Everybody knows Leonard Cohen is dead at the age of 83

We need more Leonard Cohen's.
He's as relevant now as ever. 
More so now than ever before

RIP Leonard 

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that 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

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
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
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

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

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

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
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 moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What 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 beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

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

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

Everybody knows

I had heard of him since way back but didn't go out of my way to listen until TW endorsed him and I heard a song of his in a movie.

I love this song. The first time I heard it was a cover version by Concrete Blonde (which is awesome) because it was on the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack. He recently did the theme song for the 2nd season of True Detective. The show was terrible but I liked listening to Cohen sing.

What can I say, other than he was a Canadian.

So was Bryan Adams

B.A. really was a decent musician with good songs. I don't know why I singled him out.

mulderfan said...

So is Neil Young who is one of the things you have in common with the NGC. The other thing is your mutual obsession with my sparkling personality.

q1605 said...

Piss sparkles too if it catches the light right.

Sorry that's a mean thing to say. I was channeling the spirit of your brofer.

A bit like when my baby bro told me life's a shit sandwich. Eat it or die.
I figure he checks in here to make sure I haven't beat him to Hell and have already sparkled the pants off the Devil.
Wait, Barb probably beat me to it!

As long as she keeps her dick beaters on a dick I don't have to worry about anything else.
