"Good Life" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Barry Stock....
The good life is what I need
Too many people stepping over me
The only thing that's been on my mind
Is the one thing I need before I die

All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
Oh
The good life
All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
The good life
(The good life)

I don't really know who I am
It's time for me to take a stand
I need a change and I need it fast
I know that any day could be the last

All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
The good life
All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
The good life

Hold on, hold on
I always wanted it this way
(You never wanted it this way)
Hold on, hold on
I always wanted this way
(You didn't ask for it this way)
I always wanted it this way

(The good life)
All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
The good life
All I want
Is a little of the good life
All I need
Is to have a good time
The good life
(The good life)

    General CommentThis song is pretty obvious, like a "my life sucks, I want the Good Life". I find this song great for listening to when you just don't give a S**t anymore and need some motivation to do better.

    This is my favorite song on the Album, and it kicked A** in concert!

    General Commentits about getting ahead. youve been stepped on and dont know if you what you really want. you just want happiness. however, when you get what you want (I always wanted it this way) you sort of think what if and then say (You never wanted it this way). then you say you want it that new way but, (You didn't ask for it this way). so you dont get it and you want the new good life now. so its more about wanting more and then want something else and sort of wanting a little of everything but you find out you cant get everything. but you still want it anyway.

    General CommentThese lyrics are incredible. See, now I feel last and wish I had a piece of the good life because this just tears me down. I had dreams of being a poet one day but now?.....I should just get real.

    General Commentso yea, i don't think there's any secret meaning to this, it's about a person who's done trying to please everyone else, and wants to make himself happy, give hinself a piece of the good life.
