Everybody Knows - the 2017 Democratic Fight Song

Right wing talking heads say we're dead, apathetic, floundering, indifferent, a lost cause, forlorn hope, extinct.
Well we're dormant true, but really none of the above; no sense in spitting in the wind, let trumpism run its course, we'll resurrect next year, as the political pendulum swings high.

Leonard Cohen, Montreal Canadian died last year, more known for songs Hallelujah & Suzanne (takes you down to a place by the river) ie Judy Collins, wrote the lyrics for the current democrat 'fight' song for this year - a good song sung, worth a listen:

Everybody Knows
Leonard Cohen

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 {antiquated electoral college}
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
