"Is This Happiness?" as written by Elizabeth Grant, Tim Elliott Larcombe and James Lawrence Irvin....
High up in the Hollywood Hills taking violet pills
Writing all of my songs about my cheap thrills
You're a hard man to love and I'm
A hard woman to keep track of
You like to rage, don't do that
You want your way, you make me so mad
Got your gun, I've got my dad

Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?

High up in the Hollywood Hills crushing violet pills
You've been trying to write a novel about your cheap thrills
You think you're Hunter S. Thompson
I think you're fucking crazy as the day's long
Man-to-man, heart to-heart
I love you but you drive me so far
Wish you well on that star

Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?

Witch Hazel, Witch Hazel
Betrayal, betrayal
One gun on the table
Headshot if you're able

Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?
Is this happiness?

Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm
Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm

    My InterpretationI think this song is talking about the end of a relationship or the point in a relationship when you're ready to move on, but will always love this person who you are leaving behind. She's saying that's she's been around the block, did her thing, and the man she's with isn't making her happy anymore. He's a hard man to love, he gets angry and rages, he's "crazy" and she herself is a hard person to keep up with.

    She knows that they can no longer be together because they both no longer bring each other happiness, but she wishes him well.
