Cancer In The Universe

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

but we stayed out of sight, made it across


Late that night

hate showed up in town

a gang of young fascists hunted us down

You tripped and fell as we fled from the lane

I turned and saw them blow out your brains

Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s cancer in the universe!

And it started right down here on Earth!


I stayed alive

but I cannot lie

I was ripped apart when my brother died

I’ll hear his screams ‘til the day I’m done

and the deafening sound of that hellish gun


Unloved at birth

with no after thought

we were orphans wanting more than we got

Homeless migrants from a war-torn zone

refugees caught in search of a home


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s cancer in the universe!

And it started right down here on Earth!


He’s in me now

like he was back then

alive in my thoughts until the end

Who knows who goes before the other

that's how it was for me and my brother


Was it love or hate that came in first?

Was the winner death or was it birth?

There’s cancer in the universe!

And it started right down here on Earth!
