Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long-stem rose
Leonard Cohen ‘Everybody Knows’
Leonard Cohen was someone who I only grew to truly appreciate in recent years, though this was the first song of is that I became aware of many years earlier (in Atom Egoyan’s 1994 movie ‘Exotica’). Cohen’s lyrics are masterful and the above song reflects how many people in the UK and US (and elsewhere) feel at the moment.
There is only one person I can nominate in a post with words by a Montreal legend – another marvelous native of Montreal. Dominique Nancy of 3C Style.
