Tom MacDonald F Cancer Lyrics English

[Verse 1]
Everybody knows someone who’s sick
Forty percent will get cancer, only half’s gonna live
Your mom and your dad and your sister stand inside a room
And someone won’t survive it, do you hope it isn’t you?

I swear that cancer has a cure, but they’re refusing to make it
They’ve done like forty years of research, ninety billion in donations
We’ve been running for the cure and wearing ribbons for ages
Why are people still going through radiation? It’s fucking crazy

Hundred billion-dollar industry, they can’t afford to end it
And nobody wants to die, our only option is to spend it
We give anything to stick around for just another second
Give a fortune to the doctors who promise they can extend it

The profits are astronomic, the hospital and the clinics
Of fillings coffins with dollars, it’s awful, let’s just admit it
We’re all human, we’ll keep fighting ’cause it’s how we survive
But it’s scary ’cause we don’t know where we’ll go when we die

[Chorus]
Don’t give up, I know you’re strong, show them all your fire
The days are hard, the nights are long
But you are a fighter, when it’s dire, you burn brighter in the dark
You’re a survivor, when you’re tired, you hold tighter, you have heart

[Verse 2]
Nothing matters if you don’t have your health
All the money in the world doesn’t help
The good might go to Heaven and the bad might go to Hell
But no one wants to leave here, you can tell
And cancer touches everyone, it’s in our genetics

And our world’s become so toxic, it’s all carcinogenic
We’ve polluted the water, the air; the food we’re ingesting
Is full of hormones and poison, our population’s infected
They sell us cigarettes and liquor, built a business on addictions
We’ve been paying them to kill ourselves, we’re dying to keep living

It’s the system, it’s a prison, we keep trying to beat it
We get cancer from keeping all of our demons a secret
And our insurance don’t cover the things we need to defeat it
And even if it does, then we might die from the treatment
Our best defence is living like we do not know what cancer is
Fight it if you have it and pray that there’s something after this

[Chorus]
Don’t give up, I know you’re strong, show them all your fire
The days are hard, the nights are long
But you are a fighter, when it’s dire, you burn brighter in the dark
You’re a survivor, when you’re tired, you hold tighter, you have heart

[Bridge]
You won’t know how to be brave
Till you choose to fight when you’re afraid
And you can’t experience strength
Till you struggle to carry the weight

And you won’t know why you have faith
Till you look the Devil in his face
And you don’t know what you can take
Till you realize you didn’t break

[Chorus]
Don’t give up, I know you’re strong, show them all your fire
The days are hard, the nights are long
But you are a fighter, when it’s dire, you burn brighter in the dark
You’re a survivor, when you’re tired, you hold tighter, you have heart
