lyrics

My music was bad.
It made you feel sad.
Its simplistic style was all that it had.

But I soon arrived at a thought, self-described as noncircumventionally transcircumscribed.
Like a drastic designer, in one of my finer arrangements I switched all the majors and minors.
And just in one night, that removed all my plight, as all my song's wrongs were rewritten to right.

Are you happy now? Do I sound happy now? Are you happy how
I sound, now that I sound happy now?

No longer aware of all my despair, these chords and progressions felt lighter than air.
I floated through days in some sort of haze that bested the depressed kid of my young malaise.
But if things sound great, why can’t they abate all your apathy or at least placate your hate?
And who’s still inviting our nasty-ass fighting? These tones don’t look warm in this ghastly gaslighting.

Are you happy now? Do I sound happy now? Are you happy how
I sound, now that I sound happy now?

If I could never be just like you wanted me to be... well, I could leverage a spike in aural chemistry.

Are you happy now?
