The Easy Way

So, I bought a vocoder. This is my vocoder song. If you are unfamiliar, a vocoder is something that mixes speech with an instrument. So I plug in a mic and my guitar to the vocoder, and it takes the notes from my guitar and mixes with what I’m saying. There was a specific vocoder, the Roland SVC-350 that I’ve been obsessed with for a really long time, and I finally pulled the trigger on it. So of course I had to make a song with this new toy. 

Regarding the meaning of the song, it’s mostly just about that feeling where the world feels heavy. Like fuuuuuck, why is shit so hard? And in those moments I’m like damn why do I make things hard on myself? I need to do it the easy way! 

Lyrics

Stuck in a rut
Trapped in a box
Behind a door
That’s shut and locked
Remember it’s okay
To do it the Easy Way
For once in your life
Do it the Easy Way
Take away my pain
Tell me it’s okay
Teach me how to do it
Teach me how to do it the Easy Way
Why fall down on my knees to pray?
I can stand on two feet and say
At least for today
I’m going to do it
I’m going to do it the Easy Way
Nothing left to give
Nothing more to say
Ease your worried mind
And do it the Easy Way
Do it the Easy Way
Why does everything feel so hard?
I must learn to do it the Easy Way
Surrounded by love, somehow led astray
We’re all gonna die and vanish someday
I need some assistance to wash it away
Can’t keep it inside

Do it the Easy Way
Do it the Easy Way
Today I’m going the Easy Way
Do it the Easy Way
Let’s do it the Easy Way
I wanna do it the Easy Way
Let’s do it the Easy Way
I wanna do it the Easy Way
I wanna do it the easy way
You can help me do it the easy way
Together we can do it the easy way
Together we can do it the easy way
