Desperate Measures - That's Just How It Is Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Desperate Measures the Musical - That's Just How It Is Lyrics

Song was written by David Friedman & Peter Kellogg.

The more I live, the more I see
Humankind ain’t kind.
Justice never was too just.
And it sure ain’t blind.
And god forgot to tell us why
Some get to live while others die.
That’s just how it is.

One man plays the part of king.
Another man scrapes by.
One man’s children get to eat.
Another’s get to cry.
The one rule is there are no rules,
And those who think there are are fools.
That’s just how it is.

You can’t fight every battle.
Most days you muddle through.
And many times when good men fall,
Ain’t nothin’ you can do.

But now and then you get a chance
To set a thing aright.
Sometimes just by speakin’ up.
Sometimes you have to fight.
That’s when you got to take a side.
And give that chance a long, hard ride.
And if you fail, at least you tried.
That’s just how it is.
That’s just how it is.
