"Halcyon Days (Where Were You Then?)" as written by and Brian St. Clair David Scott Lucas....
Those halcyon days are here
They went away but they're back again
This glow never ends
I'm numbed out on bliss that comes on like a friend
And it's great

A fantastic waste of time
Life is long but it all moves so fast
You're first then you're last
Afraid of the future but I'm bored with the past

And it's great
Yea, it's great
It's so great
Remember when you wanted it all to end?

My last will and testament
Was full of things that I didn't really mean
I want to come clean
But these words are easier to write than to read
Or to say, my mood swings are severe
But halcyon days are here anyway
I'm held in your sway
The drug of you love has me slipping away

And it's great
Yea, it's great
It's so great
Remember when you wanted it all to end?

    This line sums up the whole song to me.

    General CommentWhat the fuck is the deal? I have tried to edit and fix the lyrics to this song and it wont let me. Anyways, the "I'm healthy this way" lyric should be "I'm caught in your sway."

    General CommentThe entire album is basically about how fleeting fame is (hence the PJ Soles title) and this song is the coda.

    It's a reminder that once upon a time, Local H were a big band with a big hit. Now, Scott & Brian have to fight to play any dinky bar they can get into. To feel like big shots, they have to take drugs and remember the good ol' days (at least Scott has to).

    And in retrospect, they'd rather be a one hit wonder than nobodies. All the prior sarcasm at the time just feels naive and wasteful in hindsight.

    "Remember when you wanted it all to end?"

    Kinda sad, huh.
