Good Man, Bad Man

from Diversion E​.​P. by McDougall

lyrics

Riding along, thought I was on my way
I ran for the sunset, then reached for each new day
Proclaiming all my love so very loud and clear
Now I mumble to no one near, "my old ways finally found me here"

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?

Then I thought myself further down into the darkness
Finally realized I'm capable of being heartless
I just want to wake up clean,
Follow Jesus the Nazarene, and start doing what I mean

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?

The ones in the clean white coats say, "live it up, this is all she wrote"
The ones in the tall black hats say, "we've got the money to get behind that"
The ones in the rose sunglasses say, "yeah man, it all just passes"
I guess I'm left here holding this bag, the only one who's got sin to drag

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?
