Lyrics

I’m so happy, happy
I’m so happy, happy
I’m so happy, happy
Everything is crumbling (Crumbling, crumbling)
Everything is crumbling (Crumbling, crumbling)
Everything is crumbling (Crumbling, crumbling)

Happy, happy
Happy, happy, happy, happy

Choose your poison, poison
Choose your poison, poison
Choose your poison, poison
Everything is shutting down (Shutting down, shutting down)
Everything is shutting down (Shutting down, shutting down)
Everything is shutting down (Shutting down, shutting down)

Poison, poison
Happy, happy, happy, happy

Eat (Eat), fly (Fly), silence (Silence), joy (Joy)
Cat (Cat), sequence (Sequence), future (Future), puppy (Motherfucking puppy)
My (My), own (Own), mother (Mother), fucking (Motherfucking)
Life, burned down like a hole in the warm soft ground
Child, happy, fear
My own voice
Concentrating on flies
Fill me up, knock me down
Take my hand, in my hand, and my eloquent knife
Through my heart, through my heart
Straight through my mother-motherfucking
Heart belongs to you
My heart belongs to you

Puppyfuckers
Puppyfuckers
Puppyfucker
Puppyfucker
Puppyfucker
Puppyfucker
Puppyfucker
Eye for an eye, eye for an eye
Tickety-tackety, tickety-tackety
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Never enough, but it’s never the truth
Life is a dream, so pretty and pink
Youth is wasted on the mother
Youth is, youth is wasted on the mother
Youth is wasted on the motherfucking
Wasted on the motherfucking youth

I’m so happy, happy
I’m so happy, happy
Snapchat, rotting rats, Minecraft, Cheerios
Netflix, bag of tricks, soothe my soul
My anesthesiologist is fucking my psychiatrist
And I feel no pain, cover me with Lidocaine
I’m so happy, everything’s so great
And the world is an oyster on an appetizer plate

Happy
Happy
Happy
Happy, happy, happy
