Easy

When I was younger much younger than now
it was graveyards and candlewax vows
how I'd never be taken alive

Now that I've miraculously survived
the rites of my furious spring
I still cling to my arrows and slings

Easy, it's not easy, it's not easy to believe

Never is forever better beware
if you stare too long into the lair
then the beast, it will notice you're there

Where have my suicide lovers all gone?
Breaking bottles of red bravado
over quietly patient headstones

Easy, it's not easy, it's not easy to be- leave me now
leave me while you still can
to my crow and the worms in my wine.
So absurd, the things I once wished for in glorious vain
I was young and insane.

When I was younger much younger than now
it was graveyards and candlewax vows
how I'd never be taken alive
