“Cancer” – Twenty One Pilots (My Chemical Romance Cover) [YouTube Lyric Video]

LYRICS

My Chemical Romance “Cancer” 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 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 (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

Twenty One Pilots have shared a lyric video for their cover of My Chemical Romance’s 2006 song “Cancer.” Listen to it above, courtesy of Twenty One Pilots’ YouTube.

The song originally appeared on MCR’s album, The Black Parade. “Cancer” is a beautiful song with heartfelt lyrics, and Twenty One Pilots don’t stray far from My Chemical Romance’s original. Soft beats, keyboard flourishes, and emotional vocals set a somber mood for the track.

Twenty One Pilots are scheduled to begin their Emotional Roadshow world tour on September 30 in Mexico. For more music, news, and tour dates, check out their Zumic Artist Page.
