Original video
I said what you wanted to hear
And what I wanted to say
So I will take it back
And all the dishes intact?
Let them be broken, broken

It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
You remain selfless, cold and composed

You've done me no favor
To call and be nice
Telling me I
Can take anything I like

You don't owe me to be so polite
You've done no wrong
You've done no wrong
Get out of my sight

It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
You remain
Selfless, cold and composed

Come on baby, now throw me a right to the chin
Don't just stare like you never cared, I know you did
But you just smiled like a bank teller
Blankly telling me, "Have a nice life."

Come on baby and throw me a right to the chin
Just one sign that could show me that you gave a shit
But you just smile politely
And I grow weaker and I

Said what you wanted to hear
And what I wanted to say
So I will take it back

It's easy to be
Easy and free
When it doesn't mean anything
When it doesn't mean anything

You can take anything
You can take anything
You're so selfless, cold
You're so selfless, cold
You're so selfless, cold and composed
