“How It Is”

Beauty queens and libertines and beggars on their benches
They go to sleep and dream like you and I
Billionaires behind their walls and soldiers in their trenches
We’re all just looking for a reason why

To get out of bed in the morning
To fight off the urge to just go call it quits
‘Cuz sometimes reality is boring
And it’s a shame, but it’s just how it is

Everybody’s gotta live (yes, they do)
And everybody’s gonna die (die die)
Everybody try to have a, a good time
I think you know the reason why

So pour a drink, or have a smoke, cuz we all got our vices
Just doing what we need to to get by
Wear a dress, your Sunday best, whatever you feel nice in
Cuz God knows we all need a reason why

To get out of bed in the morning
To fight off the urge to just go call it quits
‘Cuz sometimes reality is boring
And it’s a shame, but it’s just how it is

Everybody’s gotta live (yes, they do)
And everybody’s gonna die (die die)
Everybody try to have a, a good time
I think you know the reason why

Taxi cars and prison bars, and history repeating
We build our little boxes, you and I
So cross your heart or read your cards, whatever you believe in
‘Cuz God knows we all need a reason why

To get out of bed in the morning
To fight off the urge to just go call it quits
‘Cuz sometimes reality is boring
And it’s a shame, but it’s just how it is

Everybody’s gotta live (yes, they do)
And everybody’s gonna die (die die)
Everybody try to have a, a good time
I think you know the reason why

To get out of bed in the morning
To fight off the urge to just go call it quits
‘Cuz sometimes reality is boring
And it’s a shame, but it’s just how it is
