WHAT'S IT LIKE?
(Music:  "What It's Like", Everlast)

We've all seen the face, we believe Berg Katze is kind of strange
Sometimes it's a man, sometimes it's a woman, depends on the Change
It's easy to hate what you don't understand, ain't no big surprise
We can laugh when he fails, we can grin when he's beaten, we can cheer when he dies
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues

Chorus:
Then you really might know what it's like
Then you really might know what it's like
Then you really might know what it's like
Then you really might know what it's like

There was a chick named Jun met a guy named Ken, and she fell in love
He was brave, he was handsome, he was everything she'd been dreaming of
Now six years later, he treats her just like she's one of the guys
And at night all alone, sometimes she puts her face in her pillow and cries

She can't understand why Ken doesn't seem to know where to start
And he can't explain how he doesn't feel worthy to offer his heart
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in their shoes
Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose

(Chorus)

I've seen a rich man beg
I've seen a good man sin
I've seen the Eagle fly
I've seen a loser win
And a sad man grin
I've seen the Condor die

I've seen the good side of bad
And the downside of up
And had the weirdest luck
I laughed at BotP
G-Force wasn't bad
But Eagle Riders sucked

I have a lot of friends and I got them all hooked on this birdsuit show
You know where it ends, it usually depends on where you go

I knew this guy named Joe 
Who liked to gun his car, used to speed 'round the track 
He took a one way trip out to Cross Karacolm
And he ain't comin' back
Because late one night there was a big old fight and Joe lost his head
Some Galactor thugs hit him with 300 slugs and he wound up dead

Now his loyal teammates are caught in the midst of all of this pain
You know it comes that way
At least that's what they say when you play the game
God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose

Then you really might know what it's like
Then you really might know what it's like
Then you really might know what it's like...to have to lose
