​Down Here (With the Rest of Us)

This song is by Social Distortion and appears on the album White Light, White Heat, White Trash (1996).

You work hard, now, to put the food on the table
You're working for a man, who don't even know your name
That's the way that it goes when you're down here with the rest of us

You might lose, now, your beautiful children
Your happy home, yeah, and your beautiful wife
That's the way that it goes when you're down here with the rest of us

You'll suffer hard, now, as you bury your loved ones
You'll suffer hard, now, when you lose your best friend
That's the way that it goes when you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes, and I know how you feel

No one's immune, now, to a world of problems
No one's exempt, now, from a world of pain
That's the way that it goes when you're down here with the rest of us

I try hard, now, to do the right thing
Yet I wonder, why do I still do what's wrong
That's the way that it goes when you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes, and I know how you feel
