"The Way It Is" ... by Bruce Hornsby

This song deals with the Civil Rights Movement in the United States.
The line in the lyrics that mentions "The law passed in '64" is the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The law was supposed to prohibit discrimination in public places, the government and employment.

The lyrics in this song deal with the need to resist complacency
and never resign yourself to racial injustice as the status quo.
