[Chorus]

And it seems to me to be so wrong hey

If you throw love against the wall
It comes back to you
And if you throw hate against the wall
It's gonna follow you
So what we gonna do to ease the pain
How can we ease the pain
Tell me, what are we gonna do, to ease the pain yeah
Ease the pain
Tell me, how can we ease the pain
Got to fight the fight
