Everyone knows that cancer takes bites of every family,
And it eats up families whole
Dance around the issue
Take issue with the answers provided
The past few years radiate with treatment,
But to every day she'll put her cap on and greet them
She's got demons but you'll never meet them
Yeah, we hope one day that she can finally beat them all
She laughs for us,
She laughs so we don't worry
She smiles through the pain and keeps the details blurry
My intentions are not to expose
The depths of her trouble aren't mine to disclose,
But like evening rain on the petal of a rose,
It drips down to the earth and then begins to compose
And if there's one thing that remains so crystal clear to us,
It's that the wondering hands of the Gods are so Goddamn mysterious
Like there could be a justification
For the lives it takes and the lives that it's shaken
This isn't a eulogy or a requiem,
Just some words I sketched out because I haven't said them
This isn't about her father or brother
Just a few simple words so she knows that I love her
And tragedy will never disaffect her
I hope she knows how much I respect her
My intentions are not to expose, inverse, or impose
The depths of her troubles aren't mine to disclose
But like evening rain on the petal of a rose,
It drips down to the earth and begins to compose
A song worth singing
A wound that keeps on stinging
And a once sinking feeling that's always worth clinging on to
And a stone at a glass house that's always worth slinging
She laughs for us,
She laughs so we don't worry
She smiles through the pain and keeps the details blurry
My intentions are not to expose
The depths of her trouble aren't mine to disclose,
But like evening rain on the petal of a rose,
It drips down to the earth and then begins to compose
Saints walk the Earth
They don't patrol the skies
They're the people right behind you running tandem through the night
It's the comfort that's discovered between two sets of eyes
It's the hand that stills the other that shakes like candlelight
Scurrilous (2011)
