The Easy Life

The Easy Life


I'm barely here
I'm barely here
my skin's so thin 
the fluorescents shine right through it 
Can they see how close I am?
like an abscess leaking fluid 
How many people in this store
are just about to lose it?

I ran up to the counter
like a man who's on fire
crying out to the pharmacist,
"Give me something to make the world smaller,
something to make the world smaller,
I need something to make the world smaller for me.” 

‘Cause I just can't handle this easy life
gotta find something wrong just to feel alright
I just can't stand this easy life
am I afraid of love, or just love a fight?

Oh no

Lately it seems so easy 
to get paralyzed by the size of things
(oh no, no no)
my soul’s agoraphobic,
I can't find a light to shine in the night of things
(oh no, no no)
I need a motorbike or a puppy,
some gravity to turn the tide of things
(oh no, no no)
it's so easy to lose your narrative 
when you question the wrong and right of things

When I think about
all that pain I caused
to the girls I’ve loved
and the friends I lost
I wonder how I ever sleep at night…
    
I guess I just can't handle this easy life
gotta find something wrong just to feel alright
I just can’t stand this easy life
am I afraid of love, or just love a fight?

[repeat ad nauseam]
