Everybody knows the good guys lost
眾人皆知好人已不常存
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
眾人皆知有人在幕後操縱著勝負
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
窮者益窮,富者益富
That's how it goes
事情就是這樣發展的
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
眾人皆知大水正在從漏洞滲進船隻中
Everybody knows that the captain lied

Like their father or their dog just died
