More Lyrics for the Somber Masses

Gah! I friggin' HATE My Chemical Romance, because they write such lyrically brilliant and touching songs, which are made barely listenable by Gerard Way's OTT emo delivery. If I want whining, I have plenty of The Cure to listen to - and nobody does whining like Robert Smith.

Anyway, thanks to Conor for pointing out this track...

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 hairs abandoned all my body,
Oh, 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
Goodbye today
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

- "Cancer", My Chemical Romance
