Our Lady Peace
's third album, released September 28, 1999
. This album shows much maturity in sound and lyrics, sometimes lacking in the band's earlier work. The album cover is very distinctive, featuring a well dressed man with a bowler
-style hat clutching a large red fish. Familiar OLP
tones of loneliness
, and general angst
are mixed with slightly hopeful sounds in the song Thief
and others. Happiness's singles include One Man Army
, Is Anybody Home?
The song Happiness & the Fish, encompases the general theme of the album when it neatly sums up the futility of self-exploration and/or self-medication with "I confess/Everyone is overweight and I'm obsessed/Talking is just masturbating without the mess/Addiction leaves you sad today and unimpressed." Happiness then is not only unattainable but boring, so why bother?
