The world's so sad, bros. Pain, genocide, war, sexism, racism.
But I've gotta remember there's good things about it too.
Like the fact that none of that's happening to me! Score! Still,

been telling you guys terribly sad things this whole song; you
haven't been sad at all. You've been--you've been happy--no,
you've been laughing. That's it, laughter, it's the key to everything.

an insensitive prick capitalizing on the most animalistic impulses
of the public; it's being a hero. The world isn't sad. The world's

Hello joke[C]s. [F] [C/G] [Em] [C]
