It's Gettin' Easy (Dear and the Headlights)

In this act I'll disguise those dead eyes Stretch tight the lips A glistening gum line Mouth curtains pulled I shine My yellow stage light smile distracting dancing puppets on short saliva strings So you'll find comfort in a lie My over-bite clenched, set in place Like a stack of polished, bright white dinner plates Hand in my pocket Straight jacket mind, yeah It's gettin' easy I wish I had a single thought The least bit legitimate enough To open up my mouth and spit accuracy It's gettin' easy In this act I'll disguise those dead eyes Lay flat the tongue Let the supplement slide down Everything is fine! And my brain is cloudy, leveled out The pill, dissolved, it's flushing out Everything I care about And not replacing it with anything substantial So I'm on my hands and knees Like a martyr callin' out his final plea The executioner looks exactly like me It's me! It's gettin' easy My over-bite clenched so tight Like a stack of dinner plates all polished white Hands at my side Straight jacket mind, alright It's gettin' easy And I wish I had a single thought The least bit legitimate enough And I wish I had a single thought The least bit legitimate enough (And I wish I had a single thought....) And I wish I wasn't on my hands and knees Like martyr callin' out his final plea The executioner looks exactly like me It's me! It's gettin's easy In this act I'll disguise those dead eyes Like a stack of dinner plates all polished white Hands at my side Straight jacket mind, alright It's gettin' easy.
