Everyday people in everyday
In everyday places where everyday starts
With everyday struggles they meet every day
That they have to survive and overcome in every way
From my everyday people
found in the middle-east
That scream for everyday freedom and everyday peace
That everyday wake up and everyday mourn
That everyday life and death of everyday war
Where everyday rebels
blow up with everyday bombs
Where everyday people are everyday harmed
Where everyday broadcasts are shown everyday
But everyday people don't ever have a say
My everyday people are
And everyday pray to see the day coming next
Everyday people in everyday life
who are everyday wronged of their everyday rights ...
MY EVERYDAY PEOPLE UNITE!!!
