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!

Lights dance about
the universe
full of promise
- a heavenly bliss
But in between
there's emptiness
- a hellish curse
that's cancerous
A hellish curse
that's cancerous
A hellish curse
that comes for us

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!

Lights dance about
the universe
full of promise
- a heavenly bliss
But in between
there's emptiness
- a hellish curse
that's cancerous
- a hellish curse
that's cancerous
- a hellish curse
that comes for us
