The Good Life is drummer Roger L. Lewis’s love of classic rock, multi-instrumentalist Ryan Fox’s chaotic approach to melody, Stefanie Drootin-Senseney’s propulsive yet tuneful bass parts, and Tim Kasher’s deft, complementary song writing.

Track Name: Lovers Need Lawyers
I swear to speak the whole truth, nothing but the truth - oh, so help me God, I wasn't cheating on you. Yeah, I've got a spotty record, but I've been renewed. If you can't believe me - then what's to believe? Once you lose the trust you lose sincerity. I'm sick and tired of acting sincere
to your accusing eyes and ears.
Oh, lovers need lawyers; all that I'm screaming's being held against me. You're judge and jury, so hang me or take me for all I am worth - better or worse.
Yeah, I was drinking. Yeah, she was drinking too, and, yeah, we made a connection - she came from the same neighborhood. But, surely, you can't charge me for that, that's merely fact -merely coincidence. So, there we were, outlasting last call. We took a cab to Iowa for more alcohol.
Yeah, we crossed the river alone; I also went home alone.
Oh, lovers need lawyers. We're talking in circles, but missing the meaning of why we're fighting: you just want to make the best me that you can. All I am - take me for all I am worth. Take me for all I am.
I could never take another's hand... it's to you I'm condemned.
