Easy to Sleep when Your Dead - Of Montreal

It's easy to sleep when you're dead
But you're unable to touch your loved ones
Give them kisses or see them smile at you
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
But you give up your whole life's work
And you can't reverse the bad things that you did

While alive you still have hope
That when you die you are dead
And you know for sure if it's better
If it's better, if it's better
I hope it's better

It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Though you can't feel the warmth of summer
Smell the flowers of spring, or drink cider in the fall
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Though it's too late to say the words
You wanted them to hear when you didn't have the nerve

You get to spend eternity thinking about your life
Think of all the time that is
Eternity is forever, is forever, is forever
What will I do forever?
At this time there is nothing you can change
You can only sit and watch and hope they understand
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Because there isn't anything else to do but sleep
I feel sorry for the dead
