Down with Disease Lyrics

Lyrics:

(Anastasio/Marshall)
© Who Is She? Music, Inc. (BMI)

Down with disease

Three weeks in my bed

Trying to stop these demons that keep dancing in my head

Down with disease

Up before the dawn

A thousand barefoot children outside dancing on my lawn, and I keep

Waiting for the time when I can finally say

That this has all been wonderful but now I’m on my way

But when I think it’s time to leave it all behind

I try to find a way but there’s nothing I can say to make it stop

Down with disease and the jungles in my mind

They’re climbing up my waterfalls and swingin’ on my vines

So I try to hear the music but I’m always losing time

‘Cause they’re stepping on my rhythm and they’re stealin’ all my lines

Stealin’ all my lines and I keep

Waiting for the time when I can finally say

That this has all been wonderful but now I’m on my way

But when I think it’s time to leave it all behind

I try to find a way but there’s nothing I can say to make it stop
