Thought Contagion Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Strung out falling from the big time
Welcome to the infinite black skies
Brain cleansed fractured identity
Fragments and scattered debris

[Chorus]
Thought contagion
Thought contagion


[Verse 2]
Fall down learn when to count it out
Prop me up before I black out
Withdraw before you're out of time
A clean slate and buried war crimes

[Chorus]
You've been bitten by a true believer
You've been bitten by someone who's hungrier than you
You've been bitten by a true believer
You've been bitten by someone's false beliefs

Thought contagion
Thought contagion


[Verse 3]
They'll never do what you want them to
Give it up and watch them break through
It's too late for a revolution
Brace for the final solution

[Chorus]
Thought contagion
Thought contagion


[Chorus]
You've been bitten by a true believer
You've been bitten by someone who's hungrier than you
You've been bitten by a true believer
You've been bitten by someone's false beliefs

Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh-oh-oh
Thought contagion
Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh-oh-oh
Thought contagion

Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh-oh-oh

[Outro]
Strung out falling from the big time
Welcome to the infinite black skies
Oh-woah-oh-woah-oh-oh-oh
It's too late for a revolution
Brace for the final solution

About “Thought Contagion”

Via Twitter, Matthew Bellamy described “Thought Contagion” as “Fury” part II. The song describes how in today’s day and age people’s ideologies are spread worldwide, how ideas which may be wrong or incorrect will still have great power due to the amount of following they have.

Before the release of the track, fans analyzed the single artwork and saw that the license plate on the car has the number 02.15. They predicted it was the release date of the song, as Matt hinted that new song is coming in early February; this eventually was confirmed to be true.

In the music video, one can see Vampires who bite people in order to turn them into an offspring vampire. This tells us that by giving airtime to false beliefs (Vampires), they’ll take advantage of people’s emotions and how they can easily affect and change your beliefs. In the beginning of the video, the protagonist is playing a game called “Dig Down” which is about fighting the wrong side and brawling for what you believe in. During the video, he is changed into a vampire (his beliefs are affected and changed) and finally we can see “Game Over” title on the game screen; Which means he’s lost his beliefs to the wrong side.

In the music video, you could see a cassette with the Emotionality Rush label on it. It could be the title of their 8th album written as anagram on pixels which were distributed among people in cinemas during Drones World Tour Movie.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    We’re living in an age where these sort of ideologies, people’s belief systems, whether they are true or false, are getting a lot of air time, especially ones on the false side. I think that we’re living in an unusual period where a lot of airtime is being given to crazy ideas. The flip side is that we’re living in a time where pointing out someone’s inaccuracies, using science for example, is becoming increasingly difficult. Sometimes it’s even perceived as an insensitive thing to do.

    The verses are me streaming off anxieties and feelings, which in the course of the song, I’m wondering whether they’re actually mine or not. I don’t know to what extent I’m influenced by others. Sometimes your anxieties about the world or your anxieties about the world of the future can be lessened by turning the news off and turning your phone off for a few days. You then realize that everything is fine.

    The key line in the song is: “You’ve been bitten by a true believer/ You’re been bitten by someone who is hungrier than you/ You’ve been bitten by someone’s false beliefs.” That summarizes what I’m trying to get at here, which is sometimes in life you will come across situations where someone who is a bit ideological or believes things that are not true in any way will sometimes have more power than you, over you or get more airtime. I think that’s really what the song is about. It’s about how other people’s false belief systems can infect your own and sometimes even affect your feelings."
