You used to be a morning person
Now you need a cigarette
But that's all right 'cos the type of guy you are, you harbor no regrets
But now you're feeling just a little defeated
Feeling just a little low
Thinking back to the times when it felt fine to feel out of control

Let's do something stupid like we used to
Burn the candle like when we were young
Before you go to the dark side
Remember what you said that night
Don't crack just yet
My good associate

You used to have a Christian outlook
You used to see the glass half-full
You didn't mind when old Fortuna dropped a bomb on you
But now you're feeling just a little depleted
Feeling like you're getting old
Thinking back to the times when it felt fine to feel out of control

Let's do something stupid like we used to
Come on play the game, it isn't done
Before you go the dark side
Remember what you said that night
Don't crack just yet
My good associate

Before you go the dark side
Remember what you said that night

Let's do something stupid like we used to
Let's get high and scream "What's going on?"
Before you go to the dark side
Remember what you said that night
Don't crack just yet
My good associate

    General CommentKind of a depressing song to begin with; "Good Associate" seems to be about a person who has let the negative side of life begin to overcome him or her. His or her optimism is gone, and all that's left is a nihilistic outlook.

    General CommentI disagree. I think that this song is about a guy who was, "18 and bulletproof" in college, the kind of guy who would go out partying all night and still manage to "be a morning person". Now, he's out of college and having to deal with a steady job that too demanding for him to keep up the lifestyle he used to have, and his friend (the speaker in this song) is urging him not to let go of his youth so easily.
