  • You like snow but only if it's warm
    You like rain but only if it's dry
    There's no sentimental value to the rose that fell on your floor
    There's no fundamental excuse for the granted I'm taken for

    'Cause it's easy not to
    So much easier not to
    And what goes around never comes around to you

    You like pain but only if it doesn't hurt too much
    And you sit, and you wait, to receive
    There's an obvious attraction
    To the path of least resistance in your life
    Well there's an obvious aversion no amount of my insistence
    Could make you try tonight

    'Cause it's easy not to
    So much easier not to
    And what goes around never comes around to you
    To you, to you, to you, to you, to you

    There's no love, no money, no thrill anymore

    There's an apprehensive naked little trembling boy
    With his head in his hands
    And there's an underestimated and impatient little girl
    Raising her hand

    But it's easy not to
    So much easier not to
    And what goes around never comes around to you
    To you, to you

    Get up, get up, get up off of it
    Get up, get up, get up off of it
    Get out, get outta here, enough already
    Get up, get up, get up off of it
    Wake up
