"No Easy Way Out" as written by and Craig/atias Bartock....
We're not indestructible,
Baby better get that straight.
I think it's unbelievable,
How you give into the hands of fate.
Some things are worth fighting for,
Some feelings never die.
I'm not asking for another chance,
I just wanna know why.

There's no easy way out,
There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out,
Giving in can't be wrong.

I don't wanna pacify,
I don't wanna drag you down.
But I'm feeling like a prisoner,
Like a stranger in a no-name town.
I see all the angry faces,
Afraid that could be you and me.
Talking about what might have been,
Thinking about how it used to be.

There's no easy way out,
There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out,
Giving in can't be wrong.

Baby maybe we can shed this skin,
We can know how we feel inside.
Instead of going down this endless road,
Not knowing if we're dead or alive.
Well some things are worth fighting for,
Some feelings never die. (NEVER DIE)
I'm not asking for another chance,
I just wanna know why.

There's no easy way out,
There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out,
Givin' in, givin' in, can't be wrong, no.

[Repeat: x2]
There's no easy way out,
(There's no easy way out)
There's no shortcut home.
(There's no shortcut home)
There's no easy way out,
(There's no easy, no easy, no easy way out).

There's no easy way out,
There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out,
Givin' in, givin' in, can't be wrong, no.

    General CommentIt's Robert Tepper indeed. I really like this, better than any of the other covers, I think. Well, it could of course be because I don't like Metallica, etc. *hum*

    General CommentGreat bonus song. Lifts the mood with the poppy intro with blazing guitars. Reminds me of Enter Shikari but good.

    General Commentthis song is about lovers finding themselves in the middle of a crossroad and they are falling apart, due to the distance or time. but still one of them is asking why should it be like this and is trying to hold on to this love even if the other thinks its impossible to hold on to it.

    "there is no easy way out" out of this tunnel there is nothing for them still he is trying hard to cling to this love and fighting the odds because its worthy even if its not easy.

    am kinda in a situation like this at the moment, at first i didnt like this song but now i understand and feel the mood and lyrics better

    General Comment"Giving in can't be wrong," seems to go against the rest of the chorus and almost ruins the song for me. He goes on and on about how he is going to stick it out, then talks about giving in like he wants to take the easy way. The only justification I can come up with is that he is giving in to gettin' 'er done the hard way. Any opinions? Obviously a real hot discussion topic.......
    Either way, this is my theme song. Just trying to graduate; I have to keep telling myself: "there's no easy way out."
