Every family starts off as a good idea
to find happiness
Then we get older and we realize the little things
that we may have missed when we were young

I met your father, he's bi-polar, but that just doesn't seem to bother you
I met your mother, she's suicidal, but nobody seems to care but me

I can't stop coughing, I let a thousand people down
When smoke that cigarette
And now we're walking to the store for a drink
Little do I know about what will happen next

I met your uncle the alcoholic who's always out of work
I met your brother, he's a chain-smoker, but he's only 13

I used to know a girl who's parent's called her a drug addict
I knew just how she felt, but I asked her anyway,
"Well, are you?"

Every family starts off as a good idea
to find happiness
Define, "happiness"
