True Happiness

Suddenly I hear this old song in the radio,
and it makes me wonder how luxury lost its luster.

(Cover from Dana Thomsons Book: Deluxe - how luxury lost its luster)

The lurics goes:
And have you ever wanted something so badly
that it possessed your body & your soul
through the night & through the day
until you finally get it!
And then you realize that it wasn't what you wanted after all.
And then those selfsame sickly little thoughts
now go & attach themselves to something....
....or somebody....new!
And the whole goddamn thing starts all over again.

The only true freedom is freedom from the heart's desires
& the only true happiness....this way lies.

(Song & lyrics: The The "Dusk" 1992. True Happiness this way Lies)


  1. Aaah, the The, my favourite band. There´s so much truth in the lyrics of this song!
