Synthesised Happiness

from by Death In Texas



It’s a game, she plays herself
She’s got one of everything
But it eats her up inside to
Know she never has

It’s a game he plays to feel
Something, anything that’s real
Cuts and long-sleeves
Laboured heartbeats
Soaking in his sorrow

It’s a game we play to freak
Out with what we should’ve done
In each circumstance another
Path we wish we’d taken

In a game we know is play
We believe it anyway
Breaking rules we made so fragile
Lost and found control

It’s the curse of our age to be unhappy
Our biggest fights against ourselves
With no enemies our thirst prevails
To synthesise the joy we hope
Somewhere, someone has
