Easy Way Out

Album: Making Mirrors (2011)
  • 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)
    Alright now
    (You know you should just let it go)

    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

    Brain-dead 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?)
    Alright now
    (Was it just a waste of time?)

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

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

    Wearing me out
    (But it's alright now)
    Hanging around
    (Alright now)
    Getting me down
    (But it's alright now)
