Track Name: Good Boy Now (Unreleased Demo)
I used to drink scotch out of a dead man's shoe
I used to sink my teeth right into you
Now l'm a sheep in a fake wolfskin
Got nothin' to lose, nothin' to win

I once was a badass, no one messed with me
I used to play the field for everybody to see
Those days are over, the thrill has gone
All I want is to be left alone

I'm a good boy now
Don't know how it happened but
I'm a good boy now

I used to do drugs and drink and smoke
clinging on to a burning rope
And if you asked me then I would’ve done it again
I'd stick a needle right into my brain

But I'm a good boy now
Don't know why, don't know how,
Yes I'm a good boy now

All I want is to live on the open road
Want to shed the city's heavy load
I want the country to be my friend
Want to roam free until the end
I want to go back to where I once began
And try to do the best I can
To live my life so it’ll finally make sense
Forget fear and anger, greed and pretence

The city can fall for all I care
All I long for I'll find there
Where my soul lies waiting for the heart
Ever beating never keep me apart
Yes I'm a good boy now
Don't know why, don't know how,
I'm a good boy now

One moment in time you think you know who you are
You found your direction and get in the car
Try to remember all the roads you once crossed
Turn a blind corner and find you are lost
But you’ll get back to the street that leads you back
Steady on following the right track
Yes, you’re a good boy now
Don’t care about the why and how
You’re a good boy now
