A needle of Hope
amid a haystack of Chaos.

I heard this song as the intro to Jack Blood's show on Patriot TV today. Lyrics hand-typed, not copied.

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded: 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...
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking: Everybody knows 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, 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.
That's half of it, but I'm tired now. ::sleep:: Time spent composing this document: 17 minutes.
