The Way It Is Lyrics

The Way It Is by Zero Down  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Way It Is My father told me
Son, it's OK to have ideals,
but beliefs against your government well that won't pay your bills.
You can raise your fists and publicly resist
but in the end corruption still exists.

(Chorus)
And no protest song will ever change the world.
When everybody does exactly as they're told.
In the end every man works for what is his.
You can fight the world, but that's just how it is

You're words are not meaningless to me,
I feel their honesty but it's my life that I gotta figure out for me.
It's what I've always done, not what I have become
and I know the consequences that will come.
And if I never reach the world or speak to people's souls
it's a passion that will not die as I grow old.
It's what I choose to do
it may not work for you but to myself I know I must be true.

(Chorus)
And no protest song will ever change the world.
When everybody does exactly as they're told.
In the end every man works for what is his.
You can fight the world, but that's just how it is

I am not ashamed to stand right where I've stood.
My beliefs they are unchanged because I believe they should.
And I'll measure my success one word at a time.
If the truth is spoken will I stand the test of time.
