Happier Stoned

A bad day turned out to be fine
An old flame turned out to be my best friend
I never knew what the nectar could bring
I didn't want it to end

The Captain's by my side
The seas are calm and bright
I'm in control
But I'm happier stoned

Just a buzz to help me see what's there
Hidden between the lines
Such a world with its death and despair
But only dealt to the blind

Am I happy?
Sure am, man
Til the buzz decides to die

Then back to life
With its dreary schedule
And it's all empty at best

I can't understand the public's mind
Abstinence leaves us with lust
If we just let ourselves go for even a night
We'd all get swept by the gust
Hell, and it ain't so bad
