"Epidemic" as written by Aviv Geffen and Steven John Wilson....
Don't say everything's okay

Don't tell me that it's just a phase

It doesn't help me



All the stars are standing still

The anger and the sleeping pills

Are all that's left now



An epidemic in my heart

Takes hold and slowly poisons me

Her will won't let me breathe

It comes in waves and bleeds me dry

This love is slowly killing me

For me, there's no-one else



Jealousy just eats me up

Your knife has made the deepest cut

My heart is pumping



You say that there must be an end

But afterwards we'll still be friends

It seemed so easy



An epidemic in my heart

Takes hold and slowly poisons me

Her will won't let me breathe

It comes in waves and bleeds me dry

This love is slowly killing me

For me, there's no one else

    I'm pretty sure this song is just about unreciprocated love for someone. In some parts it seems to be addressing another friend who he sought help from
    "Don’t say everything’s okay
    Don’t tell me that it’s just a phase
    It doesn’t help me"
    and later on,
    "You say there must be an end
    But afterwards we’ll still be friends
    It seemed so easy"
    It's described as an "epidemic" because of the love-sickness associated with it, and the fact that even if he tries he'll seemingly never be able to get it out of his head, and that as long as they stay friends it's still going to be there.

    Pretty simple song lyrically, as are most Blackfield songs...
    And is it just me or does anyone else think that Aviv Geffen isn't a good songwriter? Wilson goes on about how he let Aviv write all the songs because he believes he is a good writer, but tbh I can't find anything on the guess album written by him that is actually that good. Lol i Wilson had to give him a bigger part just so he didn't complain =P I quite like Aviv's vocals though, but yeah, Steven all the way.
