lyrics

figure eights are never static
nasty habits the hardest broken

cigarettes are cinematic
doesn't mean you should take up smoking

telling lies is problematic
falsehoods set the stage for choking

desperate lives are led by addicts
truer words were never spoken


everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that


cruel behavior brings lasting damage
broken psyche brings cruel behavior

fucking bully eats knuckle sandwich
self defense is your only savior

in the end only love will manage
to defeat those who choose to hate us

in the meantime we must be savage
fight to death those who violate us


everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that


no amount of stuff will ever fill that hole inside
besides you cannot take said items with you when you die
why not live for love never for status
free love - love is free - and that means gratis
does not cost a thing
does not go bling
or ring-a-ding
but will make you sing
and give you wings
set you free from that to which you cling
worth more than anything
the thing is that there is no end to what good love will bring

everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that
everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that


winks are creepy you shouldn't do it
eyes should be either closed or open

even if you're just being friendly
feels a bit like you're into gropin'

space is valuable should be respected
especially that which belongs to others

fragile minds will likely be infected
time to take care of all sisters and brothers


everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that


holding onto anger and resentment
never helps a body or a mind
or a soul don't you know
gratitude will bring contentment
honesty will bring integrity
eventually serenity
woe is me
why does it take so long for me to see
what is right in front of me
but then of course that's exactly what we're here for
life is just for learning how to be


everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if everybody knew that
everybody knows that
wouldn't it be nice if I could come to know that
