We Have To Laugh

about

Another song featuring our friend Scott Haumesser. It's lurked in the archive for too long, so fly free little song!

lyrics

Trapped in traffic and a business suit
Air's running out, there's no room to move, and
All this idle time
Is preying on my mind
The shortcuts seem to take me twice as long
Decisions that I make all turn out wrong
Things fall through somehow
I'm never where I thought I would be by now, but

When I think about it I have to laugh
Good and bad, pleasure and pain
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane

No one seems to want to question why
We live and we work and we love and we die
So we bide our time in fear
Of answers we don't want to hear, and
Survival is the daily drug
Lets us sweep the big questions under the rug
No time for philosophy
While misery needs company, and

When I think about it I have to laugh
Nothing is fair and it won't ever change
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane

See the road up ahead choked with minivans
While I'm stuck in the back with my simple demands
I wrote a letter to my congressman
But he won't respond, I don't understand
Why nothing ever turns out the way I planned

My ex-girlfriends married millionaires
I'm flat broke but no one really cares
I ain't got a f#ckin'' dime
I can only afford to spend my time, and

When I think about it I have to laugh
Nothing is fair and it won't ever change
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing
I think I'll start crying
If I don't start laughing
I might just give up trying
If I don't start laughing I'll go insane
(ha ha ha ha)
