05. Easier Than Love

Nothing Is Sound
by Switchfoot



 

Sex is currency
She sells cars, she sells magazines
Addictive, bittersweet, clap your hands
With the hopeless nicotines

Everyones a lost romantic
Since our love became a kissing show
Everyones a Casanova
Come and pass me the mistletoe
Everyones been scared to death of dying here alone

She is easier than love, is easier than life.
It's easier to fake and smile and bribe
Its easier to leave. Its easier to lie.
Its harder to face ourselves at night, feeling alone
What have we done, what is the monster weve become
Where is my soul
(Numb)

Sex is industry, the CEO of corporate policy
Skin deep ministry, suburban youth, hail your so called liberty
Every advertising antic our banner waves with a neon glow
War and love become pedantic, we wage love with a mistletoe

Everyones been scared to death of
Everyones been scared to death of
Everyones been scared to death of dying here alone
alone

Sex is easier than love. Its easier than life.
Its easier to fake and smile and bribe
Its easier to leave. Its easier to lie.
Its harder to face ourselves at night, feeling alone
What have we done, what is the monster weve become
Where is my soul (Where is my soul)
Where is my soul
(Numb)

Behind the Song:
Another song inspired by irony or paradox or perhaps sheer confusion. How is it that one of the most meaningful, intimate moments in a human's life is now used to sell beverages or magazines or auto parts? And indeed, sex sells. It's no wonder that sex is easier than love, because love is extremely difficult, almost impossible at times. I have no fingers to point, my friends, I'm simply stating the obvious and I love screaming this one out. This one was inspired by the Shins- a great band with great production elements. In many ways, Romey really made this one come alive. Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
