Tell me everything you heard
Tell me what you know
Is it really true about them
Is it really so
Do you believe everything we hear
And pass the news along
Until the day when the shit's about us
We won't understand their song
So we have nothing better to do with our time
And we feel that we must inquire
And we pay too much mind to what's not our affair
If we tell what he heard then we're liars
We know nothing at all until we stand
Far away from it all, as far as we can
My throat is sore from all these words
We know nothing at all
Will we
When will we learn
When will we learn
Yes we all are guilty of
What we say we despise
Even I have been known to
Tell a couple thousand lies
LIES...
Could this be yes that we are the topic
Of everyone's conversation asking
Who said this who said that is he fine is she fat
Step back and you'll see me laughing
We know nothing at all until we stand
Far away from it all, as far as we can
My throat is sore from all these words
We know nothing at all
Will we
We know nothing at all until we stand
Far away from it all, as far as we can
My throat is sore from all these words
We know nothing at all
Will we
We know nothing at all until we stand
Far away from it all, as far as we can
My throat is sore from all these words
We know nothing at all
Will we
We know nothing at all until we stand
Far away from it all, as far as we can
My throat is sore from all these words
We know nothing at all
Will we learn

    General CommentThis song is absolutely fantastic! I can't believe no-one has posted any comments on it. On the meaning, I think it's about our obbsession with knowing about other people's lives; be they famous or just people we know. You can see this with programmes like that stupily pointless Big Brother which luckily has just finished it's 3 series here in England.
