"Cancer For The Cure" as written by Mark O. Everett and Mickey Petralia....
The kids are diggin' up a brand new hole
Where to put the deadbeat mom
Grandpa's happy watching video porn
With the close-caption on
And father knows best
About suicide and smack
Well, hee hee hee

Cancer for the cure
Cancer for the cure
Buckle-up and endure now baby
Cancer for the cure

'Ol blue eyes is back again
But he was never here in the first place
A heart attack may be something to fear
But take a look out back
'Cause Courtney needs love
And so do I
Well, hee hee hee

Cancer for the cure
Cancer for the
Cure my baby
Buckle-up and endure now sweet thing
The cancer for the cure

    General CommentFirstly... no-one is a moron if we get it wrong.
    Secondly, could you give a link to the source MetaLuna.

    I'm pretty sure it was somewhat based on his mother's death (even if only because her condition turned him to think about cancer as a whole.), but it isn't DIRECTLY related (like Dead of Winter.)

    General CommentActually, the song is about something entirely different. It really has nothing to do with his mother's death.

    And you're all morons.

    General Comment*ahem*

    "It’s like we are looking for a cure against cancer, but in some way it’s the opposite entrance to it. Like healing a wound instead of changing things, so the wound wouldn't even arise. What happens when the cure for cancer gets cancer? If we find a cure for cancer we will just continue doing things that fucks the world up and make cancer inside. There is a reason for cancer, it will be replaced by something else" - Mr E

    General CommentDispite any inner meaning, I really just like the song purely based on the line "Grampa's happy watchin' video porn with the closed caption on". E has one of my favorite senses of humor.
