The New Contagion

MESSMAKER

Lyrics

A tree grows in the city by Chernobyl

It's branches broken through concrete and rubble

And it's thriving here where life, some feared, would never rise again

So let it grow

Let it grow

After every hurricane the sun starts shining

Foreshadowed by the storm cloud's silver lining

And a focused ray of hope can touch a spark that starts a flame

So let it grow

Let it grow

This is the new contagion

Like a fire it grew and now it's raging

It opens eyes and touches hearts

Now's the moment, we can start to let it grow

Don't keep our dreams in cages

Hope is the new contagion

You can watch your house collapse in ash and ember

And you can quit, or grab an axe and cut new timber

And just like neighbors always do, they'll bring their tools and build with you

So let it grow

Let that light glow

This is the new contagion

Like a fire it grew and now it's raging

It opens eyes and touches hearts

Now's the moment, we can start to let it grow

Don't keep our dreams in cages

Hope is the new contagion

You know darkness can't be measured

It's just an absence of light

So let the glow of hope keep spreading like a virus through the night

We know we're all in this together

But we know not how long we'll fight

So let the glow of hope keep spreading like a virus through the night

Glow spread through the night

This is the new contagion

Like a fire it grew and now it's raging

This is the new contagion

Like a fire it grew and now it's raging

It opens eyes and touches hearts

Now's the moment, we can start to let it grow

Don't keep our dreams in cages

Hope is the new contagion

For every mood
