What's happening now

Billy Squire--'Everybody Wants You'

You see 'em coming at you every night
Strung on pretension, they fall for you at first sight
you know their business, you think it's a bore
They make you restless, it's nothing you ain't seen before
Get around town, spend your time on the run
You never let down, say you do it for fun
You never miss a play, though you make quite a few
You give it all away when everybody wants you

You crave attention, you can never say "no"
Throw your affections anyway the wind blows
You always make it, you're on top of the scene
You sell the copy like the cover of a magazine
Putting on the eyes till there's nobody else
You never realize what you do to yourself
The things that they see make the daily reviews
You never get free when everybody wants you

Everybody knows you
Everybody snows you
Everybody needs you, leads you, bleeds you

Nights of confusion and impossible dreams
Days at the mirror, patching up around the seams
You got your glory, you paid for it all
You take your pension in loneliness and alcohol
Say goodbye to conventional ways
You can't escape the hours, you lose track of the days
The more you understand, seems the more like you do
You never get away, everybody wants you

Everybody want you
Everybody want you



NOT Billy Squire--'Someone Else Blows You'

You see 'em coming at you every election,
Self-righteous assholes from the Fruit Loop section
They know their business and they know yours too,
They squeeze your nuts, til they're turning blue
They're up there on your T. V. screen,
and you wonder 'what the hell do they mean?'
They never miss a trick, you miss quite a few
'cause you voted for these pricks, that's on you

They crave attention and they always say 'no!'
We look away, and they give us a blow
They're always smiling as the stab your back
left to figuratively suffer upon the rack
Distort the truth til we're not sure anymore
don't realize your cold til they're slamming the door
you put common sense and reason upon the shelf
think for yourself- don't let someone else rule you

Someone else rules you, someone else blows you
someone else snows you
Someone else leads you, leads you, sit here as they ream you, ream you

Days of confusion as they spin their web
they'll vote for you if you think you're a celeb
unearned glory, you're all spiders from Hell
to get your way, y'all use the hard-sell
We say goodbye to conventional ways
We can't escape the hours, we lose track of the days
The less we understand, seems the more like we do
someone else reams you

Someone else reams you
Someone else reams you
