"Easy/Lucky/Free" features a semi-iconic music video in which a young Conor Oberst writes and illustrates the lyrics of the song on a clear glass panel just in the foreground of the camera. It is a simple yet effective way to show the artistry and the pain of Bright Eyes' lead singer and songwriter. The lyrics address dealing with understanding the brevity of life, inevitability of death, and importance of facing it with gratitude (though it may be ironic) anyway: "Don't you weep for now. There is nothing as lucky, as easy, or free."
This song was featured on the soundtrack for the 2008 Spanish language film Voy a Explotar.
