They Know

"They Know" - Third Cat

I'll keep pretending I'm the man
that you wish to think I am.
But they've seen the video
so they know it's all for show.

If you look too close,
it's all dark.

If you look too close,
it's all dark.

If you look too close,
it's all dark.

(with just a spark you can see the mark)

I'll keep pretending I'm the man
that you wish to think I am.
But they've seen the video
so they know it's all for show.

I'll keep pretending I'm the man

They know, they know, but what can they do?

I’m standing at a party with a whiskey in my hand
Talking to opinionated guests
Everyone is wise to what is really going on
Everyone agree’s it’s all a mess

The people in the hallway are deconstructing media
The people in the kitchen are discussing CNN
The people in the dining room are quoting Wikipedia
The people in the den are watching Fox and Friends
Oh, no

They know, they know, but what can they do?

I’m talking to a stranger and it’s all about a war
And all the right opinions are at hand
But everyone’s too loud and it’s impossible to hear
And maybe it’s too hard to understand

I’m waiting for the subway with a coffee in my hand
Trying to shake the headache from last night
Everyone is looking at their personal device
Everyone knows something isn’t right

The President‘s been tweeting about something that’s upsetting him
The world is taking bets on what the man is going to do
Suspicions are afoot about who’s aiding and abetting him
The war on truth is over, everybody know it’s true

They know, they know, but what can they do?

They Know
Pigfarmer Jr

Come in, you're welcome to close the door
Don't get many visitors anymore
They all know how to get here
But they never seem to show
They know

They said I'd like this home just fine
But the nurses won't let me have my wine
They know what it means to me
But they said it had to go
They know

Watcha been knowin'
Where you been goin'
Since I talked to you?
It's been a few.

I'm glad you came to visit
I sure do miss it
Make sure everybody knows
I love them so

I hope you know I appreciate your time
And you have been so much more than kind
I hope you know I love you kids
More than I can show
I hope you know

Watcha been knowin'
Where you been goin'
Since I talked to you?
It's been a few.

I'm glad you came to visit
I sure do miss it
Make sure everybody knows
I love them so
I hope they know
Make sure they know
They know

They Know
Ujn and Reve

Scouring the land they will seek you out
Burn the whole world just to hunt you down

Assimilate & obfuscate
Don't you forget. Never look back.

Sanctuary that I just cannot grant
Keep secrets silent it's the only way

To draw up the dark veil and let the pieces fall
Then we can lay dormant for a thousand years

Hide in the shadows...
Underground

You only know what I want you to know
And I know that's not what you wanted to know
But they know
They know everything

I didn't mean to keep you in the dark
But I couldn't risk having them make you out

Don't let emotions be the compromise
They won't be able to keep you safe at night

I couldn't bear having them take you...
Having them take you... Take you from me

You only know what I want you to know
And I know that's not what you wanted to know
But they know
They know everything
