Godsmack Dec 4, 2007

Celebrating a decade long career for the band, Good Times, Bad Times, also includes a 2004 performance at The House of Blues.

# Title Duration
1 Good Times. Bad Times
In the days of my youth
I was told what it means to be a man,
Now I've reached that age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try,
I find my way to do the same old jam.

Good times, bad times,
You know I've had my share;
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man,
Well, I still don't seem to care.

Sixteen: I fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be,
She Only took a couple of days
Till she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine
And love me till the end,
When I whispered in her ear
I lost another friend.

Good times, bad times,
You know I've had my share;
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man,
Well, I still don't seem to care.

Good times, bad times,
You know I've had my share;
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man,
Well, I still don't seem to care.

I know what it means to be alone,
I sure do wish that I was home.
And I don't care what my neighbors say,
I'm gonna love you each and every day.

You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't never gonna part.
2 Whatever
And I wonder
Day to day
I don't like you
anyway.

in your own way.

I feel for you...
Better fuckin go away
I will behave...
You better fuckin go away!

I'm doing the best I ever did
I'm doing the best that I can
I'm doing the best I ever did...

I don't need to
fantasize.
You are my pet
all the time.

I don't mind if
you go blind.
You get what you get
until you're through with mine

I feel for you...
Better fuckin go away
I will behave...
You better go away!

I feel for you...

4 Voodoo
I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.

Candles raise my desire,
Why I'm so far away.
No more meaning to my life,
No more reason to stay.

Freezing, feeling,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.

Hazing clouds rain on my head,
Empty thoughts fill my ears.
Find my shape by the moonlight,
Why my thoughts aren't so clear.

Demons dreaming,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.[repeat 4 times]


Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo.
[repeat]


So far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
5 Bad Religion
(Spoken) The word of God it says, that we will recieve praise of God. God will begin to speak forth. Our righteousness is of Him, sayeth the Lord.


Get Back!

Can you feel I'm not like you anymore?
I can't see, I can't breathe!
See you quiver like the dogs on the streets.
Looking down on as I beat you.

It's a bad religion
From a broken nation
It's a contradiction

And I can't take it anymore, Yeah!

Who's to say I won't like you anyway?
Take a deep breath I'm alive.
Can you hear me? I'm alive inside you.
Agony creeps up behind you.

[repeat chorus]

And I can't take it any fuckin' way!

[repeat chorus]

Can you feel it?
I've gotta live with it every day.
And I can't take the pressure,
I'm goin' insane. Now go away!
Go away!

(Spoken) Now if you start praising God, wherever you are. I don't care where you are, I don't care what's happening, just begin to praise Him, begin to praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and worship Him
6 Awake
Wait another minute
Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me
I'm alive and still kicking
What you see I can't see and maybe you'll think before you speak

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

Take another second
Turn your back on me
and make believe that you're always happy
It's safe to say you're never alive
A big part of you has died and by the way,
I hope you're satisfied

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,

(go)

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so i can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when im awake

Tearing it back, unveiling me
Taking a step back so i can breathe
Hear the silence about to break
Fear resistance when im awake

arrrrr

OH YEAH

AH YEAH

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you

I'm alive,
For you I'm awake
Because of you I'm alive
Told you I'm awake,
Swallowing you
7 Greed
Two faced! I feel you crawling under my skin.
Sickened by your face.
By the way, to think that you're so fucking kind?
You ain't!

Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me!

I knew when an angel whispered into my ear,
You gotta get him away.
Hey little bitch! Be glad you finally walked away or
you may have not lived another day.

Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me.
Hard to find how I feel, controlling me every step of the way.
Hard to find how I feel, you greedy little baby!

Hard to find, to find the time, find the time, find the time.
Hard to find the time, to find the time, to find the time.

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah (7X)

Aaaah, yeah.

