You waited your whole life for things to change
You held breath so long you've got nothin' to say to me

Goodbye, I got friends
And sometimes we just get high
So don't try to pretend, don't even try

You had what everyone wants, don't you know?
You just watched everything die and you let a good thing go

I've built a new life, made a brand new start
So shame on you, you selfish fool
You broke your own damn heart

Goodbye, I got friends
And somethings you can't deny
So don't try and defend, don't even try

'Cause you had what everyone wants, don't you know?
You just watched everything die, yeah you let a good thing go
You had what everyone wants, don't you know?
You just watched everything die, yeah you let a good thing go

Did you get what you want from me?
I've done things you can't believe
I'm not that person anymore
I'm so much different than before
You have no idea
You have no idea

You waited your whole life for things to change
You held your breath for so long you got nothin' to say to me

Goodbye, I got friends and sometimes we just get high
So don't try to defend, don't even try

You had what everyone wants, don't you know?
You just watched everything die, yeah you let a good thing go
You had what everyone wants, don't you know?
You just watched everything die, yeah you let a good thing go

    General CommentIt's "I get by, I got friends" not "Goodbye"

    Blair asserts that the band is not broken up, and that new material is forthcoming. Also, there has been no official website, myspace, or Militia Group announcement of the break up.

    The band did break up for a short period of time and Got Friends was just made up of old recordings that never made an actual album....BUT the band is now back together and have already started recording there new album. Blair needed some time to deal with some issues, but as of the new year has moved back to the west coast and has begun recording. More will be posted soon on there Myspace so STAY TUNED!
