Contagious

Album: Cold World (2016)
  • Sticks and stones from a strangers throw
    Have never much affected me
    But words from those
    Supposedly who matter most
    Are nothing but poisoning

    You cut me down
    Drag me out
    Down and out to your level
    I'll never find myself stooping down to this
    (It feels like it's)
    Taking a part of me
    From the inside
    (It takes the best parts of me)
    And I don't know why
    I'm here anyway
    But it feels like
    Falling to my face
    Adhering to every part of me

    My pessimistic attitude is contagious
    With friends like these who needs enemies?

    You cut me down
    Call me out
    Take your opportunity
    Just to scrutinize every single word that I say

    (It feels like it's)
    Taking apart of me
    From the inside
    (It takes the best parts of me)
    And I don't know why
    I'm here anyway
    But it feels like

    Falling
    To my face

    And I know all about this place
    I'd say it was a part of me
    Take this mind and make me clean

    Please

    Please push me cause I'm close to the edge!
    Finally I won't lose my head!

    (It feels like it's)
    Taking a part of me
    From the inside
    (You take the best parts of me)
    Now that I'm finding why
    I'm here anyway
    Makes me feel like
    Falling to my knees

    Adhering to every part of me! Writer/s: PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA, AUSTIN CARLILE, ALAN ASHBY, AARON PAULEY, DAVID BENDETH
