"The Path of Least Resistance" as written by Ian Craig Marsh, Philip Oakey and Martyn Ware....
Faced with the choice
What would you say?
The path of least resistance
It seems the only way
But can we look a little further?
Too little far I think
Self-belief's the answer
And not another drink
The safe method, the only way
You rationalise your course
Stay part of the crowd
And never find the source
Feel wanted, feel numb
Just stay as you are
The truth is - comfort kills
And you don't need that car
So sad, the early grave
When all the fun's for free
Start digging the early grave
And keep it warm for me
Faced with the choice
What would you say?
The path of least resistance
It seems the only way
But let's look a little further
Too little far, I think
Self-belief's the answer
And not another drink
The safe method, the only way
You rationalise your course
Stay a part of the crowd
And never find the source
Feel wanted, feel numb
Just stay as you are
The truth is, comfort kills
And you don't need that car

    General Comment
    This song is about how its better to at least move in a direction of cold logic and strategy than basically give up and throw in the towel.

    It's sharply critical of people who give up to easilly.
