"Goodfellas" as written by Joseph Nelson, Jeffrey Nelson, Nicholas Robert Scarberry, Kevin Stafford and Bryan Cash....
Every day is a nightmare
With every night there lies a dream


These faces are fading away with every word
Every word you say
Now what is it that you really want?
That you're looking for?
Bow down and pray
Never to obey
What's the question?
What's the answer?
It can't save you


They want power, we want respect


Live by your own words and your own dreams
Never break this oath
Don't let them tell you what to do
Never how to think
Now what is it that you really want?
That you're looking for?
Now you know the question and you know the answer
You get what you fucking deserve


They want power, we want respect


Make the best of what you've got
Make the best of what you are

    General CommentThis song is my favorite off the album, it's awesome. They should sing all their songs in the style they sing the line "Every day is a nightmare." I like deeper voices.

    General Commentehh, i get the idea that their saying you spend your whole life believing in something that doesn't exist because others force it onto you, and in the end, you get what you deserve.

    General CommentI like to thing this song is simply about conformity.
    Ppl telling you what to do and be,
    When you should what you want and not what the fad is.
