Light This City - The Anhedonia Epidemic lyrics

When her body gave into that sickness again
She always knew it would
She didn't want to say a thing
For fear that if he knew,
He'd never risk getting even this close to her

Fever has made her shameless
She's desperate to infect
And she'd kill to hear him moan
With misery
Burning sweet
Keeping her suffering company with his bowels
Twisted from that seductive disease
Some shit spreads with a secret contagion
And you'll either be fascinated or repulsed by the velocity of defeat

Tell me doctor
Are we giving up
Yes I know it's completely fucked.
Show me a credible witness to the existence of a functional love
Or even just a functional fuck
Doctor are you giving up on me
Don't you see it's each other we need
You're the sadist and it seems I just might be

A masochist
Neither one of us satisfied
Until I'm fucking writing
And I overheard them say
Our guinea pigs are in for it
We're straining day and night to find the origin of this mutant strain
Once microscopic
Now epidemic
Which crawled it's way into her brain
She didn't ask for it
But she is passing it to everybody she meets
And it might not be the most pleasurable thing
But this sensation can be so addicting

Tell me doctor are we giving up
Yes I know it's completely fucked
Show me a credible witness to the existence of a functional love
Or even just a functional fuck
Doctor are you giving up on me
Don't you see it's each other we need
You're the sadist and it seems I just might

He won't surrender
His system guards
Against the potential agony.
But he will never realize that
Consequently
He's missing out on ecstasy
He wont surrender
His system protects him against me

Well it wasn't caused by amphetamines
But his dopamine levels are unquestionably depleting
And my favorite hypochondriac is starting to display symptoms of hysterical paralysis
All the doctors can say is
There's nothing physically amiss

Isn't it ironic that I'm the sadist
But now it seems he just might be immune to what I inflict
