lyrics

REVERSE TRANSCRIPTION

As science gains ground on the pandemic
Striving towards a cure seems imminent
Deconstructing the makeup to find weaknesses
Discoveries that they've made render them speechless
Before their very eyes the pattern changes
Retracing all of its steps back to the basic
As breakthrough appeared to be close enough to taste it
The genomes upon the screen start moving in reverse

Reverse transcription now
Leaves research stumbling down
This game of cat and mouse
While scores of victims mount

It takes the progress away
With pirouetting steps
Resultant scramble and panic leads to a loss of focus
It shows cunningness by taking on a new construction
Such resistance to treatment makes research nullified

A virus racking up the victims it seems
So daunting to control when makeup shifts
No positive outcome presently can be forseen
Every advancement has been met with trickery

Reverse transcription now
Leaves research stumbling down
This game of cat and mouse
While scores of victims mount

Cells rot away, No respite achieved
Host cells are penetrated
No sign of emancipation
