"Good Luck" as written by and Felix Buxton Simon Ratcliffe....
Well I've seen 22 years of life and I think I basically know what's going on as far as what life's not about
Well there's a cycle I won't be part of, but not because I don't think it's right
I must keep doing what I think I'm here for and not get buried in someone else's life
When I was younger, I didn't know life meant falling into place
Taking over a menial position that meant nothing to you in the first place
Getting older confused by friends they're 22 and almost done
I must have missed the grow up sign..I thought we were still having fun

So good luck with not forgetting who you are
Good luck even though it seems you have to
Good luck, finding your own place, not setting in where you're not happy
Good luck, remembering it's only life
Good luck, not following what you don't believe in
Good luck, seeing many problems are only a big deal if you make them

Everyone I met surrounds me every day in my head, it's a part of what makes me who I am
The attitude of my life
And now I turn around and see how somehow you made me feel
So nice to me just made me laugh at life when I couldn't deal
And I wanna be just like that, it's what I'll try and be, not held down by others 'cause now I can see, I'll make my life a place I like or I could just sit and blame for things not right,
What's to gain spending all of our life putting your friends down again and again

So good luck, being someone who can always help someone out
Good luck, in remembering how much you can affect someone else
Good luck with not being selfish
Good luck with not being alone
Good luck in this world we're all just trying to get along
Good luck with not getting caught up
Good luck with not getting stressed
Good luck with figuring things out
Good luck with doing your best
Good luck with not losing yourself
God luck for standing for what's right
Good luck for being happy when you sit to review your life

    General CommentI think it's a pretty straightforward message..

    To me this song means that YOU are the sole person in charge of how your life goes. You determine your own destiny and get only one shot at it..

    Be good to the ones you love and don't give up on what you believe no matter what happens.

    General CommentI agree with that for the most part except i think it maybe be more personal to the write (david i assume?) big d and the kids table are a great band.. but they went through lots of rough times and spent some times bumming off friends and living in friends' houses.. i think.. i may have gotten my information messed up.. but i know they definitly dont live the lives of rockstars and they are just normal people. but david probably looks around at his friends... who at age 22 are finishing up college and getting a set plan for life.. and he may have been confused as to whether he was making the right decision doing he something he loves (playing in a band)
    "When I was younger, I didn't know life meant falling into place
    Taking over a menuel position that meant nothing to you in the first place"
    in this song he seems to argue both sides of the points of doing what you love or doing what is best for you financially and such... which shows that at the time he may have been confused about his decision.
    "Well there's a cycle I won't be part of, but not because I don't think it's right"
    he doesnt want to insult anyone who may have chosen the life because he himself is not sure what is right and wrong.
    he just wants to send the message that think about your life dont get caught up in it and end up doing somethin gyou hate just because people persuade you do.. do what you love even if it means going against the norms.
    then he lists all the "good lucks" which all describe the ideal life for someone.. and he is wishing you luck and hopes you can achieve all of these goals.

    General CommentIt's actually pretty great how well he puts everything. It's not that going to college is evil and dumb, it's that selling out and doing things you don't want to and don't beleive in is. Find your place, where you belong and are welcome. Where you can care for others and be cared for. Reminds me of find out kinda too.
