'What Good Does It Do?' is the first single off our upcoming album 'Rain Season.'

The song is a personal admission of the futility of one's own frustration, an enraged and impassioned plea for better temperment



I'm tired of getting mad
I can't even get even
If I don't get nothing at all
Perhaps I'm better off

My only place of residence
Is right here in my head
So don't you waste one penny on my thoughts
They're better left unsaid

What good does it do?
What good does it do?

Well I used to throw my weight around
But that just kept weighing me down
I used to be spiteful to the one I loved
Until she stopped coming around

It's useless to curse at the sky
You'll only make it cry
Your anger it won't change, not one thing
Even after the day that you die

So what good does it do?
Yeah what good does it do?
