Federal Empire, The - Good Man Lyrics




I've been sober for a month
Hardly thought about drinking
You made a man outta me
I never go out on the weekends
It only took a couple seconds
I was dancing with the devil
Now I'm digging my grave
With a silver-tipped shovel
Yeah, I'm diving off the deep end

I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
Will I ever get it right
No I'll never get it right, will I?
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man

I had a bulletproof plan
See I really started thinking
When I tell you that I love you, girl
I really wanna mean it
I was fine for a while
Having dinner round the table
Till I took a couple shots
From the old Black Label, yeah
Now I'm diving off the deep end

I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
Will I ever get it right
No I'll never get it right, will I?
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man

I've been sober for a month
Hardly thought about drinking
You made a man outta me
I never go out on the weekends
It only took a couple seconds
I was dancing with the devil
Now I'm digging my grave
With a silver-tipped shovel
Yeah, I'm diving off the deep end

I just wanna be a... good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
Will I ever get it right
No I'll never get it right, will I?
I just wanna be a good man (for ya)
I just wanna be a good man

Federal Empire, The Good Man Comments
  1. TheNameYahuwah

    Nice rhythm, however I like Devour the Day's better...

  2. dearxphantom

    sumerian goes country? DA FUCK?!?!?! O_o

  3. Xx_ B.I.G Rāÿ_xx

    Discovered these guys just from this song while exploring Instagram 🔥🔥🔥

    Carrie Linn

    Same! Came across my stories and instantly had to look them up!

  4. BlazeBio Ranger

    I very like Devour The Day. But this song "Good Man" is a terrible fake of the original. The choir is almost one to one. And don’t tell me that you never heard song Devoure The Day - "Good Man", and you randomly wrote a song like theirs.
    If this is not a cover, then copyright infringement.My "Dislike" is for plagiarism.

  5. Artur Amaral

    Loving it

  6. ryan mcnabb

    Was taken back looking thu the labels new videos and instantly fell in love with this song!

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    thank you !!!

  7. Joe Learned

    Dude is that Andrew Reynolds?

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    who is that the dude with the Tats that's Keith

    Joe Learned

    @CarolinaLiarOnline the dude in the black beanie. He seriously looks like pro skater Andrew Reynolds

  8. DelinquentDJ

    Is this a Chevy commercial lmao

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    It could be for that chevy owner who pretends he's all about that dad life until he nips the bottle and gets interesting. I personally would love to take the video to the next level like that. Hanging out being decent then the next moment is a race to Vegas with some busted up chevy and brown baggin from the front seat.. that's a good story . It's real

  9. XFeartyy

    I love The Federal Empire! This song is fire! I'm so happy that I found them. My life has changed after I found their rebel songs with deep lyrics ^^

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    We are grateful to everyone supporting us and finding some meaning to these songs that work for them

  10. Ammar Nadeem

    I think this song needs a joker movie tribute 👍

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    Do you make edits ? I'd help to get it shared with the label

    Ammar Nadeem

    @CarolinaLiarOnline nope i don't bro my apologies

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    @Ammar Nadeem it's a solid idea thank you do you mind if we run with it

    Ammar Nadeem

    @CarolinaLiarOnline yea sure bro i would love to 😊

  11. Olive Mule

    yahhhhh this is good.
    I clicked because the thumbnail looked cool.
    This is a good song for outlaws

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    that's the idea !!

    Olive Mule

    @CarolinaLiarOnline great work I really like it!

    Olive Mule

    @Aylen Ferreyra I need to check out their older works

  12. Lucero romero

    Es una canción muy bonita, me gusto mucho !!👍👍👍💕💕

  13. Cocagne117

    Welp gotta go listen to Good Man by Devour the Day to get this awful taste outta my mouth

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    I'll check that one out too. Thanks for giving it a shot

  14. Bongos and Lemonheads

    I've been sober 6 months now... and I always think about drinkin' 👊🏼 Awesome song ✌🏼❤

    Dawn Lynch

    It's not easy giving up drink but you must be pretty proud of yourself to being sober for 6-months well done and keep up the good work my mum was an alcoholic and she goes up in 81 and she stayed sober but she had other things to worry about with her health and you'll be surprised what drink can do to your body many years later but I was very proud of my mum that she stayed sober

