Happy? Lyrics

In this hole
That is me
The dead are rolling over
In this hole
Thickening
Dirt shoveled over shoulders

I feel it in me
So overwhelmed
Oh, this pressured center rising
My life overturned
Unfair the despair
All these scars keep ripping...

    I don’t know what it is but reading through the lyrics of this song it always makes me think about abandonment, especially the line “ does it make you happy? now that I’m lost left with nothing” and I’ve read that he wrote this song when he was going through a divorce so idk it’s just a thought coming from a 14 year old metal lover

    I hear him directly addressing the listener.

    Are you happy now after everything you've done to yourself?

    I remember loving this song when it came out but I was too young to understand it. Mid to late twenties now and I know that most people consider this a heart break song but I actually didn't connect to this song feeling that. I've been in school taking 7 years to get my associates degree all while trying to figure myself out. I got my degree and now I'm going to get my bachelor's degree realizing that I have to spend 3 more years in school. 10 years to get my bachelor's degree and realizing that it shouldn't take that long and haven't been able to move far in life. Still broke as fuck, barely enough money left over from rent leaving me 400 dollars to get by every month. I never wanted to go to school after I graduated from high school but I had no choice because of my parents. The term "happy" in this song connected to me because I'm here where I'm at to please my parents instead of myself. I'm so far in now that I can't drop out because I don't want to make minimum wage and I can't just up and leave because I have no stable job to get me by in life other than these small part time jobs.

    Actually this song is about Ryan and his wife going threw a divorce and he wrote this song soon after it happened. Asking her if she was happy.

    My interpretation is that Chad, Mudvayne's singer, has had a lot of problems in his life (like all of us, let's be honest) and he just explains his suffering in this one. I do agree with the other post, too, that it's mainly, if not completely, about his childhood. It's just a great song, aswell. I really hope Mudvayne gets back together. Alright, y'all, take it easy.

    the song represents the abuse that people are given durring their childhood by friends family or a person they care about who dosent care back

    He's being betrayed constantly and he's asking if the person who did it is happy with themselves now.
