Recording of this song was shown at the end of the video "Hardly Working", prior to the initial release of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum.
Marvin walked into a hapless land and wondered lightly am I happy, is this happy Following the footsteps left by man he stepped to reprimand the mystic, who's sadistic Took a step into the elevator who said guess I'll see you later, don't you worry Fifteen flights that lasted nights and days that spent without a cent for creatures, with their beat shirts Listening to painted whispered light on top forgotten hill Next the stranded senate of the white brick house with flowers asked some questions for their story All feeling now he took his bow and left the stage of time with no answers to no questions Lonely paperbacks that wanted just a taste of feeling to implode them before living Tiptoed to that wooden sign that said now take your place in line for happy, this is lovely Listening to painted whispered light on top forgotten hill One secondary smile To go that extra mile To make me feel today To make it go away The chemistry is gone Taken for a ride Far away from you No longer left inside The actor with his world renowned was thinking 'bout his last real day of silence, was it over Or is it just we all think that our answer isn't real its just a picture of a letter Bumble mumble make the rounds no matter what you'll seem profound it's useless just to worry Something normal happens somewhere far away in clouds so please stop thinking this is happy Listening to painted whispered light on top forgotten hill One secondary smile To go that extra mile To make me feel today To make it go away The chemistry is gone Taken for a ride Far away from you No longer left inside One secondary smile To go that extra mile To make me feel today To make it go away The chemistry is gone Taken for a ride Far away from you No longer left inside There're no secrets in the door Just a moment doing chores (Don't look so sad) And there's something And there's something And there's something And there's something next to nothing And there's something And there's something But you're gone
