LyricsEdit

I was sitting in the street when the news came my way
I was sitting in the street when the news came my way
Good news
Good news
Good news
Good news

I was sitting in the street when the messenger came by 
I was sitting in the street when the messenger came my way
Good news, good news like a rare blood disorder
Good news
Good news

I was sitting in the street
I don't believe I've made it clear what exactly I mean by that
I was sitting in the middle of the street
Dust made its way into my legs even though my shirt was tucked in
And I saw the colors forming in the west
Saw the bright feathers reflected in the sky, now
Good news
Good news
Good news
Good news

Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "...I don't think I've ever played this one live before. Why? Because when the album came out, everyone hated it. But, but, that was then and this is now and everyone in those days, like two of my friends, said 'Why did you put that song second?' I'd be like, 'No man, that song has to go second.' And they'd be like, 'No, but that's the longest song on the record and it's really slow' and I'd be like, 'Yeah, no, yeah, I know, it's second. Comes after a really fast one and then it's really long.' And they're like, 'Yeah, I don't know.'" -- 2009-06-13 - Zoop II - Farm Sanctuary - Watkins Glen, NY
