I'm sick of chasing after things
I'd rather them chase after me
Keeping up is bound to wear me down
There's a million ways to skin a cat

I put my choices in a hat
Picked a few and threw the bad ones out
Well, I know now

So if you want me
You better knock me down
'Cause I ain't easy
And this ain't hallowed ground

I've been thinking 'bout old Cain and Able
Sittin' at a breakfast table
Talking 'bout the way things used to be

Able looked at Cain and said
"All that shit was in your head"
I'd like to think that Cain was hard to please
Well, I know now

So if you want me
You better knock me down
'Cause I ain't easy
And this ain't hallowed ground

She said, "No one will love you more than me"
I looked at her, she looked at me
I think she's waiting for me to believe

I wish that love was all it took
I'd fall into you if I could
Hoping for a graceful recovery
Well, I know now

So if you want me
You better knock me down
'Cause I ain't easy
And this ain't hallowed ground
