This song is by Gentle Giant and appears on the album Octopus (1972).

All in all each man in all men
All men in each man
He can see she can't, she can see she can
See whatever, whatever
You may know what I don't know
But not that I don't know it
And I can't tell you so you will

To tell me all man in all men
All men in each man
He can see she can't, she can see she can
See whatever, whatever
You may know what I don't know
But not that I don't know it
And I can't tell you so you will have to tell me all

It hurts him to think that she is
Hurting her by him being hurt to think
That she thinks he is hurt by making her
Feel guilty at hurting him by her thinking
She wants him to want her
He wants her to want him to get him to want him
To get him to want her she pretends

He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid
He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid
He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid (permutations)

You may know what I don't know
But not that I don't know it
And I can't tell you so you will

You may know what I don't know
But not that I don't know it
And I can't tell you so you will have to tell me all

I get what I deserve
I deserve what I get
I have it so I deserve it
I deserve it for I have it
I get what I deserve
What I deserve what I get
I have it so I deserve

He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid
He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid
He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid
He tries to make her afraid by not being afraid

Lyrics NotesEdit

R. D. Laing, an eminent psychologist, has stimulated us by his intriguing logical poetic riddles into composing this latter-day madrigal - and something of a musical jigsaw.
