"Land of Sunshine" is the opening track to Angel Dust, the fourth studio album by American rock band Faith No More. It was released as a promo single in 1992 along with "Midlife Crisis" and has been compared in its opening style to "From out of Nowhere", the opening track and first single off the band's previous studio album The Real Thing. The songs lyrics contain, amongst other things, questions from Scientology personality tests, with one of them, the question "Does emotional music have quite an effect on you?", being described by Tom Sinclair of Rolling Stone as "the perfect tag line for Angel Dust". The song was also one of the three key songs picked out by Robert Christgau from the album in his review, the two others being "Midlife Crisis" and "Midnight Cowboy". Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

You have a winning way, so keep it

Your future

You are an angel heading for a land of sunshine

And fortune us smiling upon you

Prepare for a series of comfortable miracles

From fasting to feasting

And life to you is a dashing, bold adventure

So sing and rejoice

And look for the dream that keeps

Coming back

Your future

Pat yourself on the back and give yourself a handshake

Cuz everything is not yet lost

(does life seem worthwhile to you?)


Does life seem worthwhile to you?

Do others push you around?

Is age against you?

Sing and rejoice!

Does life seem worthwhile to you?

Does emotional music

Have quite an effect on you?

I-I can help

I can help you

I can help you help yourself!
