The Black Dahlia Murder – 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
