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

Everybody knows the boat is leaking
Everybody knows the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
Everybody talkin' into their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stemmed rose
Everybody knows

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

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discrete
There were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
But everybody knows

Everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
Everybody knows that you live forever
When you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Oh, by Joe still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
Everybody knows

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

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

Everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows it moving fast
Everybody knows that's the naked man and woman
Just a shining artifact of the past
And everybody knows that the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

Everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on
To the beach at Malibu
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
Everybody knows

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

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

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