Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Flaming Lips

Check out the index.

Zaireeka album at
Flaming Lips', "Evil Will Prevail"
The Lyrics:
The whole song has depressing lyrics, but the first few lines are: "With loving hands/And their arms are stretched so wide/They can't seem to take a breath/Knowing evil will prevail." And the very last line is "Evil will always win."
You have to listen to hear the lovely, joyful innocence of the melody and vocals. It's a fabulously ironic song. And it's just a plain great song, too.
