"Simple Life" as written by and Jim Matheos Kevin Moore....
I want a color TV
And a newspaper blocking the door
I want a credit card key
And a new phone book on the floor
I want a getaway map of the hallway
I want a birdseye view of the Hyundai
So I can sleep sleep sleep
Or maybe I'll just sit in the car

But here there's no silence silence
There's no silence silence
Best thing is keep singing
(So simple, life)

I want a colorform theme
And a vending machine down the hall
I want a ready-made bed
And a passport safe in the wall
I want to have it just the way I couldn't give it
I want a life that lives the way we couldn't live it
So I can sleep sleep sleep
Or maybe I'll just sit in the car

But here there's no silence silence
There's no silence silence
Best thing is keep singing
(So simple, life)

    General CommentThis one is complex and odd. This song is awesome to get lost in.

    General CommentI believe this one is about distraction. This person keeps thinking of all the things he/she wants "because here there's no silence", meaning no break.

    General CommentThis song is about materialism and how it gets in the way of spiritual silence.

    Kevin values the 'simple life' and his peace and 'silence' are more important to him than material possessions.

    General CommentIt's about Kevin's shitty experiences at hotels. Most likely while he was with Dream Theater.
