If You Know You Know

This will be the opening track on my upcoming original album (title and kickstarter announcement coming soon!) so if you like to be surprised when you hit play on a new album, don’t listen to this please.


Did you you come to me
To hear songs of peace
Or do you want to know the truth about this world?
It’s bleak sometimes, it’s cold
But there’s one thing I can assure you of:

I’m in the gutter with you!
And we can open our eyes and look at the stars
I’m reaching out my hand to you
Whoever you are!

If you know you know
Life is one big joke
And we laugh at it from the palaces and slums
And we live through it until we don’t

You already know
Life is one big joke
But your nonchalance is just for show
And you’re desperate for any kind of hope

If you know you know
Life is one big joke
And our children stand upon our backs
And we wish they’ll have everything we lack
