Perfectly Happy

This song is by The Ataris and appears on the album ...Anywhere but Here (1997).

"Won't be another statistic
Won't be a minority
I'll achieve every goal I have
There's not a thing that I can't be
Just as long as I am happy,
That's all that matters to me

I'll walk away from this place
On that unhappy day that I have to follow rules
This so-called book you go by
Was written for a fool

Maybe now you understand
Life from my point of view
I've got my head on straight
But have no urge to be like you
Oh sure I strive for a better life
But is that so fucking wrong?

Change in my pocket,
Girl by my side, perfectly happy"
