"Hopeless Host" as written by Marc Edwin Allen, Nathan Barcalow, Derek Doherty, Alejandro M. Linares and Randy Strohmeyer....
I feel the pain
Corroded arteries exposed to cold skin
Feeding me
Diastolic curdled oxygen
I look suspicious when I look
In the mirror
Swallow placebo and the
Mountain gets steeper
Stomach won't digest demons
One wound for every reason why

Pills are contagious
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion
Bleed me through to midnight

Peeking red
Another episode of playing pretend
Medicine
Cut the feed for one moment
Release endorphins and then it's over

Hands of the shadows grope at dirty diseases
Somebody tell me why I should believe this
One more unknown condition
One wound for every reason why

Pills are contagious
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion
Bleed me through to midnight
Pills are contagious (pills are contagious)
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion (monsters religion)
One more, one more

Try as I may
Inside this creature's still alive
Try as I may
Inside this creature's still alive

Focus on the fire burning
Virus in me
Hopeless host hooked to a wire
Keeping me
Focused on the fire burning
Virus that is me... (a hopeless host)

Sickness, Sickness
Is crumbling me, born into
Disease stomach
Won't digest demons mother please
I beg. Just finish the stitch
Sew me up to live

    General CommentIt's about having all kinds of different pills for every new sickness that someone might have.
    And then eventually become dependent and addicted to those pills.

    General Comment I think the song is about using Heroin.....

    "I feel the pain Corroded arteries exposed to cold skin"
    Addicts have to find new veins because the others corrode and collapse
    Peeking red Another episode of playing pretend Medicine, Cut the feed for one moment Release endorphins and then it's over"
    Now personally I think that this is about injecting


    Focus on the fire burning
    Virus in me
    Hopeless host hooked to a wire
    Keeping me
    Focused on the fire burning
    Virus that is me... (a hopeless host)


    Many Addicts refer to the initial feeling of heroin is your body feels like it catches on fire as it spreads through the veins

    love the other opinions as well
