"The Way It Is" as written by Tony Smith, Jay Stollman and Peter Primamore....
We'll build you up, tear you down
To live like we used to
Believe in it while you can
Before it all lets you down
We'll crush your narrow opinion
To tell it how it is
It's out of date, out of date
And that's just the way it is

We've got you right, got you right
Force everything you need
You live by a easy life
Why don't you let it in?
A culture shock, culture shock
Well tell it to the police
You're out of date, watch it out
And that's just the way it is

I've got ideas
You've got more fear to revel in

It all got pushed out in a rush to your, rush to your head
Can't tell us what to think
It's out of date, out of date
And that's just the way it is
We've got enough
We've got a right to be, right to be wrong
Well come on and stop me
Well everybody says around me
Why don't you let it in?

We'll build you up, tear you down
To live like we used to
Believe in it while you can
Before it will let you down
It amounts to nothing
It's a culture shock, culture shock
Well tell it to the police
You're out of date, out of date
And that's just the way it is

Yeah that's just the way it is
Yeah that's just the way it is
Well that's just the way it is
And that's just the way it is
Will I know?
