"The Best Happiness Money Can Buy" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders Chris Badami....
Time goes by,
And we watch our lives,
As they're sadly slipping away.
Alone, we cry.

So follow that tune quickly
Or you'll lose the melody you never heard
When you were young you didn't care.
It's the one that stole your fathers pride,
That mighty mighty dollar sign.
These are the things that matter now,
So sing along and be

Prepared to jump,
When the ship has sunk,
And you're slowly watching it drown.
Alone, you cry.

So follow that tune quickly
Or you'll lose the melody you never heard
When you were young you didn't care.
It's the one that stole your fathers pride,
That mighty mighty dollar sign.
These are the things that matter now,
So sing along and be prepared.

Maybe we, care about too much
Time we lost in in spite we run,
That night, but you know I'm wrong.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song i think it means that you shouldn't dwell on the regrets in your life, you should just concentrate on what you have and not what you dont. Like material possesions.

    but im probably wrong? =/

    General CommentI think it's about growing up... and being prepared to live the life of a working person... and how we just keep working to try and ignore the past regrets of our lives.

    General CommentTime goes by,
    And we watch our lives,
    As they're sadly slipping away.
    Alone, we cry.
    This shows that a person is living their life without paying attention to whats going on and they're loosing grip of it's meaning. They feel alone, because they think their life has no meaning.

    So follow that tune quickly
    Or you'll lose the melody you never heard
    When you were young you didn't care.
    It's the one that stole your fathers pride,
    That mighty mighty dollar sign.
    These are the things that matter now,
    So sing along and be...
    This means that when you're young you can hear and see what the meaning of you're life is, but its ignored, because you're having too much fun being young. Ace is adviceing us to follow our path of life, or we'll become like the ones before us who have no meaning in their lives because they only wanted money.

    General CommentI just love the little "Yeeha" in the background of the second verse. It makes me smile.

    This song is quite I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning country/folk with its simplicity and the pedal steel in the background. And the sing-along chorus. And the faint rock and roll bass. Haha.

    Too bad it's so short, but I guess it's just a burst of brilliance.

    General Commentthe true importance and goal of life is lost with unnessissary reponsibility- work? money? reputation?

    crying for people that waste their life on wealth.

    just bring down the tempo and have as much fun as humanly possible!
