So far things have been alright
No complaints, oh this is the good life
But sometimes I need more
Just to get up and out the door

I like to live in an altered state
It makes me love all the things I hate
And I'm happy to be alive
Don't want to come off too straight
I like to put on my happy face
While I cry on the inside

Is it so hard to be happy
That I struggle to feel just ok
And I need a lift just to get through
Just to get up to normal with you

I like to live in an altered state
It makes me love all the things I hate
And I'm happy to be alive
Don't want to come off too straight laced
I like to put on my happy face
While I cry on the inside

Yeah sometimes I need more
Just to get up off the floor

I like to live in an altered state
It makes me love the things I hate
And I'm happy to be alive
Don't want to come off too straight laced
I like to put on my happy face
While I cry on the inside
