All I want in life is to be happy (happy)

It seems funny to me
How fucked things can be
Everytime I get ahead
I feel more dead

    General CommentIt's funny how Jon can sum up life in 5 lines. I agree with dpf as well, they do know how to start an album (but untouchables is a little iffy to me). Strange but great song. Rock On!

    General CommentI thought the lyric was "Everytime I get head" as in summat to do with groupies and how they just want to have sex with you cos you're famous

    General CommentI think that it says "every time i get head" because a lot of the CD "Issues" is themed around sex... but both versions work.

    General CommentIts quite easy to relate to this song. Its about everytime you get ahead ( your life just flows, and all is well ) some fucked up shit comes in your way, everything falls to pieces, and you end up feeling dead.

    General CommentI just think it was the perfect song to start the album with...they are the best at being able to pick the intro song. "Blind" "Twist" "It's On" "Dead"..."Here to Stay" is ok...but...you get the point.
