Everyone’s watching to see what you can’t do.
Everyone’s hoping you’ll pull through.
Everyone’s seein’ the world’s not really fair.
Everyone knows it’s time to share.

Everybody’s working for the weakened.
Everybody needs a second chance.
As we learn, our caring’s only deepened.
Get a three-day weekend like in France.

You want a piece of my heart?
Just gotta show me a chart.
And if the data is true,
I’ll start fighting for you!

Everyone’s dancing, shouting in the street.
Everyone’s turning up the heat.
Everyone’s seeing the problem’s not your fault.
We’re getting ready for an assault!

Everybody’s started volunteering.
Everybody’s doin’ what is right.
People want to cheer instead of fearing
Everybody wants to join the fight.

You say the system is fair.
Just take a look over there.
You better hear what we say.
The world is changing today!

Your world is falling apart?
Come have a piece of my heart.
It’s time to open your eyes.
We’re tearing off the disguise.

You’re seeking peace in the streets?
You better strap on your cleats.
Oh yeah we’re planting a seed.
We’re understanding their greed.

‘Cause when the people unite.
They’re gonna know what is right.
We’re going on the attack.
On yeah we’re taking it back.

Ignore the leaders who lie.
Let’s hear the neighbors who cry.
We’re gonna fight til we die.
