The Good Times Are Killing Me - Good News for People Who Love Bad News
"There's been a lot of drug abuse. The only drugs I've ever actually written any music on are pills, pot, and alcohol. Acid or coke, you can't write songs on that shit. I kind of regret how much I did drugs. There was a point in time when it seemed like a good plan, but it probably wasn't. Especially inhalants, and shit like that-I think I was a bit brighter before I did that. Inhalants and meth were probably the two things that totally fucking screwed me out of some brain cells." - Isaac Brock (A.V. Club Interview, April 7, 2004)
Lyrics:

[Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh]

[Is there an ashtray out here?]

[Isaac: What?]

[Can we smoke in here?]

[Isaac: Yeah, Eric said there's pockets]

The good times

[Yes]

Release the good times
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me

Here we go

Got dirt, got air, got water and I know you can carry on
Shrug off shortsighted, false excitement and oh what can I say
Have one, have twenty more, one mores and oh it does not relent

The good times are killing me

Kick butt buzz-cut dickheads who didn't like what I said
The good times are killing me
Jaws clenched tight we talked all night, oh but what the hell did we say
The good times are killing me

The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me

Fed up with all that LSD
Need more sleep than coke or methamphetamines
Late nights with warm, warm whiskey
I guess the good times they were all just killing me

Got dirt, got air, got water and I know you can carry on
The good times are killing me
Enough hair of the dog to make myself an entire rug
The good times are killing me
Have one, have twenty more, one mores and oh it does not relent
The good times are killing me
Shit-kicker city slickers who all wanted me dead
The good times are killing me
Get sucked in and stuck in late nights with more folks that I don't know
The good times are killing me

The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
The good times are killing me
