Powerman 5000 – The Way It Is lyrics

Well don't blame me
Cause it's not my world
I didn't make the mess you got,

You get what ya give
You give what ya get
And sometimes it's not a lot,

From Boston to New York
La and Tokyo
People all the same to me,
They all need to stop
Take a look at themselves
And find more than misery,
Yeah! (Go)

That's the way
The way it is,
That's the way,
The way that we live

Don't back down
Don't ever give in, now
That's the way that it is,

Now take it or leave it (Hey)
Change it or beat it(Hey)
I know just where it's at,

You can run, you can hide
But you never realize
You're living just like a rat,

The cops and the killers
Some saints and some sinners
People that you'll never know,

They oughta make a story
For death or for glory
Sometimes you gotta go,
(Got ta go!)
(Go)

That's the way
The way it is,
That's the way
The way that we live

Don't back down
Don't ever give in, now
That's the way that it is

That's the way
The way it is,
That's the way
The way that we live,

Don't back down
Don't ever give in, now
That's the way that it is

(Come on, damn!)
Check this out,
You knowing those streets
Like the back of your hand
But still there ain't a person
That could ever understand
The more that you look
The less that you've found
People everywhere but no one's around
(C'mon)

That's the way
The way it is,
That's the way
The way that we live,

Don't back down
Don't ever give in, now
That's the way that it is

That's the way
The way it is,
That's the way
The way that we live

Don't back down
Don't ever give in
That's the way that it is

(Al-al-alright!)

That's the way,
That's the way
Don't ever give in, now

That's the way,
That's the way
Don't ever give in, now

That's the way
Don't back down
That's the way
Don't ever give in, now
