Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the U.S.A.

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the U.S.A.

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 U.S.A.

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 shriveling like a leaf
But it's not the whiskey that do'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 U.S.A.

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
'Til 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 U.S.A.

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the U.S.A.

Everybody's a victim
Seems we're going that way
Everybody's a victim
We're becoming like the U.S.A.
