny-Bass, production
Erin Debakcsy- Violin


I met you at the races
I was blue and you were green
among the cheering faces
you were fairest ever seen
but soon we'd see no traces
of the emperor's demesne

it was love in the time of the riot

Nika Nika Nika!
and the insurrection's on
and every guard will seek a skull
to lay his vengeance on
until the arena reeks of blood
like none since Ctesiphon

but we had love in the time of the riot

we had love everlasting
in a chaotic blink
we had love far more vast
than the oceans salty drink
we had love till the axes
made us shudder and sink
we had love in a moment
not a moment to think

I saw you in the gravel
in the serpent column's shade
our banner still unraveling
when cut down by a blade
no purple shroud will hover
over murders madly made

but we had love in the time of the riot
we had love in the time of the riot
we had love in the time of the riot

Mandibles

What is Love?
Is it a fiction or a fact?
Is it a practice or an act?
Is it a fortune or a folly,
Or a type of melancholy?
What is Love in the time
Of
our uncharted paradigm?

What is heartbreak?
Is it this guilt and grief,
This regret beyond belief?
Is it the fear that grips the heart
When your world is torn apart?
What is heartbreak when compared
With a world that cries despair?

Love and heartbreak
How they move around each other
Are they lovers?
Are they friends?
When a dance begins
It also ends.
Some say that though
They’ve different names
They are in fact still
One the same.
A coin has both
A heads and tails,
A breath drawn in
Ends with exhale,
As ash is all
Remains of fire,
So love in heartbreak
Must expire

I should point out that this song is inspired by a very traumatic moment in the history of the Roman Empire, when Justinian put down a rebellious riot by just about killing everyone in the city. The riot broke out at a chariot race in the hippodrome of Constantinople, where the crowd ominously chanted “Nika” (win) as the opposing fans joined their voices and intentions against the emperor.

Love in the time of, By Gaping Maw

I like the sweetness slowly drifting from the sun,
I like to taste the rose aroma in my nose and on my tongue,
I like the way the melody is sung
and I don’t think that you’re like anyone, no.
I like the silliness of certain words,
I like to watch the soaring of the soaring birds
One day when they hit the switch
they’re going to bury us in yonder ditch

Everybody’s getting up in my face
making messes in my personal space
give me liberty or give me death
give me a break from your tainted breath
give me a chance to think, to live
give me a piece of what you’ve got to give

Love love love
In the time of
Everything that wants to keep us apart
Everything that wants to shatter my heart

I’ll let this kitten nestle in my lap asleep,
this puppy play and the bird’s simple tweets
the rising sun, come and warm me with its rays
This is such a disconcerting phase
Because we don’t know what we don’t know, and so we
circle round the dying town. watch the numbers fall down.
three. two, one — here we come

I remember your face back from another time
If you’re alive why don’t you give me a sign?
Cuz I’ve been thinking about the way it died
ever since I’ve been staying inside
And I’ve been working through a couple of ways
they all lead to the end of days

Love love love
In the time of
Everything that wants to keep us apart
Everything that wants to shatter my heart
