I thought I had cancer inside my colon
when I found blood in my stool.
Thought it was cancer when my tongue felt swollen;
curthed God for being tho cruel.
I thought I had cancer inside my eyes,
which is rare in a person so young.
But rare didn't stop me from starting to cry  
when I felt the thing spread to my lungs. 
I thought my mole was a cancerous mole
because it it looked bumpy and brown.
When my pancreas tingled, beyond my control
I knew I was going down.

I made a long, sappy funeral mix
and pictured all my friends cryin'
Watched a short film bout the death of Bill Hicks
and that sad football film, LIFE OF BRIAN.
But when I went to my doctor, Miss Klein,
to find out the source of my pain
She told me my body was perfectly fine--
the cancer was just in my brain!
