lyrics

In the car up the Riverside Drive
Past the waters where the boaters play
Past the exit for the last "skyrise"
Thought you'd touch those skies one day

At a dead stop for the G.W. Bridge
Not moving an inch; think you'll step out of the car

And wave your hands like you're conducting the band
And celebrate that you've broken the spell

Oh you've got a condo squared away in the Garden State
And you've got most of my debt partially paid

Are you happy? Are you hap-hap-hap-happy?
Yes, I'm hap-hap-hap-hap-happy enough

Soon you'll be walking on the kings' bones
Eating tacos in their thrones
While you read poems of their demise

Might as well stop to spook the pigeons
And watch them fly—and regain your spine

And wave your hands like you're conducting the band
And celebrate that you've broken the spell

Oh you've got 9 to 5 from here to the other side
A belly full and a blanket stretching out so wide

Are you happy? Are you hap-hap-hap-happy?
Yes, I'm hap-hap-hap-hap-happy enough

Sometimes the clutter bunches up
It fills my mind and beats me up
I try and try and keep things straight
But I digress and I am late
And everyone wonders why
I don't show up but how I try
And everyone wonders when
I might be coming round again
Sometimes the moments are too much
And I don't care if I screw up
But you've seen me
Put on my best face
But sometimes my best face isn't enough
Oh, you've seen me
Put my best foot forward
But sometimes my best foot isn't enough

Are you happy? Are you hap-hap-hap-happy?
Yes, I'm hap-hap-hap-hap-happy enough
