"Good News" as written by and Michelle Shocked....
She's trapped inside her room
With reruns on the screen
Old books and movies
But she can't stop thinking
I'm torn between myself
My radio my friends
I want to write this one off over and over again
And then she looked at me to scream
"My castles are falling"
But I can't look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

She waits all day
She stands a stranger in her skin
She moves the science with her hands
She lines her walls
With every paper she can see
These words consume her
But they never set her free

And then she looked at me to scream
"My castles are falling"
But I can't look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

I want to read good news
I want to be a little kid again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening
I want to read good news
I want to go to sleep at night again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

    General Commentlove this song! definitely explains something everyone has to go through... it hurts, when you realize that seeing the best in people is seeing something that isn't there...

    General CommentI agree with Punkchica (so YOU took my first choice of a name -.- ....its aiight) and Concept....well i have a problem downloading some SoCo songs...like I want to Save You, If I die and a few others, its just the looped verision...some reason, i think its because they're on Leaving through the Window...even though i dont have any logic for that....
    But i agree with Punk and the part about never getting set free is how i feel when i write now, its like whatever i say is just a word off and it screws the meaning around...yah know?

    General Commenti noticed the 911 thing too, maybe he heard the news on the radio and got all torn up, and worried about his friends. but its a great song regardless, its like how you feel like theres nothing good in the world, and its all bad. i could really relate to it a coupla months back i went thru a spell of thinkin evryone is bad and that theres never gonna be any good news. But i guess its called growing up and learning to deal and be happy with whatever you've got.
    Wow, deep :S
