Path of Least Resistance (Trillium)

Insist on taking the path of least resistance Less hurdles to jump at first with less consistency It’s fine, as long as you go and roll with all the punches With your rubber-ball-thick-skinned-novocain-impervious self You’re telling yourself that it’s not so bad... You sweet, sweet fool You know, you could have it all But you keep it inside till you feel the tremors way down inside your blood and bones You sweet, sweet fool You so could have had it all But you’re determined to walk down your path of least resistance Well, the choice is your own Watch out: this time the bite is worse than the bark is And the sun can be just as blinding as the darkness is So apt to make the mountain now into a molehill While you wish and hope, dream on, thinking that you’re safe on your shelf Keep telling yourself that it’s not that bad... But it’s so damn sad You sweet, sweet fool You know, you could have it all But you keep it inside till you feel the tremors way down inside your blood and bones You sweet, sweet fool You so could have had it all But you’re determined to walk down your path of least resistance Well, the choice is your own Gloss over the cracks till the next earthquake comes Shaking you down to the San Andreas through your heart Run, you wild mustang, while you’re tethered to your pole And eat the poisoned apples that the wicked witch has fed your soul
