That's Just The Way It Is Now

Album: Let the Dominoes Fall (2009)
  • Car lights flash my eyes
    Blinded, hypnotized
    Lord knows I'm living
    And I'm never coming back
    Now one generation dies
    Next one wins the prize
    And that's the big surprise
    There's demise in all of their lies
    It's never to late too realize

    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now
    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now

    I walk through the cemetery
    It's all empty
    Now I put a rose
    On the grave of a fallen hero
    And I look out into the wild
    All I see is emptiness
    So much loneliness

    I just want forgiveness

    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now
    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now

    When dreams fade away
    It won't be long
    End up singing the same old song
    What went right, what went wrong
    Bad times here, good times gone
    First rule they always sell
    Second rule never tell
    Third rule straight to hell
    White collar criminals
    Living in jail
    it's all that they gave
    Sold your soul to get paid
    Buy you end up in an early grave
    Your own neck you can't save
    It's a letter that you can't send
    It's a wound that will never mend
    Pain level peaks at ten
    Some stand out some stand in

    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now
    That's just the way things are
    That's just the way it is now Writer/s: TIMOTHY (USA) ARMSTRONG, LARS FREDERIKSEN, ROGER MATTHEW FREEMAN
