I Wish I Could Eat Your Cancer When You Turn Black…

Today’s Prompt:   Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

Challenge accepted.   Everyday I wake up with a song and it plays in my head all day, whether I like it or not.  Today, thankfully, it’s a song I actually love.

Today’s song was:  Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana

The lyrics “I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black”  are as haunting today as they were when I first heard them nearly 20 years ago (!!!!).  Such brilliant writing from a brilliant mind.  I can only imagine how far Nirvana would’ve gone if Kurt Cobain were still alive.

On a side note….

While searching for a link to the video, I came across a version that Evanescence (love them) did.   I truly believe that a remake should either be the same or better than the original, so I tend to shy away from them.  However, this one deserves  mad props.

Here are the lyrics:

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I’ve been locked inside your Heart Shaped box for weeks
I’ve been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

…your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on Angel Hair and babys breath
Broken hymen of your highness I’m left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
…Your advice

*SOLO*

She has me like a pisces when I am weak
I’ve been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks
I’ve been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could Eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice
Your advice
Your advice
