EVERYBODY KNOWS

Everybody knows I’m a stranger to everybody;

You can’t get deep, if you can’t get close

But if I show you the gift,

Your head will never stop spinning.

That’s something everybody in the family knows.

It’ll have you whispering hymns

In the middle of the night,

 Intoxicating nonsense will populate

Your waking thoughts.

I’ll be your friend, do anything you ask

Have long talks, and the years will pass…

But you can’t get deep, if you can’t get close.

I’m a stranger to everybody, that’s something you know.

I could love you so much, you’ll never know how it goes,

Because I live in my head.

And that’s better for us both;

If I show you the gift,

 You might never get over it.

It’ll never grow old…

It will leave you sweeping gold dust into Pyramid formations,

In service of the Pharaoh

Whose return was foretold.

Everybody knows I’m a stranger to everybody,

You can’t get deep

If you can’t get close.

If I show you the gift,

It will change you;

Get close.
