Cancer in the Universe

Updated: Jul 1

We spent five days

in the back of a truck

Arrived in your land, shit outta luck

We’d nowhere to sleep, nowhere to wash

Set adrift at sea like an albatross


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s a cancer in this Universe

and it started right down here on Earth


I saw him caught

and cuffed in chains

And I was there when they blew his brains

I tried my best but I cannot lie

I did stand by and watch him die


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s a cancer in this Universe

and it started right down here on Earth


We have a choice

and we have reason

We need a voice

to side-step treason

There is Truth

and there's Deceit

Choose it right

and we’re not beat


Born without love,

without a lot

Always returned more than he got

Every man needs a place of his own

Every man needs a place to call home


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s a cancer in this Universe

and it started right down here on Earth


I’ll remember his death

until I’m done

The stunning sound of that hellish gun

He’s in me now as he was back then

My father king of all living men


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s a cancer in this Universe

and it started right down here on Earth


We have a choice

and we have reason

We need a voice

to side-step treason

There is Truth

and there's Deceit

Choose it right

and we’re not beat


He ran the race

didn’t finish first

They set the pace

and he was cursed

It’s now his time

to close the door

Rest in peace

for ever more


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s a cancer in this Universe

and it started right down here on Earth


We have a choice

and we have reason

We need a voice

to side-step treason

There is Truth

and there's Deceit

Choose it right

and we’re not beat


He ran the race

didn’t finish first

They set the pace

and he was cursed

It’s now his time

to close the door

Rest in peace

for ever more
