In concert this song is played longer than the studio version, with a more psychedelic arrangement, in contrast to the electronica-tinged studio version. The concert version prominently features Jon Foreman screaming into the resonating chamber of his guitar, which distorts the screams to an eerie effect. During the Nothing Is Sound Tour "This is Your Life" often segued directly into "Happy Is a Yuppie Word". This combination was also played during a few performances of the Oh! Gravity. Spring Tour, one of which was notably captured on the band's official bootleg for the 21 February 2007 show in Calgary.
