The Good Part


These may be your finest hours
The world is whistling and warm
We have got forgotten powers
You were charming, you could do no harm

Let's just get to the good part (let's get to the good part)
Let's just skip ahead (let's skip ahead)
Come on get to the good part (let's get to the good part)
Why can't we just skip ahead (let's skip ahead)

Every artist falls apart
Thinking he's only only's art
And when the world is lonely and dark
It's a warning not to hitch apart

Let's just get to the good part (let's get to the good part)
Come on skip ahead (let's skip ahead)
Why can't we get to the good part (let's get to the good part)
Come on skip ahead (let's skip ahead)

Skip ahead
C'mon skip ahead
Let's skip ahead
Skip ahead

I can see the anxiety
Of trying to be yourself
But I can't tell you what kind of hell
It is to really think you're somebody else

Let's just get to the good part (let's get to the good part)
Come on let's skip ahead (let's skip ahead)
Come on let's get to the good part (is this the good part)
Why can't we skip ahead

Skip ahead
C'mon skip ahead
Let's skip ahead
Skip ahead
