Proclaimers — Everybody's A Victim lyrics

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa
Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa

I demand recompense
For sitting on the fence
Throughout my adult life
You've got to put my parents in jail
For raising me in Fife
It doesn't matter what I do
You have to say it's alright
And I need you to send somebody around
To tuck me in at night
Because...

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa

Well it's not my fault
That I'm positive
I just stuck a needle in my arm
And nobody told me
That sixty a day
Would do me any harm
My liver's shrivelling like a leaf
But it's not the whisky that doo's it
Call me irresponsible
And I'm really going to lose it
Because...

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa

Wear a ribbon for this
Hug a stranger for that
Light a candle to the dead
And soon you'll forget
That you ever had
A brain inside our head
We value everythin the same
We turn it into farce
So we don't know a crisis
'Till it kicks us up the arse
Because...

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa
Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa
Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the usa
