I'm Not Laughing About It - first demo ©1995

See that look of hate in your eyes
You think there will be a nuclear war; we'll all die
you gave up on life and don't even try.
one thing I wish money could buy...
an answer to the question why?
you laugh at someone else...laugh, laugh at yourself

Ah ah ha ah ha ha ha ha...ha ha
I'm laughing about it, I'm crying about it...
I'm dying...asking myself
why aye aye aye
why, When I'm in love with life
Why is all this hate in this world?

Combat boots and leather and spikes and chains.
Crazy nights going insane.
Pierced ears, pierced nose and punk rock clothes
Spiked hair Mohawk and cool hip talk
Hey where'd you get those clothes, at a thrift shop??
Yeah and I like em!
This is the life that I chose.

chorus repeats:

Cool, entertaining piece with a good message, and loaded with wit. Instrumentation and arrangement is just right for this piece. Really cool ending.

This song fun to listen too. It has a good message. I like the intro a lot. The vocals are very good. The tune and arrangement are good. The singing guitar in the background is neat.
