Misery
Madness Lyrics


Misery loves company
That's what the wise man said
Don't come to me for sympathy
If you can't raise your head
Stand up and see
What your life could be
If you wore a smile instead
If you keep misery as your company
Then you might as well be dead
Why don't you go suck on a silver spoon
Buy a spaceship and fly over the moon
See the colours in the flowers and the tree's
Take a lesson from the birds and the bee's
Why don't you go skipping out in the park
Give yourself a chance to make a new start
Try and focus on your health and your heart
Accept the present and let go of the past

Misery loves company
That's what the wise man said
The remedy to be happy
Well it's all inside your head
Shift infinitesimally your perception and see
Your life could be better led
Don't keep misery as your company
Or you might as well be dead

Why don't you go suck on a silver spoon
Buy a spaceship and fly over the moon
See the colours in the flowers and the tree's
Take a lesson from the birds and the bee's
Why don't you go skipping out in the park
Give yourself a chance to make a new start
Try and focus on your health and your heart
Accept the present and let go of the past
Don't come to me for sympathy
If you can't raise your head
Stand up and see what your life could be
If you wore a smile instead
If you keep misery for company then you
Might as well be dead.

Had a pretty rough week after coming out of a relationship. This song really spoke to me, and has given me the small kick up the arse that I needed!
