    Lyrics

    Everybody knows the dice are loaded,
    Everybody rolls with theire fingers crossed,
    Everybody knows that the war is over,
    Everybody knows the good guys lost,
    Everybody knows the fight is 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 that the captain lied,
    Everybody got this broken feeling,
    like they're father or they're dog just died,
    Everybody talking to 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 discreet
    There were so many people you just had to meet
    Without your clothes, and everybody knows

    Everybody knows that it's now or never
    Everybody knows that's it's me or you
    Everybody knows that you live forever
    When you turn a line or two
    Everybody knows the deal is rotten
    Old Black Joe's still picking cotton
    For your ribbons and bows, and everybody knows

    Everybody knows,
    Everybody knows,
    That's the way it goes,
    Everybody knows,

    Everybody knows,
    Yeah Everybody knows,
    That's the way it goes,
    Everybody knows,

    Everybody knows that the plague is coming
    Everybody knows it's moving fast
    Everybody knows that's a naked man and woman
    Just a shining on a fact of the past

    Everybody knows the scene is dead
    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 top of Calvary
    To the beach in 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 goes,
    Everybody knows,

    Everybody knows,
    Yeah 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,
