"Stealing Happy Hours" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum....
Massive laminate fortress
Hazy cannibus porches
Saying no to the bores
It's not mine or yours, then I said
The wait sucks, I don't mind waiting
Once you get there, there's no more gates
And I gotta say

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah

Don't wait one minute more to ask me
You make me feel like Hank Chinaski
In war all the time, war, war all the time
We're snatching bits of time that
No one else can seem to find

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah

    General CommentMyself (vocals), my bros(guitar), and my drummer with another friend on guitar, all played this song high as a kite one night over spring break with blacklights surrounding us, and incents lit all over the place. It took me to another plane that noone can reach except me. When i got there i found those happy hours.

    General CommentThis is easily one of 311's best songs. I think it is far overlooked because a) it's off of Transistor and b) it's the last track on the album. It's so smooth.

    General Commentat the end of the song is recordings of sounds from outter space that categorize as unnatural, meaning somehting intellegent was making it happen. if you wanna help search for more go to setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/…
