"The Way Things Are," alternatively "The Unwavering Truth," is a song in Death Note: The Musical.
As L moves forward with the case, he resolves to uncover the truth, even if it means accepting incredible things like the existence of shinigami.
The song is reprised just before L's final confrontation with Light at Daikoku Wharf. Again L sings about solving the case and defeating Kira, but between his verses, Light's voice is heard reciting the manner of L's death that's already been written into the Death Note.
This is L's second solo song, the first being "The Game Begins."
The song was originally written in English, but an English-language version has not been released.
The Japanese version of the song is titled "Yuruganu Shinjitsu" (揺るがぬ真実), which translates to "The Unwavering Truth," "The Unshakable Truth," or "The Unchanging Truth."
