life can get so fucked
a stroke of bad luck
but sometimes you just gotta keep movin' on
and what took me so long?
been playin' these songs
over & over to kick-start my inspiration
whether livin' at home or livin' out on your own
it doesn't matter
we all feel suffocated sometimes
and we only smoke cigarettes
because we wanna have control
over a little of the poison we are fed

that's just the way it goes sometimes

when I was young I was a shotgun
shooting my rhetoric at anyone I saw
now I smoke cannabis and trippin', hell, I never miss
'cause it makes me question what I've been told
I'm a little bit older, a little bit wiser
and I like to wear my darkness on my sleeve
'cause it's the pain in our own dark pasts
that truly connects us all

that's just the way it goes sometimes

they've always said we were wrong
but we just got crushed under their iron fist
we always knew we were strong
and we will live this way 'til our dying breath
this movement's hip-to-hip, shoulder-to-shoulder
just let them try and stand in our way
'cause when they fall, and they will fall
we will scream this anthem at the top of our lungs

and the people cry: "revolution is on it's way"

that's just the way it goes sometimes
