"Happiness For Dogs" as written by and Sarsevic M. Farm....
I think I've been wrong in this family affair
It's been too long that we got used
to everything unfair
I'm out there trying to put on the charms
But inside I'm crying
when I remember how you cut your arms

Here comes happiness for dogs like us
And I just hope its gonna last
The drugs they give you
are something I don't trust
At least when the side effects come fast
Just like in the past

Everyone is not stable
we all got our ups and downs
They gave you a label
and pills to make you drowse
I do not trust them coz I've seen you fall
what's there to discuss
when you almost lost the will to live at all

Here comes happiness for dogs like us
And I just hope its gonna last
The drugs they give you
are something I don't trust
At least when the side effects come fast
Just like in the past

Almost twenty years of fighting
for your health not too exiting
And I know there's so much more that I could do
But you just never give up,
hope that one day you will live up
And regain what belongs to nobody else but you

    General Commentthis song has a personal meaning for me
    the cutting you arms... the pills... the label... it's all been done to me

    General CommentI'm almost positive that this song is about the singers brother who is mentally disabled. He's been missing for like 20 some odd days at this point. They cancled there final leg of the U.S. Home From Home tour to go search for him in Sweden. It sucks.

    General CommentMillencolin are one of my favourite bands. I think this song has a lot of depth and meaning, it must be about a friend, who was really ill, and about how he watched what they went through, and how hard, and how sad it was. It's a good song.

    General CommentIt's clear to me that this song is obviously, as said before, about his brother or at least it seems clear to me that it is. For me, it has some other meaning, too. I really love how he sings about "when I remember how you cut your arms"... This is something I'm quite familiar with. for me it is also about someone who is really fucked up because on one side he takes drugs and on the other side he is really depressive and self-destructive, e.g. the cuts on the arm. It is also about the singer's knowledge that the person spoken about could be so much more than this if he or she just recovered again, both physically and psychically. And I think it really is this way: If you feel like shit all the time, and if you feel worthless, you can't be what you might be if you were 'healthy' and if you also take drugs it's a never-ending vicious circle. by the way, drugs could also be medicine given to you in case of depression, like anti-depressants such as Lithium.
