Doing the Unstuck
The Cure

it's a perfect day for
letting go
for setting fire to bridges
boats and other
dreary worlds you know
let's get happy!

it's a perfect day
for making out
to wake up with a smile
without a doubt

to burst grin giggle bliss skip jump sing and shout
let's get happy!

"but it's much too late"
you say
"for doing this now
we should have done it then"
well it just goes to show
how wrong you can be
and how you really
should know
that it's never too late
to get up and go...

it's a perfect day
for kiss and swell
for rip-zipping button-popping kiss and well...
there's loads of other stuff
can make you yell
let's get happy!
it's a perfect day for
doing the unstuck
for dancing like you can't
hear the beat
and you don't give a further thought
to things like feet
let's get happy!

"but it's much too late"
you say
"for doing this now
we should have done it then"
well it just goes to show
how wrong you can be
and how you really should know
that it's never too late
to get up and go...

kick out the gloom
kick out the blues
tear out the pages with
all the bad news
pull down the mirrors
and pull down the walls
tear up the stairs and
tear up the floors
oh just burn down the house!
burn down the street!
turn everything red and
the beat is complete
with the sound of your world
going up in the fire
it's a perfect day to
throw back your head
and kiss it all goodbye!

it's a perfect day
for getting wild
forgetting all your worries
life
and everything that
makes you cry
let's get happy!
it's a perfect day for
dreams come true
for thinking big
and doing anything
you want to do
let's get happy!

"but it's much too late" you say
"for doing this now
we should have done it then"
well it just goes to show
how wrong you can be
and how you really should know
that it's never too late
to get up and go...

kick out the gloom
kick out the blues
tear out the pages with
all the bad news
pull down the mirrors
and pull down the walls
tear up the stairs and
tear up the floors
oh just burn down the house!
burn down the street!
turn everything red and
the dream is complete
with the sound of your world
going up in the fire
it's a perfect day to
throw back your head
and kiss it all goodbye!

The Cure   (Rock Band)

"a goth hit machine..., an international phenomenon and, yep, the most successful alternative band that ever shuffled disconsolately about the earth."

The Cure is "an English rock band that formed in ... 1976.  The band has experienced several lineup changes, with frontman, guitarist and main songwriter Robert Smith known for his iconic wild hair, pale complexion, smudged lipstick and frequently gloomy and introspective lyrics the only constant member."

"... they first started releasing music in the late 1970s. Their first album Three Imaginary Boys and early singles placed them as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre."

"The Cure's popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States, where the songs "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" and "Friday I'm in Love" entered the Billboard Top 40 charts. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world and have sold an estimated 27 million albums as of 2004. As of 2007, The Cure have released twelve studio albums and over thirty singles, with a thirteenth album in the works."

Genre: Post-punk, Gothic rock, Alternative rock, New Wave
