What price happiness, a price you can't afford
Still we purue this feeling as though it were the greatest reward they say that love's the only way to find true happiness
So why do we keep fighting for a life that makes no sense

How did the system of greed begin
In pursuit of happiness to fill a need within
They say there's nothing in this world that you can't buy
Yet the price of happiness is forever too high

What price, what price happiness?

What does this word happiness signify to you
Just a fleeting feeling well that's nothing new
Our lives are short death is certain
Don't think about that final curtain
You're happy for so short a time
Happiness treads a very fine line

What price, what price happiness?

For everyone that is happy there are a million that are sad
Poor, starving, fighting, dying for the elusive life we have!
