I've been thinking about
What you said last night
And for all your fine words
You still don't have it right

'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change
You can scream at me but the powers that be
Won't ever hear your voice
'Cause they're lost in their own importance
No, they'll never hear your voice

'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change it
Now I've heard all your stories
Of how the few can be strong
How you'll fight to the end
Just to prove me wrong

'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change it
So don't come cryin' to me if your
Fanciful schemes don't turn out like you planned
'Cause you're chasing after something
That keeps slipping through your hand
