Darren Douglas Danahy This pandemic has been marked by so many events, yet has been as one big blur to me and many others.

What it needed, I didn't know until now - was A THEME SONG.

And now, it has one. I don't know anyone on the planet that cannot relate to this track right now.

Thank you for writing it!

about

The single captures the global angst over the COVID pandemic and the desperate need for vaccine distribution.

The Juno Award-winning Pope, who pushed the boundaries of sexuality and sexual politics both in Rough Trade’s songs and on stage, says: “I think the song encapsulates how we’re all feeling about being locked down, and you can dance to it!”

Church of Trees founder Bernard Frazer brims with excitement when describing his experience with the rock icon. “She was delightful! They say to never meet your heroes because they’ll disappoint, but Carole was extraordinary, and in such fine form.”

World's a Bitch
Lyrics by Bernard Frazer and Carole Pope


This effed up world's a bitch
This lockdown life s so closed in
I am so tired of being alone

I can't go out, I can't see shit
No romantic circumstances
So claustrophobic on my own

They keep saying
Just be patient
Mask on and raving
Can't take much more before I spit

Hear it in their heavy sighs
In others' troubled eyes
Only touch I feel is on my own

It is so constipating
My eyes keep dilating
No fun even masturbating in the safe zone

Wash those hands
Keep six feet back, oh oh!

They keep saying
Just be patient
Mask on and raving
Can't take much more before I...
They keep saying
Just be patient
Mask on and raving
Can't take much more before I...

Ah, ah, ah
Give me my wet dream vaccine!

They keep saying
Just be patient
Mask on and raving
Can't take much more before I
They keep saying
Just be patient
Mask on and raving
Can't take much more before I ... spit
