Contagious

Album: A Static Lullaby (2006)
  • So child, we have to see this through
    The choking has you foaming at the mouth
    Our bodies convulsing on the floor
    Like a fish out of water
    The price of wanting more

    Epilepsy seems
    seems safe enough for me
    It's alright girl, it's alright

    Contagious, contagious as this seems
    And girl, you're catching on to me
    Shut down, shut down, break away
    And this is slightly what it's meant to be
    The perfect line, the perfect time
    When our bodies align

    A pale smile struggles behind tears
    While passion meets you striking at your face
    Instantly we bottle our feelings
    So tell me why are you crying
    The price for wanting more

    But then again it seems
    You're safe enough for me
    It's alright girl, it's alright

    Contagious, contagious as this seems
    And girl, you're catching on to me
    Shut down, shut down, break away
    And this is slightly what it's meant to be
    The perfect line, the perfect time
    When our bodies align

    What defines this man
    What defines this man finding space in lovers' hands.

    [Repeat: x5]
    Is this what it seems to be?
    Who said this lasts forever?

    Who said this lasts forever
    Who said this lasts forever

    Contagious, contagious as this seems
    And girl, you're catching on to me
    Shut down, shut down, break away
    And this is slightly what it's meant to be
    The perfect line, the perfect time
    When our bodies align

    Contagious, contagious
    Contagious, contagious
    Contagious (when our bodies align)
