"Good to Go" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
A low riding junkie girl
Rode down south to yr little world like a dream
You can do it if you want to
You can do it if you want to

You can do it if you want to be like me
I wouldn't need a hero if I wasn't such a zero
If I wasn't such a zero
Good to go

All I ever see around here is things of hers that you left lying around
It's all I ever see around here
She kicked new york like a curse
And you traced her footsteps in reverse up to queens

You can do it if you want to
You can do it if you want to
You can do it if you want to be like me
I wouldn't need a hero if I wasn't such a zero

If I wasn't such a zero
Good to go
All I ever see around here is things of hers that you left lying around
It's all I ever see around here

Some empty envelopes from some other town
It's all I ever see around here
I'm waiting for something that's not coming

    General CommentThis song is one of his best vocally... The symbolism is excellent. Sounds like it's about not knowing when to let go of someone and let the memory of them gradually decline.

    My InterpretationIt seems it's popular to think all Elliott was ever thinking about was drugs and all his songs are about drugs but thats just so wrong.
    This song is pretty obviously about his longing for a girl he liked that left town, possibly someone elses girlfriend/friend, note the -"Things of her you left lying around"- and -"empty letter from another town"-.... And Elliott could go after her if he wanted to, he's -"Good to Go"- but he decides to play it safe -"if i wasnt such a zero"-

    General Commentsomeone he was with whom he never really knew, i guess she haunts his memories, shes someone who he thinks might have the answers he's looking for but kind of faded away and left. he wonders if she was the person he imagined.

    General Commentelliott's been quoted in an interview as saying that when he uses the phrase "good to go" or "ready to go" he's talking about being ready to walk out on his life (yes, the s word).

    General CommentThis is probally wrong, but i have a feeling that it was the way he was feeling because of his fans, there trying to be like him, but he thinks that is a bad thing to try to do, because in his mind, he was a bad person...
    idk, just a guess
