Some people get what they ask for, then get what they deserve
But when we gotta get it too they got some nerve
People doin in the light what they used to in the dark
I been done told you bout that locker room talk
You’ze a mannish little boy, how you fit your britches?
You too damn dumb to mourn your bitches
You too damn dumb to listens to your soul
So I’ll tell you anything you wanna know and everything you don’t

I’ve known you boys for a mighty long time
You’ll give me a nickel if I give you a dime
Throw me down the stairs with your words and then smile so cruelly
Then turn around and say “We gotta stop these bullies”
You can’t take no heat but you’re standing in the kitchen
You think the nothing that you know is somehow sufficient
Flying through your chamber door was the raven and I quote
“I’ll tell you anything you wanna know and everything you don’t”

You betray the trust we need to survive
You can’t handle a queen so you’re stirring up the hive
Blues fallin down like hail from the sky
I hope to understand it better in the by and by
The afterlife ain’t a question that sticks in my mind
The way to heaven on Earth is down deep and out wide
I swear the whole truth or the truth as I know
I’ll tell you anything you want to know and everything you don’t

Baby we can’t stop fightin, but what fightin will we do?
I got my guitar case and my aim is true
Gonna sing about war, gonna sing about peace
Gonna sing about love from the west down to the east
I’ll let the art department handle what photos they’ll use
I’m goin’ down in the valley on a walk with my muse
From time to time I’ll stop by with a couple that I wrote
They’ll tell you anything you wanna know and everything you don’t
