*chorus 1*
Never was and never will be.
Have you no shame,
Don't you see me?
You know you've got everybody fooled.
Look here she comes now.
Bow down and stare in wonder.
Oh! How we loved you.
Too bad we didn't know she

Never was and never will be.
You don't know how you've betrayed me.

You're not real and you can't save me.
Somehow now you're everybody's fool.

    THIS SONG IS CALLED EVERYBODY"S FOOL!!! this song is kinda mocking today's "perfect image". the title actually makes perect sense. since people in the spotlight do things that other's WANT to see... thus "Everybody's Fool"
