Contagion Lyrics

jaws -- dripping with disease
fingers for use of weaponry
mind spins in fervor of murder's design
unleashing our buried primal desires

return to instincts we had lost
our blades shall speak with eloquence what human words cannot

terror -- a world of terror we create
maddening howls fill the streets as further spreads the plague

gone -- the affinity to modern man
wavering faith falls to ravenous hands
unbridled malevolence reaches a boil
as strivings of mankind dissolve into fire

the will to conquer suffocates
a trail of shredded carcasses, our morals dissipate

now the end's drawing nearer
upheaval is at hand
animalistic biddings
a reverse evolution of man

terror -- a world of terror we create
maddening howls fill the streets as further spreads the plague

children -- we are the children of the beast
instinct counters reasoning, our rage shall be unleashed

the dreams of man engulfed in fire
this world a heap of burning flesh
the end is baring down upon us
the god of mortals lying dead

This song seems to about how man is on a path eventually leading to self-destruction.

its about zombies... plain, brutal, and simple.

i love the black dahlia murder, just look at the structure, those lyrics, strongly ruling metal and precistance of hardcore all hail to TBDM

An error occured.

They play a very European-style of metal. And btw, are they actually 2 people in this song who are lyricists? One voice is really raspy and the other comes in at certain points and is deep.

An error occured.

I meant vocalists not lyricists.

An error occured.

Trevor Strnad - Highs & Lows Brian Eschbach - Guitar/Backup screams John Kempainen - Lead Guitar David Lock - Bass Zach Gibson - Blasts

i think one of the guitarists does the real deep voice

An error occured.

no trevor strnad does the deep voice too. thats wht lows mean...low voice which mean deep.

but anyway these guys are fucking nasty

An error occured.

I always thougth the song to be about the movie "28 Days later", where the UK is overrun by a disease called "the Rage" which turns people into frenzied killing machines

"jaws -- dripping with disease" because people bitten will become infected too "fingers for use of weaponry" - They fight with their bare hands "mind spins in fervor of murder's design" - They are completely insane only driven by the urge to kill

"unleashing our buried primal desires" - Infected people behave more like wild animals, not humans

"terror -- a world of terror we create maddening howls fill the streets as further spreads the plague"

The streets of the citys are filled with "the infected" people, who spread the disease more and more

All the other lines even more seem to point out the same thing. Everyone who has seen the movie should know what I mean.

An error occured.

i heard somewhere that this song was about zombies coming to life but its through the perspective of a zombie

An error occured.

the high pitched screamer trevor rules. it's hard to believe that the growler also plays guitar since he sings even more than trevor, how on earth can he remain concentrated.

An error occured.

B12- Trevor does both voices most of the time. There is only one main singer. Maybe when both voices are going at the same time, the guitarist does back up. But most of the time, it's just Trevor.
