"Contagion" as written by Burton C. Bell, Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers....
A man held hostage
By this contagion
Alone abandoned
In search of legion
Under pressure
Under black skies
We must find the cure
Before we die

I can see the bullets rip
Inside the crossfire
My suicide run through
The razor wire

All must endure
We will not live forever
All must endure
We will not live forever

Terror awaits me
At every turn
Honor is stronger
We fight all at once
Hate spreads like wildfire
In foreign lands
Incurable pain is this
Gun in my hand

All must endure
We will not live forever
All must endure
We will not live forever

Who wants to live
Who wants to live
Forever

All must endure
We will not live forever
All must endure
We will not live forever
All must endure for the mercy of one
All must endure for the mercy of one

Mercy of one
Mercy of one
Mercy of one

    General CommentI think this song is about fighting a terminal illness and trying to live through it, although you know you can't. Great song though!

    General CommentI think it's more of a metaphor. It sounds more like the writer is talking about the need for humanity to fight and wage war, and how that need/desire for violence is like a contagion, or a terminal illness.

    "We must find the cure before we die"
    ie: our violent nature will eventually cause us all to kill each other.

    General CommentMy favorite FF song, I think it is about struggling in war, much like Orichalcon wrote.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Star Wars. It describes Anakin Skywalker going through his transition from a gifted Jedi to the second in command to the dark side.
