“I originally wrote ‘Happy’ to perform at Coachella 2020,” Elfman said in a statement. “It was written to be an absurd anti-pop song, designed to begin as a very simple pop tune that degrades into something more subversive. The cynical nature of the lyrics echo how I feel about living in a semi-dystopian world turned upside down.”
EAT (Eat) - FLY (Fly) - SILENCE (Silence) - JOY (Joy) CAT (Cat) - SEQUENCE (Sequence) - FUTURE (Future) - PUPPY (Mother fucking puppy) MY (My) - OWN (Own) - MOTHER (Mother) - FUCKING (Mother fucking) LIFE - BURNED DOWN LIKE A HOLE IN THE WARM SOFT GROUND
HOUSE - CHILD - HAPPY - FEAR Of my — own — voice Concentrating on flies Fill me up - knock me down Take my hand, in my hand, and my eloquent knife Through my heart — through my heart Straight through my mother — mother fucking
Heart belongs to you - My Heart belongs to you..
Puppy, Puppy, Puppy, Puppy.
Eyes for an eye, eye for an eye — Tickety-tackety, tickety-tackety
Eye for an eye, Tooth for a tooth — It’s never enough, but it’s never the truth Life is a treat so pretty and pink.
Youth is wasted on the mother, Youth is, youth is wasted on the mother, Youth is wasted on the mother fucking, Wasted on the mother fucking youth.
I’m so happy — Happy! I’m so happy — Happy!

My anesthesiologist is fucking my psychiatrist And I feel no pain- cover me with Lidocane I'm so happy everything's so great And the world is an oyster on an appetizer plate.
I'm not a huge fan, but I utterly adore the fact that Elfman has this sort of thing in him. Diversity is something I've been giving a lot of thought to lately when it comes to composers working today, and Danny's got bucket loads. We don't always have to like it, but I love that it's all there.
I was very pleasantly surprised to see it's Stu Brooks on Bass. Great player, I toured with him about 10 years ago. Not at all jealous that he's working with Danny. Not one bit
It's great mish-mash of Elfmanisms - a little bit of NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, a little bit of Philip Glass-ian minimalism and a little bit of punkish New Wave, Boingo-style. Love the dark, industrial synth beat too.
