"Everybody's Friend" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins, Robert A. Ezrin and Christopher A. Chaney....
Hey man where did you go?
Thought I, but I guess
I don't know you
Gave you my heart
You looked to take it apart
Hey man what did you do?
Walked away we weren't through
Last time was a fake shaken head
Now I think it must be said

Hey man
Can't be everybody's friend
Hey man
Can't be everybody's friend

Man of peace
Man of war
Tell me who knows more?
People gathering by the well
I think we could meet up again

Hey man
Can't be everybody's friend
Hey man
Can't be everybody's friend

Hey man
Can't be everybody's friend
Ain't no way man
To be everybody's friend

    General Commentthe whole of the strays album is, unlike their old ones, about fame. this is no different. i dont know the official translation but i think its about how everyone loves him because hes famous and they shouldnt

    My InterpretationI think it's about an old friend drifting away because they're too busy trying to please everyone.

    General CommentI always thought it was a jab at Eric Avery, but what do I know. Great song either way. Strays is not classic Jane's, but it's a solid album for sure!