    Bongos and Lemonheads

    @Dawn Lynch that is so nice. Thank you for sharing your mother's story. Everyday is a struggle and a blessing for me and my loved ones. And it's real powerful stories like hers that help me to strong. Again THANK YOU ✌🏼❤🤩

  15. jOd

    Definitely what asking alexandrias New album is going to sound like lol smh

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    those dudes will always be cool. Federal Empire is back yard bbq band that likes to laugh at them selves for there poor life choices! Thank you for giving us a shot.

  16. Anonymous Shawn

    Glad to say I got my alcohol under control. ONLY ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS.

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    yeah the the gist of it. It's not an easy ride

    mike west

    Anonymous Shawn obviously isn’t alcoholic anonymous Shawn.

    Dawn Lynch

    So pleased you got your alcohol under control if you can stay sober for six months or longer you got to be proud of yourself for doing it it gets a hard road but it's worth it in the long run

    Anonymous Shawn

    @Dawn Lynch Thanks! :) Its pretty easy to not drink. My reason for cutting back was that I'm a real bad binge drinker and I fought my brother in a drunken stupor and don't remember a thing. So now, I only allow myself to take one shot with the host/hostess of a party/gathering.

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    @Dawn Lynch 100%

  17. Fawexx

    Federal Empire? so this is Russian Politics Themed Music?

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    Close to that but not 100. It's more satirical in the nature of the writing. So many things we a a band came to understand that our " American Dream" was a little bit darker but funny because we did it to our selves.

  18. tippi

    Sounds like a Toyota commercial

    ferdinardos

    hahahaha !

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    We got to keep it made in America though even in reality a sweet Toyo is a perfect projection of a "Good Man" honestly I'd take that commercial.... you got contacts over there? We'd give you a cut.

  19. David Durden

    lyrics?

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    i think they are posting them soon !

  20. Ochtone

    Sumerian, Nashville branch

    CarolinaLiarOnline

  21. Fabulous Killjoy

    Hard pass.

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    thanks for trying it !!!

  22. Christofer Muñoz Vargas

    que cancion tan wuai

  23. Nehemiah HD

    Catchy😍

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    solid thank you

  24. Eric Phelan

    🤦‍♂️

  25. Dominic

    ew tf happened to Sumerian

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    It's a change for sure. When we signed we knew that Sumerian is an honest label that stands behind the art they produce and everyone there is real. They haven't changed in that respect at all they believed in what we were saying with our work wanted to see how it would work with the audience they have built together with you guys. The take away is that the guys take risk most labels wont. Don't give up on them yet Im sure they will have some insane surprises

    Phillip McLeod

    well years ago they decided to be smarter and diversify their music. This your first time back here in years? Bye elitist

    Dominic

    @Phillip McLeod Are you just now starting to realize that people may have a different taste in music to yours? Why would you even bother commenting haha I`m not going anywhere, see you around.

    Phillip McLeod

    @Dominic you make a stupid comment years after the change and are butthurt that they don't have the same old metalcore. I'm obviously welcome to all new kinds of music unlike you who feels the need to post negative comments for some reason. You aren't going away? Great! More views for Sumerian bands.

  26. Marilda Queiroz

    Gente ! Que banda T.O .P ! Que som gostoso de ouvir

    Marilda Queiroz

    I said I loved the sound, the music, which is a nice tune to hear even though it has a heavier rock stamp. very much really.

    Fabulous Killjoy

    Marilda Queiroz I mean I got that much, but I didn’t understand what the three letters stood for. Thanks for explaining though

    Giovanni anderson

    Muito bom o som dos caras msm 👏👏

    Olive Mule

    @Marilda Queiroz I loved this song so much

    CarolinaLiarOnline

    @Marilda Queiroz dude thanks

  27. Jordan Adams

    This song makes me want to be a Good Man

    mike west

    Jordan Adams yeah dude, I am quitting heroin today.

    Eric Phelan

    I’m going to stop beating no my 🌭

    CarolinaLiarOnline
