Wormword is based on the short story "Entry Taken from a Medical Encyclopaedia" from China Mieville's book of short stories "Looking for Jake." The 4 sections of the piece first summarise the disease named Wormword, then depict the 3 phases of the disease. In the end all the band members have contracted the disease. Just listen and it'll make more sense with the narration ;)
