New Years Day - Epidemic Lyrics




We are the new disease,
eating hearts like cancer
the sickness in our minds
believes everything

plagued by fiction
like a sick addiction
there's a virus deep inside us
and it kills

Can you taste it in the blood?
when you breathe it in you lungs?
if you feel it coming on
It's too late

We are infected and no one is protected
we're so, we're so contagious
we're apathetic and no one's sympathetic
we're so contagious
you can't contain it,
you know, you can't escape it
we're so, we're so contagious
our hearts betrayed us,
and no one's gonna save us
we're so contagious

when will someone admit it
we're a generation of cynics
when everyone's a critic
and no one really gives a shit
(When our hate goes viral)
If ignorance is bliss,
How do we live like this?
there's nothing we can do
to try and take control
when it spreads to your soul

Can you taste it in the blood?
when you breathe it in you lungs?
if you feel it coming on
It's too late

We are infected and no one is protected
we're so, we're so contagious
we're apathetic and no one sympathetic
we're so contagious
you can't contain it,
you know, you can't escape it
we're so, we're so contagious
our hearts betrayed us
and no one's gonna save us
we're so contagious

There's no cure for what's in us
so pessimistic, quick to judge
Now there's poison on our tongues
this epidemic's gonna kill us all

(We're all infected)

We are infected and no one is protected
we're so, we're so contagious
we're apathetic and no one sympathetic
we're so contagious
you can't contain it,
you know, you can't escape it
we're so, we're so contagious
our hearts betrayed us
and no one's gonna save us
we're so contagious

It's gonna kill us all
It's so contagious

  70. H Milz

    This was fucking amazing live, I could barely move my neck afterwards I head banged so much

    Caitlin Hawkins

    you loose 14 brain cells every time you bang your head.... just a comment :)

    H Milz

    +Caitlin Hawkins oh dear, I better keep that in mind 😂

    Ashlynn Konoval

    +Caitlin Hawkins Actually when you head bang most of the pressure is in your neck, and you don't loose brain cells from it unless you have actually hit your head on other objects. and even then it more depends on the trauma done to establish the amount of brain cells lost.

    Caitlin Hawkins

    hm... the more you know ^-^

    Chemical Kid From Yesterday Mama We All Go To Hell

    +Caitlin Hawkins not if you smoke weed (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  81. UkatoP

    Can someone tell me why the EP was removed from iTunes? Like I'm glad I downloaded it before it was removed but I deleted "Let me down" because it was glitches and when I went to redownload it the whole EP was gone

    Richie Herlinger

    +SatanThePenguin I just now looked, it's still there if you hadn't noticed by now. Maybe they took it down due to the glitch in the song and replaced it.

    LisV :3

    It's back!
