Disease is the sixth single released from the band's fourth album, Day of the Dead.

Background

J-Dog spoke with Artist Direct about the track. "That was one of the first songs we wrote for this record. We didn't know where it would go. We were getting into the process of ideas and writing. We started out with the drum beat. Everyone was throwing out ideas. It was one of the first to start and last to finish. It was a mixture of everyone throwing out ideas and coming together."

Lyrics

Da Kurlzz: Ah! Ah!
Ah!

Charlie Scene: I need you God, so won't you please help me now?
These are the only cards that you dealt me out
This is the moment that we won't be held down
Our words are broken but they're spoken aloud
So come together, come together again
The time is now, let Armageddon begin
They say beginnings always start with the ends
I say forever and forever, amen

Johnny 3 Tears: Forget what you are
Forget what you feel
We stand apart but fall together
Nothing ever lasts forever

Danny: We're born to live, we're born to die
We're forced to swallow these pills and to never ask why
What I've become, what can you see?
That everybody, everybody, everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease

J-Dog: Deepen my vein, hang in the gallow
Gas the pain, feeling so hollow
Drown in the shame, deep in the shallow
Not the same but feeling so hallow
I'd crash the train just to start a revolution
I'm not insane, I just want to be free
Da Kurlzz: (Free!)
J-Dog: It's not the same if it's our execution
Let them all see you're Undead just like me
So I'm to blame, the one to follow?
Give it away, got nothing to borrow
Fuck the fame, fuck the sorrow
Live with today and never tomorrow

Johnny 3 Tears: Forget what you are
Forget what you feel
We stand apart but fall together
Nothing ever lasts forever

Danny: We're born to live, we're born to die
We're forced to swallow these pills and to never ask why
What I've become, what can you see?
That everybody, everybody, everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease

Johnny 3 Tears: I tried to believe on my knees, it's so hard
When they pick and they pull and they tear you apart
But they won't let me go, no, they won't let me go
And I'm dying baby, dying baby, dying so slow
Walk in the world, it's so empty, you know
In the land of the beautiful, beauty is cold
And it won't let me go, no, they won't let me go
And I'm dying baby, dying baby, dying alone

Danny: We're born to live, we're born to die
We're forced to swallow these pills and to never ask why
What I've become, what can you see?
That everybody, everybody, everybody's got this disease

Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)
Danny: Everybody's got this disease
Da Kurlzz: (Hey! Hey!)

Background vocals

  • An unidentifiable vocalist sings "everybody's got this disease" with Danny the second time it is said on the chorus. The vocalist is unidentifiable because their voice is modulated and deeply pitched.
  • Da Kurlzz shouts "revolution" and "execution" behind J-Dog.
  • Danny sings "I crashed the train to just to start a revolution/I'm not insane, I just want to be free/It's not the same if it's our execution/Let them all see you're Undead just like me" behind J-Dog.
