The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
Queens of the Stone Age Lyrics


Well I've got a secret, I cannot say
Blame all the movement to give it away
You've got somethin', I understand
Holding it tightly, caught on command
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in, I just cut you out

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

I look for reflections, in your face
Canine devotion, time can't erase
Out on the corner, locked in your room
I never believe them and I never assume
Still can't believe there is a lie
Promises promise, an eye for an eye
We've got something to reveal
No one can know how we feel

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell

I think you already know
How far I'd go not to say
You know the art isn't gone
And I'm taking this all to the grave

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell

I've got a secret, I cannot say
Blame all the movement to give it away
You've got somethin, I understand
Holding it tightly, caught on command
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in, I just cut you out

[chorus:]
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Look for reflections, in your face
Canine devotion, time can't erase
Out on the corner, locked in your room
I never believe them and I never assume
Still can't believe there is a lie
Promise is promise, an eye for an eye
We've got something to reveal
No one can know how we feel


I think you already know
How far I'd go not to say
You know the art isn't gone
And I'm taking my song to the grave

Bem, eu tenho um segredo, não posso dizer
Well I've got a secret, I cannot say

Culpe todo o movimento por doar
Blame all the movement to give it away

Você tem algo, eu entendo
You've got somethin', I understand

Segurando-o com força, apanhado em comando
Holding it tightly, caught on command

Salto de fé, você duvida?
Leap of faith, do you doubt?

Cortar você, eu apenas cortarei você
Cut you in, I just cut you out

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

Eu procuro reflexões, na sua cara
I look for reflections, in your face

Devoção canina, o tempo não pode apagar
Canine devotion, time can't erase

Na esquina, trancado em seu quarto
Out on the corner, locked in your room

Eu nunca acredito neles e nunca assumo
I never believe them and I never assume

Ainda não posso acreditar que há uma mentira
Still can't believe there is a lie

Promessa promessa, olho por olho
Promises promise, an eye for an eye

Temos algo a revelar
We've got something to reveal

Ninguém pode saber como nos sentimos
No one can know how we feel

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte
Don't tell

Eu acho que você já sabe
I think you already know

Até onde eu iria para não dizer
How far I'd go not to say

Você sabe que a arte não se foi
You know the art isn't gone

E eu estou levando tudo isso para o túmulo
And I'm taking this all to the grave

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça
Whatever you do

Não conte a ninguém
Don't tell anyone

O que quer que você faça

Andreea Bica

Well I've got a secret, I cannot say
A modern movement to give it away
You've got something that I understand
Hold it in tightly, caught on command
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in, I just cut you out

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Look for reflections, in your face
Canine devotion, time can't erase
Out on the corner, or locked in your room
I never believe them and I never assume
Stuck in belief, there is a lie
Promise is promise, an eye for an eye
But we've got something to reveal
No one can know how we feel

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell

I think you already know
How far I'd go not to say
You know the art isn't gone
And I'm taking a song to the grave

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell

That intro is one of rock’s most underrated intros.

Alan Smith

Smooooooth a f .

@Zngl Literal facts stated as I did state that one rarely are actually true... it's a way of saying "very, very, very, very, very often". And you knew that before commenting. Yes, I find it very, very, very, very, very often. Every day, not exaggerating. Just browse a subreddit about a video game, a band, a movie saga, it doesn't matter.
Just browse a YT comment section from a video of a highly praised yet somewhat aging song/band, or soundtrack from a movie, or whatever. You'll still see these people jumping out of nowhere saying that this heavily appreciated song from 15 years ago "is so underrated". No matter what we're talking about in entertainment trough art. It constantly happens it IS as dumb as precipitate.

Special mention to the Radiohead community, phew. "Let Down underrated", you know, so absurd it became a meme.
To the Studio Ghibli fan base too. The subreddit is a lot of fun, every single movie from the studio gets called underrated every few days. Man, even Princess Mononoke, at that point: what the fuck. People just gotta feel special and distinguished from the masses in any way, you know. Calling what you think an "unpopular opinion" (and thus what you like "an underrated thing") is a way of achieving that feeling...

@Sparkky "Litteraly everywhere?" I don't think so.

Suziezur Freiheit

It's not underrated, we worship it each time we're listening.

Joe Seymour

Such a simple intro to such a heavy, unique song. 👍🤘🏻
