thewendolyne Sad happy drugs. An unfortunate American reality. This song captures the mood swing on the upside. Favorite track: Happy Now.

Everything is black and burning. Lightning, thunder and rain. Tanks are rolling into town, Soldiers marching in the lane. Say it’s all your fault [You] rage and crush and maim. People are screaming and runn’ng, Army, Navy, National guard. Highways clogged with traffic, Most of the city is charred. Say you’re a freak of nature. [Causing] panic in the boulevard. [chorus] They say terrible things about you. [They say] you’re a fire-breathing dragon. I’m sort of a monster too. Together we can face their guns. My sweet, if we hook up -- We can make arm-a-ged-don. [spoken verse] I’m not any kind of hero Not riding any kind of horse. [There’s a] trail of destruction behind me [you’ll] know if you do some research. There’s an angry mob coming after [Each] with a burning torch. So you knocked over a few buildings Started a little fire, Knocked some cars around Ripped out a few live wires. You’re so scorching hot dear, Fan the flames of my desire. [chorus] [They say] you walk the earth. High and mighty titan. [but] I’m a go-li-ath too. Together we could have some fun. [It’s a] wonder to watch you work. Let’s make an-ni-a-la-tion. My sweet little turtle dove [baby doll, dragon girl, etc.] Let’s crush ’em to o-bli-vi-on.

I went to the doctor the other day told her my world was dull and grey she said just take three of these and soon you’ll be happy I hated my job, hated my life I hated my dog, I hated my wife what I needed to be free was my behavior treated chemically [1st chorus] And I’m happy now til the pills wear off with just a few little love me’s I’m no longer in need of therapy so I’m happy now ‘til the pills wear off happiness obtained pharmeceutically It’s better living through chemistry [2nd verse] Now I float down the street with a smile on my face unhappy memories completley erased now with one trip to the pharmacy my attitude changed immediatly now I love my job, I love my life I love my dog ,not so sure about my wife may need to get her help like me and then she can also be..... [2nd chorus] [lead with some spoken drug names] [3rd verse] went back to the doctor to refill my plate place was covered in police tape now I have to live without help and I suck just like everyone else now I hate my job, I hate my life I ate my dog, ran away from my wife now with no more little love me’s I may need a lobotomy (final chorus) so I’m unhappy now cause the pills wore off without the help from the pharmacy I don’t know how to be me so I’m unhappy now cause the pills wore off without the help of modern chemistry I don’t know what’s to become of me [more drug names]

I heard welfare moms [are] driving in limosines [and eating caviar] driving around in limosines and drinking champagne I know it’s alarming but it’s all too real I heard it all on Fox news so it must really be true I saw it all on Fox news you won’t hear the truth on any other station they’re liberal propaganda [bent on] crippling the nation The Feds know where you live [are] gonna come for you They’re gonna come for you [in the middle of the night] there’s no time to lose patriots, get your guns I heard it all on Fox news so it must really be true I saw it all on Fox news Obama’s gonna take [all] our money [and] kill the blessed unborn [then] put grandma in a death camp [and] force her to watch porn if you care ‘bout your country [and] freedom from death panel [you’re] gonna have to rise up and change that blasted channel! Fox news fair and balanced fox news hard news Fox news real reporting Fox news America’s newsroom

[partial lyrics] she’s watching me from the end of the bar the need in her eyes impossible to ignore I try and look away, it doesn’t matter any longer she leads me into the deep dark water [chorus] swimming the dark backwards it’s like kinda of like dying the mind learns by doing the heart learns by trying [verse 2] we talk and play these silly games each of us knowing how this will end waist deep(?) in treading water one last breath and we both go under [chorus] swimming the dark backwards it’s like kinda of like dying the mind learns by doing the heart learns by trying [bridge] [clap break] 4 measures [verse 2] a chance encounter, never meant to be ______________ glance away each of us unsure what to say ___________ all over the ______ [chorus] swimming the dark backwards it’s like kinda of like dying the mind learns by doing the heart learns by trying [chorus] swimming the dark backwards...

Walked to school on the sidewalks of the suburbs, Maybe an inchworm across my path. We have squirrels and big bird feeders, Raccoons picking through the trash. Overhead the sky was filled with Airplanes flying every which way. [Chorus] Oh how I’d like to live in the country, Out in the wild where it’s dark at night, Where the wild things live free in the country, Oh how I’d love to live there too. I live in a one-room apartment Just enough space to turn around. I sleep to the ‘frigerator Wake to squeals of garbage trucks. Only wildlife is living on the verges Getting killed as they cross the road. [repeat Chorus] Now I’m a city kid Don’t know about nature. Thought animals had a right to be. A right to roam as they have for millennia, From sea to shining sea. Got none in Congress to defend them -- What about their liberty? [ending] Isn’t that what we loved? Purple mountain majesty Leave something for the future Something beautiful and wild and free Something beautiful and wild and free Something beautiful and wild and free
