  1. Happiness

Inspired/fueled/angered by Disney, Fairy Tales, the Beatles, Madison Avenue, Barbie, ex-girlfriends, and Gary Jules, this ironic dirge to everyone's favorite dangling rotten carrot, Happiness, will resonate with the hopeful cynic in all of us. Enjoy.

Happiness

Happiness is a
lovely dress
Hanging on
a mannequin
In the window
of a store
Without a door.
Happiness
is above the rest
Like a cloud you can live in,
up in the sky
Forevermore, forevermore
Heard the songs And I read
the books I saw the films in the dark But I’m still here in the dark
Are you still there?

Happiness is a beautiful mess
Someone really needs to address.
I would try, but I’ve failed so hard before O - h - o - h
Chorus:
Happiness is the rising sun Happiness is still a warm gun
Happiness is killing us
Can anyone save us from happiness
Heard the songs And I read
the books I saw the films in the dark But I’m still here in the dark
Are you still there?
Are you still there?
Happiness is a joke, I guess
The set-ups good, but we know the rest
Hmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm la di da
