"Bleeding Heart Disease" as written by and Mike Burkett....
How money polluted my mind
Dough, what our lives are lived for
Rae, just a crazy Aussie
Me, the generation forges on
Fo, dder for corporations
Sew, wing our lives together
LA, such a nice place to get shot

But don't forget the T it
Follows liber in the Constitution
Following the part about pursuit
Of happiness the bi product
Of colonial precious metal
Mine extracts which
Brings us back
To dough

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

Today I saw a kid
Torture a cat
Too much leisure
Teenage Norman Rockwell
Paints it black!

How, did the chain get started
Mo, re is what everyone wants
Ney, dy is what none of us are
Co, operation died last night
Rup, tured bleeding heart forsight
Me, I'm just a loo

So don't expect the best you won't be disappointed when you take
A bite and watch the worm crawl back inside. listen to the
Fairy tales of million dollar happiness,
Los Angelistic lifestyle drinking
Chardonnay over a lobster salad brunch

Do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do

The pursuit of million dollar happiness

Happiness was killed we watched it bleed, some say it died from hate
Some say from bleeding heart disease

    General Commentyeah pretty awesome how they did this song, do-re-mi style too. That man speaks the truth with he says `more is what everyone wants, needy is what none of us are`

    its about how everything is money related, and everyone seems to only want one thing in life these days because its jammed down everybodies throats that money makes all of lifes problems go away.

    General CommentThe line "listen to the fairy tales of million dollar happiness"

    is actually "don't believe the fairy tales of million dollar happiness"

    Not the only mistake in the lyrics listed here, but it's a pretty significant one considering the difference in meaning.

    Pretty sure they are referring to Ray from the hard ons who was known for crazy shows and antics.

    General CommentThis song is about how we all think money will make us happy, but that it really won't and it is all an illusion. It is also about how corporations restrict our liberty and everything in life is controled by money. All that in just one song and all of it connected to each other.

    General CommentI love it how this song has hidden stuff in the lyrics. Next to the do-re-mi thing, which is pretty obivous, there's also:

    How did the chain get started
    More is what everyone wants
    Neydy is what none of us are
    Cooperation died last night
    Ruptured bleeding heart foresight
    Me, I'm just a loo

    First words spelling out "How mo-ney co-rupted me".

    Awesome.
