Darren Hanlon - Happiness is a Chemical


    On the glass that wraps the telephone box
    An impatient bystander knocks
    The receiver put back in it's place
    In that certain things should be said to the face
    I'm a believer

    You're stripped of all your worldly powers
    And staring at the opposite apartment block for hours
    You say that each window is a different TV channel
    And you'd surrender all your so-called friends for flowers

    And you'd rather be sleeping in the paddocks with the horses
    While the stars cross the skies on their prescribed courses
    Can you take me with you when you go?

    Because love is just a lazy generalization that we use for 100 feelings and as many situations going through each others pockets is not like us and flattery should get you somewhere and your happiness is just a chemical

    A constant feeling you're being watched
    All your good intentions so clumsily botched
    A kiss sent down the telephone line can come out sounding like a bug getting squashed

    And grasshoppers fling erratic parabolas
    While you're drowning ants with your can of cola
    Can you take me with you when you go?

    Because love is just a lazy generalization that we use for 100 different feelings and as many situations going through each others pockets is not like us and flattery should get you somewhere and your happiness is just a chemical

    Separate the parts and give them titles
    Lungs are for songs and eyes are for feasting
    And butter's for a bee sting
    Can somebody please check my vitals?

    Because love is just a lazy generalization that we use for 100 feelings and as many situations finding things in others' pockets isn't always a plus and that sensation that you felt off the back of the bus was just a chemical

    Happiness is just a chemical...
