The Way Things Are lyrics

The Way Things Are

[L]
Every fact that I thought I knew
Is subverting me
Deserting me
Every truth I was sure was true
Is on shaky ground
Has come unwound

What if the things I see
Are not as they appear
Are impossible, yet clear
How can I deny it?

Always only believed what was
Right in front of me
What I could see
Shinigami are real because
It's the only way
The only way

When all other explanations
Really don't explain
No matter how insane
You are left with only

The cold, hard truth
Can't shut it down
You can't change it
You can't turn it off
Or turn it 'round
Can't rearrange it

The cold, hard truth
A ragged scar
To remind you never forget
The way things are

I won't let who I used to be
How I used to think
Get me out of sync
I'll turn into a different me
Not so cynical
Not so clinical

Light is willing to risk it all
Defying all the odds
If I must, I'll fight the gods
'Til our war is over

The cold, hard truth
Can't lock it out
You can't change it
True or false, no
Shadow of a doubt
Can't rearrange it

The cold, hard truth
Is my north star
So I know I'll live and I'll die
The way things are

Frame by frame
I see this movie in black and white
Shot by shot
Minute by minute, just me and Light

The cold, hard truth
The way things are
I can't change it
Even if the truth
Seems too bizarre
I can't change it

The cold, hard truth
Is my north star
So no matter what he might try
Shake the heavens
Shatter the sky
I know we must both live and die
The way things are
