"Good Behavior" as written by and Tiffany Arbuckle Lee Matthew Bronleewe....
I was frozen in a fragile world
Of make believe and empty lies
Twisting the rules
Of a virtuous game

And captured by the thought of fear
And loneliness afraid to cry
Suffocating trying to scream

[Chorus]
Cause I wanted out
To find myself

Cause perfect only makes you crazy
There is no way that it could save me
I'm sick of feeling like a trader
Is this the price for good behavior?

Oh my naked skin
Feels the warmth of the sun
My eyes are open
To the brightness of life

I'm driven by a force so free
To live this life not paralyzed
But with reckless abandon
So now I can breath

[Chorus]

Don't do this
Don't do that
You will be
Out abandoned

Cause perfect only makes you crazy
There is no way that it could save me
I'm sick of feeling like a trader
Is this the price for good behavior?

    General CommentTo me, this song is about bing a people pleaser. She wants to do everything right and is in a position where she feels trapped, like she has to do everything right. Eventually, she got tired of being "puppet-like" and lost it. She knows that it's not what she truly believes or thinks but she can't be any different. She feels like a traitor to herself because she is being someone she's not to please others and therefore is betraying herself. In the second verse, "Oh my naked skin"... she begins to stop living the lie and becomes free by allowing herself to be who she really is.

    General Commento i love this song. she feels trapped in by the rules of Christianity. trust me, they can seem consticting sometimes if thats all they are to you: rules. the line "i'm sick of feeling like a traitor" is really powerful. she feels like shes betraying God and her parents or her fans or something when she messes up. shes sick of people trying to make her perfect.
