(Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
It seems to me there's something serious beginning
A new approach found to the meaning of life
Deny that happiness is open as an option
And disappointment disappears over night

Say that love is an impossible dream
Face the facts, that's what it's always been
Relax, what you see is what you've seen
What you get, is a new philosophy

(That's what you got, that's what you get)
(That's what you got, that's what you get)

Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't

Meanwhile your life is still directed as a drama
With realism on the sparsest of sets
Every performance tends to reach the same conclusion
No happy endings but a message to depress
Saying life is an impossible scheme
That's the point of this philosophy

Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't

But if is wasn't, and isn't were
You can't be sure, but you might find ecstasy

(Oh no)

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning
(get get get)
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth
You know, life is an impossible scheme
And love an imperceptible dream

(That's what you got, that's what you get)
(That's what you got, that's what you get)

Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
Miserable
