"That's the way the ..." in lyrics

Lily Allen - Everything's Just Wonderful

Do you think,

Everything, Everyone, is going mental,
It seems to me we’re spiralling
Outta control and it’s inevitable,

Trailerpark - Poverty is driving the youth to pop music

Try to put things into perspective (ey, ey), folks, that doesn't make much of a difference
I used to play instruments (yeah), today I'm being instrumentalized (instrumentalized - "so what?")
Using cheap tricks to make a fortune with tracks (money, money)
My summer hit gets released by Christmas - that's the way the cookie crumbles

[Chorus: Alligatoah]
