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
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

Well, 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

    General CommentIt came time to vote around here recently... And one of my classmates told me he Doesn't Vote... and I got to thinking how much it's always easier NOT to do something. And then I remembered this song. I swear, Alanis knows what's up. Her lyrics are always creeping back somehow. It's amazing! ... And about the album comments, I think the extra "You Oughta Know" shoulda been THE one.. Cuz it has that awesome bassline.. But I guess she'd already released the first one? But I agree "Your House" as an a capella hidden track was genius. Like a hidden confession... (Though I read that all of her songs are true, EXCEPT that one hehe)
