Cancer

I can't believe I haven't posted this one. I wrote it last year, can't remember the exact date. Anyhow it's a song. ---------------- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see them fall? You lose one you lose them all She's seen the cruel hearts of stone She's seen the cancer we've become So lost in worry we just fall down Underground we burn Till the last one's sure Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all Cut me out of this body! Cut me out of everybody! Grind me into little pieces! Tell them that I'm the reason- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all You lose one you lose. . . Them all

    Yes--exactly. Now how do we navigate through the minefield? I have tried. Sometimes with success and sometimes not. Your description is such an inspiration. You are so passionate that you sometimes raise my anxiety level just a bit. You make me feel like I am walking on a dark night through a graveyard and that my real life is a dream!

    Great lyrics. I may try and put it to music and see what I come up with. Super idea about "You lose on you lose.... them all" Kilmer
