lyrics

God asked me once, YOU WANT PARADISE?
I said, sure...but just to clarify,
what's the catch? Come on throw it at me.
TWO WORDS, ONE ACTION: BE HAPPY.

What do mean, regardless of the price?
YOU'VE ALREADY PAID WITH YOUR LIFE...Right, but
how can we be happy with all this bullshit?
BULLSHIT EXISTS, IT'S STILL YOUR CHOICE TO LIVE, KID.

Oh...it's that simple...like
popping a pimple...YOU KNOW YOU LIKE IT...like
dropping a thimble full of LSD for one
swell-ass week? MORE LIKE PERMANENTLY.

Just be happy amidst such foul play, on a
planet where some 'civilized' nations now claim, that
winning at any-and-all-costs is a proud aim, whether
genocide, torture or some economic bowel pain?

JUST BE HAPPY. Like that, no room for argument?
WE CAN ARGUE, I KNOW YOU LIKE TO SPAR A BIT.
No! I want to be happy! GOT'CHA! THEN PROVE IT.
Fine, how must I come to it? JUST DO IT.

God! You're so cliche'! WELL THERE'S A REASON WHY,
SO CLICHE' MEANS MOST SAW THE WHOLE REPLAY, AND
NOW IT'S COMMON KNOWLEDGE LIKE 'HE SAY, SO SHE SAY,'
but what's that got to do with the price of cold DJs?

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE DJ, WHAT DO YOU DO? I
bitch and I moan 'til the tracks come through.
EXACTLY...what do mean exactly?
YOU DID JUST WHAT YOU NEEDED TO BE HAPPY.

But I want change! ALRIGHT, I'LL GIVE YOU CHANGE.
Cool! YOU GOT A TWENTY?...no dude...
change my life! LIKE WHAT? Like where I'm stuck, like…
give me peace of mind. ALRIGHT, BUT NOW YOU GIVE A FUCK.

I want love and I want wealth,
I want drugs and I want health,
ALRIGHT, YOU WANT THEM…no, you literalist,
I CAN GIVE IT TO YOU, BUT WHAT YOU GON’ DO WITH IT?

I’d be happy. IT’S YOUR’S. I want more! THEN GO
GET IT. No! Just gimme! I'M ALWAYS GIVING IT FREELY
Well, why can't I get it? YOU CAN, (AND ARE) YOU'RE STILL HEALING. From
what? FROM BLAMING YOURSELF AND ME FOR YOUR NEEDING.

What's that supposed to mean? LOOK, YOU'RE HURTING. SOME-
WHERE ALONG THE LINE, YOU STRAYED AND STARTED SWERVING, AND
WHEREAS YOU MAKE THE CLAIM, YOU'VE SINNED AND AREN'T WORTHY,
I CONSIDER ALL THOSE ‘LESS THAN PERFECT’ MOVES 'LEARNING.'

Who hasn't messed up? YES I CONCUR,
and who hasn't cursed you God? FOR SURE. I
wish I wouldn't have done a lot of things that I did, but
how am I supposed to be rid of 'em. JUST FORGIVE.

FORGIVE YOU, THEN FORGIVE MOM, THEN
FORGIVE YOUR LOVER, YOUR BROTHERS AND YOUR DOG,
FORGIVE THE WEAK, THE MEAN AND EVEN THE STRONG, THEN
ONCE YOU'RE CLEAN WITH EVERYONE, FORGIVE GOD.

You? Forgive you God? Oh come on…
you're the sun and the stars and everything beyond.
What kind of audacity would I have a right to be on...
I MADE EVERYTHING, THAT INCLUDES the RIGHT AND the WRONG,

UNTIL YOU REALIZE THERE'S NEITHER, THERE'S JUST ETHER.
ONLY THINKING MAKES IT EITHER...TRUST ME SIR.
FORGIVE IT ALL BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING TO FORGIVE,
ALL YOU'RE DOING IS USING YOUR WITS TO FOLLOW YOUR BLISS.

AND ALL OF THIS IS FOR THE GOOD OF ALL, NOT THE
GOOD OPPOSITE OF EVIL, BUT WHAT WOULD BEFALL,
ALL LIFE AS IT EVOLVES, FROM YOUR FIRST CRAWL,
TO YOUR FIRST PLAY WITH A BALL, TO YOUR FIRST DAY AT THE MALL.

So this is entertainment to you? IT'S ONLY LOVE,
HOLY LOVE, SOLELY LOVE, but I'm so lonely Love,
YOU'RE NEVER ALONE, YOU'RE FOREVER MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE,
well, I wish it was easier, just because...OH JUST SHUT UP!

What?

JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND BE HAPPY!
