"This City Is Contagious" as written by Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall, Ian Crawford, Cash Colligan, Alex Johnson and Matt Squire....
The word is out, this town can hardly breathe
When air is filled with dust and dying dreams
Attaching wings to all the sights
We're making sure these buildings fly
We worked too hard to leave without a fight

Go ahead and tell everyone you know
We stole the show

[Chorus]
Right now, this town is for the taking
We'll bring neon to its knees
Our time to shine beyond the pavement
We've got everything we need
So turn the music up, you're hearing more than sound
Right now, this town is for the taking
And it's all we'll ever need

The word is out, this town, it never sleeps
A feeding ground for those who still believe
Kissing curbs to bide our time
On this last night to feel alive
We will never leave this place behind

Go ahead and tell everyone you know
We stole the show

[Chorus]

[x2]
Make us, this city's contagious
Caught inside its pages
We are leaving it all
Hate us, it'll only save us
Stronger than we came up
We are leaving it all

Hate us, it'll only save us
(Right now, this town is for the taking)
Stronger than we came up
(We'll bring neon to its knees)
We are leaving it all
(Our time to shine beyond the pavement)
We've got everything we need

[Chorus]

    General Commenti love the line "we'll bring neon to its knees." it actually sounds like they're saying "we'll bring neil to his knees." i know its neon, but i like that it could go both ways :)

    General CommentI love this song, it definitely is bout Vegas
    and I love that they have two songs bout there hometown
    the best thing bout the cab is were from the same city
    and seeing there hometown shows and hearing this live is just an amazing experience
    the best experience was seeing Alex Deleon`s face during vegas skies at there last hometown show he dedicated it to Vegas
    it was amazing he kept saying he was overwhelmed with the crowds size it was a HOB
    twice he stopped singing and just stood there smiling in shock
    cuz the whole crowd was singing
    it was really amazing

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this about Alex DeLeon's experience and how he and his friend just packed up to leave to Laguna as I read on the Vegas Skies interpretations. It's about excited feelings, anxiety, overwhelming happiness, and luck.

    "Our time to shine
    Beyond the pavement
    We've got everything we need
    So turn the music up
    You're hearing more than sound
    Right now this town is for the taking
    And it's all we'll ever need."

    General Comment❝so turn the music up, you're hearing more than sound❞

    That line is probably one of the best I have ever heard.

    General CommentI agree with the Vegas bit.
    And like the line,
    "Hate us, It'll only save us"
    Is saying that if they are hated... It'll just help them in the end?
    Idk, I know what I think of that line, but I can't put it in words.
    It's my favorite one.
