Tune: Alistair Hulett.


Everyone I know is feeling the pinch
Of these straightened days:
Small change is counted on Tuesday;
By Wednesday, we’re always broke.
Every week it seems they cut
One more inch off our living wage:
Paring us down for the new age;
Squeezing us until we choke.

Everyone I know, everyone I know,
Everyone I know, everyone I know.

Everyone I know is warming
Their dreams on a dying flame
Out on an ocean of self-blame
Where big fish get let off the hook.
All the news I read says
This is my great opportunity
Here in the new clever country
Where some touch and others just look.

Everyone I know, everyone I know,
Everyone I know, everyone I know.

Everyone I know is worried
If they’ll be the next for the chop;
Every day the line is just
A little bit shorter at the bus stop.

Everyone I know is paying
The price for the lunacy
Of setting the corporate dogs free
Into the big picture book.
Everyone I know is looking for*
Someone to vote for,**
Turning away from the class war,***
Forgetting the world ever shook.

Everyone I know, everyone I know,
Everyone I know, everyone I know.

Everyone I know is worried
If they’ll be the next for the chop;
Every day the line is just
A little bit shorter at the bus stop.

Everyone I know is feeling the pinch
Of these straightened days:
Small change is counted on Tuesday;
By Wednesday, we’re always broke.
Every week it seems they cut
One more inch off our living wage:
Paring us down for the new age;
Squeezing us until we choke.

Everyone I know, everyone I know,
Everyone I know, everyone I know.

Everyone I know, everyone I know,
Everyone I know, everyone I know.

Alternative Lyrics:
*Everyone I know is painting
**In detail, the rope slack,
***Turning away from the fight back,
