- "Our country and our cities, they have been betrayed for money/Ooooh, and somehow, the people, they will make a change, yeah/There's not a doubt in my mind/If hunger and anger place the blame/There won't be a country left to change"
- "We got to see what we're doing in the name of comfort"
Complete lyrics at the Motherpage
This song proclaims that the human race (the titular "everybody") is capable of growing and reforming, but at the present, nobody is willing to learn from past mistakes, and has sacrificed wisdom for material comfort.
- David Van De Pitte - arranged steel and string guitar
