Do you understand this?
 
Hello everybody. I want to work the song Human by the Killers but there is a sentence that I don īt understand:
 
 
Send my condolencies to good
 
What does "to good" mean here? I īve looked it up in various dictionaries but I haven īt found anything and it doesn īt make any sense to me.
 
Thanks to all of you in advance.

Well, you need to take in account the line above that one: - Pay my respects to grace and virtue...

The singer is talking about certain virtues here ... grace, virtue and goodness... So "Send my condolences to good" would be the same as "give my condolences to goodness."

I agree with Zora. Also, it īs done to make the verse rhyme:

Send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance,
They always did the best they could
