Everyday People video first frame placeholder image

Living online melting hours
Daily truth leaves hearts for tribes to devour
Tricky phishing nets cast into space
You and me were always born to race

Every day people come out and play
Ordinary people work away
Every day people common day
Harder people harder day
Offer people another way
Common people common day

It’s not social when you’re not
Listen and learn forget-me-not
A book’s a book a face a face
Suckers and losers, your app’s a disgrace

Every day people come out and play
Ordinary people work away
See the people see them pay
Harder people get a harder day
Caution people to have their say
Common people common day

Toss a coin with both sides rising
Boys n girls, are realising
There’s war and peace and sports and cheats
Coins are tossed and money’s paid
And chance is just a turn betrayed

Every day people come out and play
Ordinary people work away
Every day people common day
See the people see them pay
Offer people another way
Come on people come out and play

Common people common day
Every day people common day
