Everybody knows that the dice are loaded


Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed


Everybody knows the war is over


Everybody knows the good guys lost


Everybody knows the fight was fixed


The poor stay poor, the rich get rich


That's how it goes


Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking


Everybody knows that the captain lied


Everybody got this broken feeling


Like their father or their dog just died


Everybody talking to their pockets


Everybody wants a box of chocolates


And a long-stem rose


Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby


Everybody knows that you really do


Everybody knows that you've been faithful


Oh, give or take a night or two


Everybody knows you've been discreet


But there were so many people you just had to meet


Without your clothes


Everybody knows

Everybody knows


Everybody knows


That's how it goes


Everybody knows

Everybody knows


Everybody knows


That's how it goes


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


When you've done a line or two


Everybody knows the deal is rotten


Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton


For your ribbons and bows


And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming


Everybody knows that it's moving fast


Everybody knows that the naked man and woman


Are just a shining artifact of the past


Everybody knows the scene is dead


But there's gonna be a meter on 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 Calvary


To the beach of Malibu


Everybody knows it's coming apart


Take one last look at this Sacred Heart


Before it blows


Everybody knows
