    Easy Way Out lyrics

    Seventeen seconds and I'm over it
    Ready for the disconnect
    Putting on a brave face
    Trying not to listen
    to the voices in the back of my head

    (But it's alright now)
    It's a distant memory baby
    (It's alright now)
    You know you should just let it go

    But some feelings have a habit of persisting
    even though you wouldn't let it show

    Wearing me out
    (All this)
    Hanging around
    (It just starts)
    Getting me down
    ('till I'm just)
    Looking for an easy way out

    Braindead from boredom
    I'm led to distraction
    Scratching the surface of life
    Nothing really happens
    But it's easy to keep busy
    When you tell yourself you're traveling right

    (But it's alright now)
    Was it really worth it baby?
    (It's alright now)
    Was it just a waste of time?

    Keep on second-guessing
    Use my memory like a weapon
    On everything I try

    *************
    Now and then I think of when we were together
    Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
    Told myself that you were right for me
    But felt so lonely in your company
    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

    You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
    Like resignation to the end
    Always the end
    So when we found that we could not make sense
    Well you said that we would still be friends
    But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And that feels so rough
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records
    And then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    And I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And that feels so rough
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records
    And then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    I used to know
    That I used to know

    Somebody...

    *****************************
    So this is the end of the story
    Everything we had, everything we did
    Is buried in dust
    And this dust is all that’s left of us

    But only a few ever worried
    Though the signs were clear, they had no idea
    You just get used to living in fear
    Or give up
    When you can’t even picture your future

    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open…

    Some people offered up answers
    We made out like we heard, but they were only words
    They didn’t add up
    To a change in the way we were living

    And the saddest thing-
    Is all of it could have been avoided
    But it was like to stop consuming is to stop being human
    And why would I make a change if you won’t
    We’re all in the same boat, staying afloat
    For the moment

    And we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we..
    Walk the plank with our eyes wide open

    With our eyes wide open we...
    Walk the plank, we walk the plank

    And that was the end of the story

    Pick apart

    The pieces of your heart

    And let me peer inside

    Let me in
    Where only your thoughts have been

    Let me occupy your mind
    As you do mine

    You have lost

    Too much love
    To fear, doubt and distrust

    (It’s not enough)
    You just threw away the key

    To your heart
    You don’t get burned
    
(’Cause nothing gets through)
    It makes it easier
    (Easier on you)
    But that much more difficult for me
    To make you see…

    Love ain’t fair
    So there you are
    My love

    Your heart’s a mess
    You won’t admit to it
    It makes no sense
    
But I’m desperate to connect

    And you, you can’t live like this

    Love ain’t safe
    You won’t get hurt if you stay chaste
    So you can wait
    But I don’t wanna waste my love
