Everybody Knows

lyrics

(inexact lyrics)

There was a time before they came
And we never had to worry then.
There was a time when we were alone
And we weren't being watched.

Electric hums from places unseen
Having to wonder where they could be
Ready to leap and crush us in silence
I yearn for before we were watched.

Everybody knows
Everything is out in the open
Everybody knows
What the watchers have silently spoken.
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
So we speak in quiet tones
And know we're never alone.

My father cursed them
And when he loaded his gun,
He cursed himself and was gone.
We never saw him again but we know what had to have happened.

Everybody knows
Everything is out in the open
Everybody knows
What the watchers have silently spoken.
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
So we speak in quiet tones
And know we're never alone.

There was a time when
You wouldn't get taken away.
And when you'd speak your mind,
Whatever, you had something to say.

There was a time before this all came to pass.
In the old days, we could freely pass
No vicious masters to check you and your card
I wish I'd known then that life would be so hard.

Everybody knows
Everything is out in the open
Everybody knows
What the watchers have silently spoken.
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
So we speak in quiet tones
And know we're never alone.
