Everybody Knows

This song is by The Duhks and appears on the album The Duhks (2005).

This song is a cover of "Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen.
And everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
And everybody knows that the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor and the rich stay rich
That's how it goes
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the ship is sinking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody's got this broken feeling
Like their dog or their daddy just died

Everybody's talking to their pockets
And everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
And everybody knows

And 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

And everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
And everybody knows

And everybody knows 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
But 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 movin' fast
Everybody knows a naked man and woman
Just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
There's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
Just what everybody knows

And everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
And 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 beaches of Malibu
Everybody knows it's comin' apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
And everybody knows
