That's the Way It Is

That's the Way It Is lyrics

That's the Way It Is

PRISONERS
Now we know where we stand
There is no no-man?s land
Trust is torn a line is drawn
And that?s the way it is!

Make your move, take your side
There is no place to hide
You?re out on a limb, now sink or swim
?Cos that?s the way it is!

HELEN
What the hell?s the commotion? Well?

SYLVIA
We?ve got a swinger. Ma?am. Rachel Hicks.

HELEN
Oh no?

SYLVIA
Mr Fenner?s cutting the corpse down now, if you want to take a look?
Right you lot ? back to your cells. Now. Move it!

YVONNE
We?re not going anywhere.

SHELL
Ain?t our fault poor Rachel?s dead, is it?

HELEN
Listen. I know you?ve all had a terrible shock.
But you?re not going to solve anything by kicking off.

NIKKI
What do you expect? Rachel?s dead.

YVONNE
That kid was right as rain last night. Why would she suddenly go and top herself?

HELEN
I assure you ? there will be a full investigation into how and why this happened.

NIKKI
It happened because she was banged up in prison. (pointing at Jim)
With bastards like him on the loose.

JULIE J
His last one ended up down the muppet wing.

JULIE S
Yeah. He?s the one should be swinging!

PRISONERS
No matter how you try to sweep us out of sight
We will not let this day go by
All of your might
Cannot fight what is right
And that?s the way it is now
Bring it on down

HELEN
I want you all to go back to your cells. Quietly and calmly.

THE NUMBER ONE
What is going on here?

YVONNE
A bloody crime. And you?re not going to get away with it.

JIM
Miss Stewart?s given you a Governor?s order here.
Return to your cells now or the riot team?s coming in.

HELEN
Wait. Wait. Nikki ? can I talk to you, please?

SHELL
Oi, bitch. Who?s side you on?

HELEN
I?m asking to talk to Nikki on behalf of you all!

YVONNE
Then talk to us all. Explain to us why Rachel?s dead.

PRISONERS
?Cos if you think we?ll walk away
As if nothing really matters
Then there is nothing more to say?

JIM
Ask Wade. That?s who Rachel was scared of.

NIKKI
Go screw yourself, Fenner!

PRISONERS & OFFICERS
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
That?s the way it is!

Bring it on down
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
Bring it on down
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
Bring it on down
That?s the way it is!
Come on, come on.
That?s the way it is!
That?s the way it is!

PRISONERS
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on

JIM
Get to your cells now! Stay back!

SYLVIA
Move it!

HELEN
Please don?t do this.

YVONNE
Better tool up, girls!

THE NUMBER ONE
Report ?Situation out of Control?.
