Lyrics:

DO SOMETHING GOOD

You make clueless babble on a vacant street
With your unlit smoke and your shoeless feet
Directing traffic that don?t exist
Now you play the cop and you shake your fist

CHORUS:
Years ago it?s true you?d lost your way
Scars show from your walk in the dark woods
And it?s a familiar song
Even the bright folks can be wrong
For no one ever would
Think you could
DO SOMETHING GOOD

You stood alone in the shadow of a church spire
With our mind and heart both on fire
Soon the poison would fill your veins
You?d sleep it off under the moon and rain

CHORUS:
It?s a minor miracle you?re still alive
They wrote you off throughout the neighborhood
And it?s a familiar song
Even the bright folks can be wrong
For no one ever would
Think you could
DO SOMETHING GOOD
SOMETHING GOOD

Bridge:
You pulled two kids from that lake
Found their mamma?s glasses on the hood
Sometimes something so bad
Is what it takes
To see SOMETHING GOOD
SOMETHING GOOD

I know you?ve walked a many a broken mile
You lost your way and you lost your smile
You lost your grip and you dropped the keys
And when the cops showed up you were on your knees

CHORUS:
Years ago it?s true you?d lost your way
Scars show from your walk in the dark woods
And it?s a familiar song
Even the bright folks can be wrong
For no one ever would
Think you could
DO SOMETHING GOOD
SOMETHING GOOD
SOMETHING GOOD
