`Everyone Wants Happiness


Everyone wants happiness
But friend do you share
A little kindness
I see it in your eyes
Every time you pass me by
The self contentment
Of devilish ill gotten wealth
The painless smile of hell's certainty
A fair share of impending posterity

So everyone wants happiness
But brother do you ever care a little sadness.
