Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fights was fixed
So the poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows the captain lied
Everybody's got this broken feeling

Just like their father or their dog just died
And everybody's talking to their pockets
And everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stemmed rose
Yeah, everybody knows

And everybody knows,
Yeah everybody knows
That's just how it goes
Yeah everybody knows

And everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows you really do
And everybody knows you've been faithful
Well, give or take a night or two
And everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes...
Yeah, and everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Oh, when you've done a line or two
And everybody knows that the deal is rotten
Black Joe is still picking cotton
For your ribbons and your bows
Yeah, and everybody knows

And everybody knows,
Yeah everybody knows
That's just how it goes
Yeah everybody knows

Everybody knows
Everybody knows
That's just how it goes
Everybody knows

Well everybody knows that the plague is coming
And everybody knows that it's moving fast
And everybody knows that a naked man and woman
They're just a shining artifact of the past
And everybody knows, this scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter above your bed
That will disclose, what everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calgary
To the beach at Malibu
Well everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this sacred heart
Before it blows
Yeah and everybody knows
Everybody knows
Yeah and everybody knows
Yeah everybody knows
