Everybody Knows

Rufus Wainwright


Everybody knows 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, and the rich get rich
That's how it goes, and everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking, everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody's got this broken feeling like their father or their dog just died
Everybody's talking to their pockets,
Everybody wants a box of chocolates and a long stem rose
And everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby, everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful, ah, 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
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows that's how it goes, and everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows that's how it goes, and everybody knows

Everybody knows that it's now or never, everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever, ah, when you've done a line or two
And 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
And 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 in Malibu
And everybody knows it's coming apart,
Take one last look at this sacred heart before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows that's how it goes, and everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows that's how it goes, and everybody knows
