Cancer
My Chemical Romance Lyrics


Turn away
If you could get me a drink
Of water 'cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie

Help her gather all my things
And bury me
In all my favorite colors
My sisters and my brothers, still

I will not kiss you
'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

Now turn away
'Cause I'm awful just to see
'Cause all my hair's abandoned all my body
All my agony
Know that I will never marry
Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo
But counting down the days to go

It just ain't living
And I just hope you know
That if you say (if you say)

Good-bye today (good-bye today)
I'd ask you to be true (I'd ask you to be true)

'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

'Cause the hardest part of this
Is leaving you

Both my parents went through cancer.

2012 - Dad, prostate cancer stage 3

2014 - Mom, breast cancer stage 3/4 (due to her breast size, docs were unsure how far the tumor was along)
2016 - Mom, thyroid cancer

2017 - Mom, skin cancer

My family and I are leaving behind the darkest decade of our lives behind and moving on to something bright. Today I’m thankful I can still get kisses from both my mom and dad. I count my blessings and to anyone reading this who is missing their loved ones, I’m terribly sorry for your losses. It’s the hardest part of losing them but we will carry on. <3 Love to you all out there.

My mom never smoked at all but passed away 5 years ago because of lung cancer. She had serious headache as there was metastasis to her brain in the later stage. It killed me every time when I watched her suffering from such indescribable pain.


When she was first diagnosed with lung cancer, it was only stage II B. During these two and a half years, she never grumbled her fate but showed incredible courage and stayed positive all the way through. When she was semiconscious and her eyes barely focused, I could do nothing but holding her hands and saying love her, which is the thing that I had not done in the past 21 years.


5 years passed but I still break down in tears sometimes when I think of her. I wish I could have a day to talk with her, regarding all the moments we shared and all the inner feeling toward her. The only way I can ease my pain is to believe I will meet her in the afterlife.


I want to let anyone who see this comment know that I am with you. What you need to do is to hope for the best and prepare for the worse. Cherish the time you have with your family and friends. Do the things you want to do with them and say the words you want to say to them while you can. Que Sera, Sera.

Gerard way sings it like he's still fighting. Tyler sings it like he's already given up.

Claire Lanaghan

Bro did you put the same comment on both videos?

@Mirko This was four years ago and my comments were a bit harsh, but I still do not care for the Twenty One Pilots version.

Love TØP though

Mirko

@bigsirenguy Only if you're braindead and don't understand anything about music.

Juliana Gentil

@A. B Kitchen SInk specifically is about struggling with purpose and making your own purpose by creating something of which only you know the meaning of.

Juliana Gentil

@A. B kitchen sink and many others are about the fight against depression not directly about having depression and being sad. a lot of his songs mention that people should keep their heads up and there is hope in the world, there are a lot of positive messages.
