"Disease" as written by and Ola Salo....
And the lions ate the christians and the
Christians burned the witches
- And even I am out of explanations,
But maybe that doesn't matter anymore
Cause maybe you can read my thoughts
And going to school, going to work,
Doing the dishes, knife and fork
All of that, all in all, hand in hand,
Spring and fall
I believe I could get through it
I could even get into it
But only you can make me do it

And if there is disease in you
I want to have that disease too
'Cause I want everything
That is inside you
If there is disease in you
I want to have that disease too
'Cause if you'd die
Then I should die beside you

I beganto read your profile:
You are independent, mobile...
- Well I know just as little
'Bout perfection,
But we're running in the same direction,
So maybe that doesn't matter anyhow

Belly aches, hair falls off,
Skin gets covered with liver spots,
Blood in the mouth
And a racking cough,
Head gets filled
With feverish thoughts

I believe I could get through it
I could even get into it
But only you can make me do it

And if there is disease in you
I want to have that disease too
'Cause I want everything
That is inside you
If there is disease in you
I want to have that disease too
And if you'd die
Then I should die beside you

If there is disease in you...
- Fall asleep and I will wake beside you
And if there is disease in you
I want to have that disease too
'Cause I want everything
That is inside you
Inside you,
Inside you...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this is about a religious man falling for somebody who his religion says is 'diseased' - maybe a gay man (with the obvious AIDS reference) or just not accepted.

    These are the correct lyrics, BTW:

    And the lions ate the christians and the
    Christians burned the witches
    And even I am out of explanations
    But maybe that doesn't matter anymore
    'Cause maybe you can read my thoughts

    I'm going to school, going to work
    Doing the dishes, knife and fork
    All of that, all in all, hand in hand
    Spring and fall -
    I believe I could get through it
    I could even get into it
    But only you could make me do it

    And if there is disease in you
    I want to have that disease too
    ’Cause I want everything that is inside you
    And if there is disease in you
    I want to have that disease too
    ’Cause if you’d die
    Then I should die beside you

    I began to read your profile
    You are independent, mobile
    Well I know just as little 'bout perfection
    But we’re running in the same direction
    So maybe that doesn’t matter anyhow

    Belly aches, hair falls off
    Skin gets covered with liver spots
    Blood in the mouth and a racking cough
    Heads get filled with feverish thoughts
    I believe I could get through it
    I could even get into it
    But only you could make me do it

    And if there is disease in you
    I want to have that disease too
    ’Cause I want everything that is inside you
    And if there is disease in you
    I want to have that disease too
    ’Cause if you’d die
    Then I should die beside you

    And if there is disease in you
    Fall asleep and I will wake beside you
    And if there is disease in you
    I want to have that disease too
    ’Cause I want everything that is inside you
    Inside you
    Inside you

    General CommentI see, not only the obvious AIDS reference, but also a declaration of dedication to his partner despite the hardships that will be present, which is summed up by "I believe I could get through it / I could even get into it / But only you could make me do it" and '’Cause if you’d die / Then I should die beside you."

    I've had this one song on repeat for the last hour- I cant get the first two stanzas out of my head >.

    General CommentOla did an interview last month, and talked about "Disease"

    thearkworld.com/…
    "“Disease” is definitely not about AIDS.
    Actually it is not about any disease at all,
    in any other way than as a metaphor. In
    fact it is about love, about togetherness
    between two people, and total dedication."

    General CommentI can't believe it's not about AIDS...the symptoms described seem so specific:

    Belly aches, hair falls off
    Skin gets covered with liver spots
    Blood in the mouth and a racking cough
    Head gets filled
    With feverish thoughts

    What does that sound like to you? Still, Ola wouldn't like about these things...
