"So It Goes" as written by and Simon/salisury Jones....
Life
Roll my die
Change this life
You said this movie was mine
But now you go and change your mind
This is my life
So it goes
You come in on your own in this life
You know you leave on your own
'Cause I don't need no cause
When my feelings fall
You showed me things I didn't want to see
I don't believe that love is free
Sure fine way to treat a man

So it goes
You come in on your own in this life
And you know you leave on your own

Life
This is my Life
So it goes
You come into this life on your own
You know you'll leave on your own
Life
This is my life
So it goes
You come into this life on your own
You know you leave
I'm just a poor little wifeless fella
I'm just a poor little wifeless fella
I'm just a poor little wifeless fella
I'm just a poor little wifeless fella
Another drink and I won't miss her
Another drink and I won't miss her
Another drink and I won't miss her
Another drink and I won't miss her

    General CommentGreat, great song and one of my favorites on A Northern Soul. To me this song is really a look at life from an introspective reflection. It's about someone who wants a change in their lives, but doesn't want to go out and force it. The real curveball in this song comes during the last part about drinking away the memory of his wife; it's a neat part. Awesome song really.

    General CommentAs a buddhist, this is a modern-telling of the noble truths.

    General CommentVonnegut's ubiquitous theme of the everyman within an indifferent universe is central to this song, I think. I'll leave it at that.
