EVERYBODY TALKS
[ pop, Americana ]

       Here in a global information age, the whole world's truly become a stage
       Everyone has their own soap box and their own opinions
       Social websites, raging blogs, partisan agenda and attack dogs
       Everybody talks and talks and talks and nobody listens

             Everyone's troubled by conditions
             We all have our own suspicions
             Everybody talks and talks; talks, talks and talks
             And nobody listens, nobody listens, um, um um
             Um, um, um, um, um, nobody listens

       Frightened cries from the birds in the trees
       Fill the warm haze surrounding you and me
       Feel the ill wind rustle through the leaves
       As a voice behind the thunder pleads
       Before it's way, way too late
       Won't you listen, listen to me please?

             Everyone has their own ambitions
             Lofty illusions, superstitions
             Everybody talks and talks and talks

             Everyone's troubled by conditions
             We all have our own suspicions
             Everybody talks and talks; talks, talks and talks
             And nobody listens, nobody listens, um, um um
             Um, um, um, um um, somebody listen ! *


* Based loosely on Psalm 81.
