about

A Brighter Side of Darkness is the debut EP of Goodbye Good Sense. This release can be described as a melodic adventure that includes tidbits of hardcore, a smidgen of punk, and a dash of indie all wrapped up in the familiar comfort of rock. Rooted in the post-hardcore style of Thrice, Thursday and Glassjaw, A Brighter Side of Darkness reaches melodic heights in the vein of Circa Survive and Minus the Bear.

Track Name: Militia
This war is unpredictable
It's hard deciding on
which side you're fighting on
But I think that I am getting close
to whatever it is that they are trying to win.

I'll put my head down
And an ear to the ground
We will find the strength
to believe in ourselves.

Weighed down
Fighting through crowded streets
I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're only
slowing us down.
and I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're gone.

We'll wash
Our Sins
Away
When this all ends.
I pray that I
Can just survive
Long enough to make it past tonight.

I'll put my head down
And an ear to the ground
We will find the strength
to believe in ourselves.

Weighed down
Fighting through crowded streets
I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're only
slowing us down.
and I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're gone.

Pain
Pain is temporary

Weighed down
Fighting through crowded streets
I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're only
slowing us down.
and I see
The way to sweet victory
Push ahead
Forget the dead
Because they're gone.
Track Name: Forget the Lights
When you touch my skin
I want to let you in
Into this secret space
Hidden behind this face
Lock the door
put your clothes on the floor
and turn the music on.

Forget the lights
It’s you and I
There’s nothing here to fear.
There is no wrong
When this is going on
You can be who you want to here.

You seem to like when I'm moving slow
You kiss my lips, undress, you’re ready to go
I slide my hand down your skin
and I breathe you in.
You can’t tell me it’s wrong
I don't believe it.

Forget the lights
It’s you and I
There’s nothing here to fear.
There is no wrong
When this is going on
You can be who you want to here.

You can breathe me in
Inside, inside your lungs.
Let’s forget all sin
and focus, focus on love.

Don't even close the door
Who hasn't seen this before?
Let’s forget about our past
while I fill up your glass.
And let time go by.

Forget the lights
It’s you and I
There’s nothing here to fear.

There is no wrong
When this is going on
You can be who you want to here.
Track Name: Knowing When to Quit
Freight train
please carry away my pain
Somewhere far
So I can return to sanity
I’ll let the breeze
Live inside me
I'll stare at the sun
Till my soul becomes clean.

From my back porch I see
Through all the blindfolds
that have been put on me
Sit and reflect
On things I expect
Asking myself
Is it too much to ask
Or are we wasting our time?
Is this even worth the fight?
Ask yourself.

I will be silent I swear
If you would just tell me you cared
I'd have nothing to say.

If I say you were right
I’m tired of arguing
I’ll let myself bleed
Till I feel sorry
For keeping you up so late.

I feel like getting out
but I can't feeling into motion
Just let me live this down
before I'm sinking in the ocean.

If I say you were right
I’m tired of arguing
I’ll let myself bleed
Till I feel sorry
For keeping you up so late.

I should just walk away
But I can stop saying things
Can we lay this all to rest
If I get this off my chest

If I say you were right
I’m tired of arguing
I’ll let myself bleed
Till I feel sorry
For keeping you up so late.
Track Name: Divine Intervention
Do I dare compare myself to God
I created everything you are

Just let the violins
Drown out the silence
Alone inside your room
Is where we first
Turned to violence
At least well, I did
Sometimes I regret
The way that we unmet

I built the walls that still surround you
The foundation from which you came
You threw away the things I taught you
But the memories you can't erase

Do I dare compare myself to God
I created everything you are
If you want to find yourself beneath
You may just have to get through me

Can you make yourself forget
The life you used to live
Inside you'll always be
a lesser version of
The things I use to be
But you'll never become me
You'll always fall short
because you know that

I built the walls that still surround you
The foundation from which you came
You threw away the things I taught you
But the memories you can't erase

You can't erase
The rotten taste
Left in your mouth
From this place
You'll never get out
Of your own lie
You'll be a hostage
In your own life

I built the walls that still surround you
The foundation from which you came
You threw away the things I taught you
But the memories you can't erase
Track Name: Live (Right Now)
I won't be alone tonight
All of my friends are here at my side
The light from the moon
Is just enough till we light the fire.
and I don't see this going well
and we all could be going to hell
But its all right
Let's have fun tonight
We've got the rest of our lives to regret this

Live right now
If you wait till your older
You'll just end up hurting yourself

I feel strange
The blood is starting to rush to my brain
I'm paralyzed
Look in my eyes
And tell me you don't feel same.

I don't see this going well
and we all could be going to hell
But its all right
lets have fun tonight
we've got the rest of our lives to regret this

Live right now
If you wait till your older
You'll just end up hurting yourself
Live right now
Why are you waiting?
There is no debating
You'll just end up hurting yourself

One day when you're far away from home
This will be the only memory
This will be the only memory you know
Breathe the air as if you can't get more
This will be the only memory
This will be the only memory you know.
