Kid Cudi - Pursuit of Happiness
Crush a bit, little bit, roll it up, take a hit
Feelin’ lit feelin’ light, 2 am summer night.
I don't care, hand on the wheel, drivin drunk, I'm doin’ my thing
Rollin the Midwest side and out livin’ my life getting’ out dreams
People told me slow my roll I'm screaming out fuck that
Imma do just what I want lookin’ ahead no turnin’ back
if I fall if I die know I lived it to the fullest
if I fall if I die know I lived and missed some bullets

I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold
I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good.

Tell me what you know about dreamin’ dreamin’
you don't really know about nothin’ nothin’
tell me what you know about them night terrors every night
5 am, cold sweats wakin’ up to the skies
tell me what you know about dreams, dreams
tell me what you know about night terrors, nothin’
you don't really care about the trials of tomorrow
rather lay awake in a bed full of sorrow

I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shines ain't always gonna be gold
I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

I'm on the pursuit of happiness.
I know everything that shines ain't always gold
I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be good

I'm on the pursuit of happiness
And I know everything that shines ain't always gonna be gold, hey
I'll be fine once I get it, yeah
I'll be good

Pursuit of happiness, yeah
I don’t get it, I’ll be good


I'm no longer an angry teenage upperclass white kid. I don't have the anger I once did that groups like Metallica expressed so well. I don't have the same angst and frustration towards faith that Maynard propounds so frequently. I love all of those bands, and their music was a huge part of my life growing up, but I just don't relate anymore.

Kid Cudi especially with Pursuit of Happiness embodies how I felt in college and today (partially). The lyrics seem to find a balance between, shit sucks and party hard, which is rare. I like that he expresses the duality of that lifestyle. The guy who is super popular, goes out and has fun, but comes home and still battles his own demons. and he does all that while making a catchy fucking sweet song.
