"Contagious" as written by and Christopher Taylor/bassett Brown....
So child, we have to see this through
The choking has you foaming at the mouth
Our bodies convulsing on the floor
Like a fish out of water
The price of wanting more

Epilepsy seems
seems safe enough for me
It's alright girl, it's alright

Contagious, contagious as this seems
And girl, you're catching on to me
Shut down, shut down, break away
And this is slightly what it's meant to be
The perfect line, the perfect time
When our bodies align

A pale smile struggles behind tears
While passion meets you striking at your face
Instantly we bottle our feelings
So tell me why are you crying
The price for wanting more

But then again it seems
You're safe enough for me
It's alright girl, it's alright

Contagious, contagious as this seems
And girl, you're catching on to me
Shut down, shut down, break away
And this is slightly what it's meant to be
The perfect line, the perfect time
When our bodies align

What defines this man
What defines this man finding space in lovers' hands.

[Repeat: x5]
Is this what it seems to be?
Who said this lasts forever?

Who said this lasts forever
Who said this lasts forever

Contagious, contagious as this seems
And girl, you're catching on to me
Shut down, shut down, break away
And this is slightly what it's meant to be
The perfect line, the perfect time
When our bodies align

Contagious, contagious
Contagious, contagious
Contagious (when our bodies align)
Contagious

    General CommentAwesome song, one of the better ones on the self-titled, by far.

    Could be about a drug-related incident between two people, possibly a couple. ("Convulsing", "The price of wanting more"). Just an opinion, probably way off.

    CONTAGIOUS

    so child, we have to see this through
    the choking has you foaming at the mouth
    our bodies convulsing on the floor like a fish out of water
    the price of wanting more
    epilepsy seems safe enough for me… it's alright girl, it's alright

    contagious as this seems, girl you're catching onto me
    shut down and break away… this is slightly what it's meant to be
    the perfect line, the perfect time when our bodies align

    a pale smile struggles behind tears
    while passion meets you striking at your face instinctively
    we bottle our feelings
    so tell me why are you crying the price for wanting more
    but then again it seems you're safe enough for me
    it's alright girl, it's alright

    what defines this man finding space in lovers' hands
    is this what it seems to be: who said this lasts forever

    General CommentActually sounds like a relationship to me. Or at least that feeling you get when you start to like someone. "Who said this lasts forever." Their lyrics have definitely improved a lot since they started.
