"Down Here (With the Rest of Us)" as written by and Michael Ness....
You work hard now
To put the food on the table
You're working for the men
Who don't even know your name

That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
You might lose now
Your beautiful children

Your happy home, yeah
And your beautiful wife
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us

You'll suffer hard now
As you bury
Your loved ones
You'll suffer hard now

When you lose your best friend
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes
And I know how you feel

No ones immune now
To a world of problems
No ones exempt now
From a world of pain

That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us

I try hard now
To do the right thing
Yet I wonder
Why I still do what's wrong

That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes
And I know how you feel
