A view on a battle with cancer


Taste My Fist

You came in like a gunslinger trying to take me down
You got lucky with the very first shot and won the opening round
When I awake every day, I sit at the edge of my bed
I reach down to the floor and the past replays inside my head

Things have been hard but I’m not one to complain
If I dwelt on the things of the past, I’d go totally insane
We can stand toe to toe with an IV in my wrist
And I’m gonna give you fair warning,
You’re gonna love to taste my fist

Taste My Fist

If you care to hang around, I’ve told you once before
Once we get into the thick of things, it’s an all out war
You can choose and walk away but if this problem persists
I’m gonna give you fair warning,
You’re gonna love to taste my fist

You have a reputation, that’s feared all over this land
People shudder when they say your name and I have seen it first hand
Until it’s done, its all talk and I think you’re a great pretender
There’s one path I will not take, and that’s the path to surrender

My tombstone is set but I think that’s premature
You can unlock the gates of hell but that’s something I can endure
And after this is over, you worthless piece of shit
Once it’s done, it’s done for all
You’re gonna fall, now taste my fist
