You work hard now, to put the food on the table
You're working for the 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 yea, 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 ones immune now, from a world of problems
No ones 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 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.
