This is by Zeke Hoskin, from his CD "Lethal Reprieve".


Life is lethal (but the cure is worse)
Zeke Hoskin
transcribed by Leland Bryant Ross (Haruo)


There is a condition transmitted sexually
With a hundred percent mortality
'n' I've got it, you've got it, we've all got it
And it's our parents' doin' that we caught it
It's called being alive and we might as well love it,
Even though we're dying of it.
Don't try to cure it, please!
The cure is much worse than the disease.
If we kill all the children and the women and the men,
No one will ever have to die again!
We're born with a one-way ticket on a hearse;
Life is lethal, but the cure is worse.

Every now and then, History sends a man
Like Alexander or Genghis Khan
Though Genghis was canny, Alexander was Greater
They both kept a lot of folks from dying later.
So remember them kindly, for all of their killin',
They prevented more deaths than penicillin
Don't try to cure it, please!
The cure is much worse than the disease.
If we kill all the children and the women and the men,
No one will ever have to die again!
We're born with a one-way ticket on a hearse;
Life is lethal, but the cure is worse.

Drinkin' my coffee, eatin' my toast,
Newspaper says we're all gonna roast.
Bombs gonna fall, missiles gonna fly,
The year after that one, nobody gonna die,
And the Sun will be beamin' in his daughter's direction
Cause the Earth has got rid of her skin infection.
Don't try to cure it, please!
The cure is much worse than the disease.
If we kill all the children and the women and the men,
No one will ever have to die again!
We're born with a one-way ticket on a hearse;
Life is lethal, death is final,
Life is lethal, but the cure is worse!
