The Way It Is

This song is by The Tunics and appears on the album Somewhere In Somebody's Heart (2008).

Once upon a time in a town no different to ours
Where the stars don't shine and the birds don't sing
And the only thoughts are that of stealing cars
Or taking the next phone that rings
You pull together in different ways
Just to make it through the day
And the people rise where the sun don't set
And that's about as good as it gets
But that's the way it is...

Here's a story of a man and his volatile crimes
He makes a quick getaway as the church bell chimes
Looks down at his watch as his life flies by
As the mother's they scream and they cry

He's never really looked in the mirror before
He's afraid of what he might see
You know you get what you pay for
And you don't get nothing for free
In this life

He's a short young man, living a short young life
He wants to pay for his life of strife
He knows what he's doing and he knows it's wrong
But hey, it gives you reason to sing your song

He's never really looked in the mirror before
He's afraid of what he might see
You know you get what you pay for
And you don't get nothing for free

But that's the way it is...

And the boys in blue, well what do they do
If it doesn't hurt you, then it doesn't affect you
And these cunts hang out in groups on ten
They like to hurt you when you hang out with your friends

They never really look in the mirror before
They're afraid of what they might see
You know you get what you pay for
And you don't get nothing for free

But that's the way it is

I can do what I wanna do
I can see what I wanna see
I can live how I wanna live
I can be who I wanna be
I can go where I wanna go
I can know what I wanna no
I'll be who I wanna be
See who I wanna see
