Post Happy sounding music, with dark lyrics

I decided to make this interesting, post a song that you like it must have a happy sound to it, or upbeat but the lyrics to that particular song has to have a much darker tone - when you actually closely listen to the lyrics. Genre does not matter, rock, hip-hop etc..

I'll start:

Jump - Van Halen

"David Lee Roth has given various accounts of the meaning behind the lyrics, but he usually says they are about a TV news story he saw where a man was about to kill himself by jumping off a building (Roth thought, "Might as well jump")."

I'll play Jebizz. I already posted it. But it is Upbeat as all get out but the lyrics are a hoot.

F the FCC - Steve Earle

Not sure if the lyrics of this song can be called dark exactly (rather depressing, maybe), but here it goes:

Pulp - Mile End

Depressing is also a good category, basically the song has to sound happier than it actually is. The lyrics can range from just sad, from depressing, to just outright dark and disturbing.

Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks.


Also again, it can be any genre not preferring only rock music or folk.

--edit

I guess I should be even more specific, the last song I posted is rather obvious, but the songs posted DON'T have to be that direct either, euphemistic or symbolic meanings are also acceptable. The song doesn't have to be so obvious.

Depends on the job. The boss. Your own priorities. I never let my job get in the way of a good time.

Oooops.
I fibbed.

Wait!

USMC don't count. They lock you up if you walk off to go party. AWOL. Not the band either.

You've probably heard these on the radio:

OneRepublic - Counting Stars
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT_nvWreIhg

OneRepublic - Love Runs Out
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OWj0CiM8WU

OneRepublic - All The Right Moves
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrOeGCJdZe4
This last one may qualify for Jeebizz's contest.