Haaaa,
Hard to find how I feel, especially when your smothering me.
Hard to find how I feel, please someone help me.
Hard to find how I feel, controlling me every step of the way.
Hard to find how I feel, you greedy little baby!
8 I Stand Alone
Now I've told you this once before can't control me
If you try to take me down you're gonna break
I feel your every nothing that your doing for me
I'm thinking you oughta make you run away

I stand alone inside
I stand alone(I stand alone)

You're always hiding behind your so called godess
So what, you don't think that we can see your face?
Ressurrected back before the final fallen
I'll never rest until I can make my own way

I'm not afraid of fading
I stand alone
Feeling your sting down inside me
I'm not dying for it
I stand alone
Everything that I believe is fading
I stand alone inside
I stand alone(I stand alone)

Now it's my time (now it's my time)
It's my time to dream (It's my time to dream)
Dream of the skies (dream of the skies)
Make me believe that this place isn't plagued by the poison in me
Help me decide if my fire will burn out before you can breath
Breath into me

I stand alone inside
I stand alone

Feeling your sting down inside me
I'm not dying for it
I stand alone
Everything that I believe is fading

I stand alone inside
I stand alone inside
I stand alone inside
I stand alone inside
9 Straight Out Of Line
There's no reason, there's no compromise
Change in seasons, living the high life
I don't know you so don't freak on me
I can't control you, you're not my destiny


Straight out of line
I can't find a reason why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason, you don't need to lie to me


I'll confess this: you're my tragedy
I laid you to rest just as fast as you turned on me
Gone forever, banished the memories
this place of pleasure are masked by your misery


Straight out of line
I can't find a reason why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason, you don't need to lie to me
Lie to me

Straight out of line
I can't find a reason why I should justify my ways
Straight out of line
I don't need a reason, you don't need to
Don't need to lie to me
Lie to me
Lie to me
Lie to me
10 Serenity
As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I'm the one in your soul
Reflecting the light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling your inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Tragic visions slowly stole my life
Tore away everything
Cheating me out of my time
I'm the one who loves you
No matter wrong or right
And every day I hold you
I hold you with my inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

I need serenity [x2]
11 Re-Align
Decisions made from desperation
No way to go
Internal instincts craving isolation
For me to grow

My fears come alive
In this place where I once died
Demons dreaming
Knowing I...I just needed to realign

Fell in a river of illusion
And apathy
Drowning in a self-induced confusion
I'd rather be
Yeah!

My fears come alive
In this place where I once died
Demons dreaming
Knowing I...I just needed to realign

My fears come alive
In this place where I once died
Demons dreaming
Knowing I...I just needed to realign

Yeah!

Yeah! [4x]

My fears come alive
In this place where I once died
Demons dreaming
Knowing I...I just needed to realign

My fears come alive
In this place where I once died
Demons dreaming
Knowing I...I just needed to realign
Yeah!
12 Running Blind
Can’t find the answers
I’ve been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
Promises have been turned to lies
Can’t even be honest inside
I'm running backwards
Watching my life wave me goodbye

Running blind
I’m running blind
Somebody help me see I’m running blind

Searching for nothing
Wondering if I’ll change
I’m trying everything
But everything still stays the same
I thought if I showed you I could fly
Wouldn’t need anyone by my side
I'm running backwards
With broken wings I know I’ll die

Running blind
I’m running blind
Somebody help me see I’m running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind

I can’t find the answers
I’ve been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
I’m running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind

15 Shine Down
So tired sleeping through the day
Bloodshot eyes and the sweat from my body
And I picked my head up yesterday
Found no reason or hope left inside of me

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there's someone above

Shinedown, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground

A dead silence overwhelming me
Day and night takes its toll on my sanity
And I know I've been away too long
All these years I've been hiding
A feeling I'm coming strong

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there's someone that's up above
Show me a path to find my way
And give me a reason to pray

Shinedown, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground, yeah

Shine down, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
And shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground
Shinedown
Shinedown
Oh, shine down
Oh baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
Shinedown
Oh, shinedown
Oh, shinedown
Oh baby shinedown
16 The Enemy
Hey Mister backstabbin' son of a bitch
you're livin' in a world that'll soon be dyin'
and I know everybody knows you try to be like me
but even at your best as a man you couldn't equal half of me.

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy.

You, your another shit talkin' punk to me.
You're a living inspiration for what I never wanna be,
and I see you've been blinded by what you believe
And now back up and sit down, shut up and act like you need to be.

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly,
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy.

come to me, come to me
the enemy come to me, come to me

So predicting you're the reason why I lie
simple decision took me too much time to fly
Oh, checkmate!

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly,
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy

come to me
