BAD CODE Lyrics • By Deborah Johnson 2016 • ASCAP

Are you livin’ life to the fullest?Are you every place you wanna be?Do you wonder what is the greatest thingThat holds you back so easily? Thinkin’ thoughts of vulnerability, Scared you’ve got no credibility!

Get rid of that BAD CODE (BAD CODE) Get rid of that BAD CODE (Really, Really BAD) It’s just a BAD ROAD (BAD ROAD)Oh..... BAD CODE!

Are you phishin’ ‘round for solutions?Tryin’ to hack in every way you can. As you wonder what is protectingThe encrypted files you thought that you had. When you find susceptibilityYou can’t win with just positivity!

(CHORUS) Oh......Oh.... It’s Bad!

Get rid of that BAD CODE (BAD CODE) Get rid of that BAD CODE (Really BAD) It’s just a BAD ROAD (BAD ROAD)Oh..... BAD CODE!

It’ll bring you down to the bottom, With discouragement and apathy. It’s a malware and it’s spreading With a mental audacity. You can fight it with who you are insideIt’s just a keystroke to say you are alive!

What they say


Glenn Miya, M.D.  

Host of Smart Health Talk radio

“At the intersection of art and science, Deborah Johnson illuminates how our mind can get stuck like a faulty computer, or how it can run smoothly like a high speed download. This is owner’s manual for getting sharper with age, not slower.”

Jaime E. Mendoza, Psy.D

Assistant Professor of Psychology and Leadership

 Deborah takes the concept of Computer Bad Codes and applies them to how we personally view life based on the “codes” that we have personally written or accepted. She uses great illustrations to help us understand how this applies to each of us and what we can do to make changes. At the end of each chapter she provides a tools and mindset section for personal application.
