"Everyone's At It" as written by Lily Rose Allen and Greg Kurstin....
I don't know much but I know this for certain
And that is the sun poking its head 'round the curtain
Now please can we leave, I'd like to go to bed now
It's not just the sun that is hurting my head now
I'm not trying to say that I'm smelling of roses
But when will we tire of putting shit up our noses
I don't like staying up, staying up past the sunlight
It's meant to be fun and this just doesn't feel right

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves anti-depressants
Now how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
From what I can see everyone's at it
Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it

I get involved but I'm not advocating
Got an opinion, yeah you're well up for slating
So you've got a prescription and that makes it legal
Now find the excuses overwhelmingly feeble
You go to the doctor, you need pills for sleeping
Well if you can convince him, I guess that's not cheating
See your daughter's depressed we'll get her straight on the Prozac
But little do you know, she already takes crack

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves anti-depressants
Now how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
From what I can see everyone's at it
Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it

Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves anti-depressants
Now how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
From what I can see everyone's at it

Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it
Everyone's at it

    General Commentwow pretty powerful song for even lily. really deep, a lot of her songs sound deeper on the new cd. i cant wait! the songs obviously about abusing prescription drugs, and drugs in general. good message.

    General CommentThis songs meaning is obvious.

    but in denial about so nothing gets achieved.

    General CommentAnyone else think this song's beat is almost identical to Smile Like You Mean It by the Killers?

    I like Lily Allen, but I feel weird when I hear this song and I feel like a guy is about to sing.

    General Comment^ at some parts, it actually does. it's weird, haha.

    this song is so fucking true;
    best lines:
    so youre daughters depressed, we'll get her straight on the prozac
    but little do you know she already takes crack

    and the answer to 'why can't we all just be honest?'
    rofl, i think we all know.

    General Comment''sun poking its head round the curtain'' just means the sun is coming through the clouds, in this context it's as though she's been up all night doing coke and she can see the sun coming out meaning its morning and she wants to go home cos she's not enjoying it

    Memorythis song is so real. i can relate to it because from a very young age i thought a pill could fix anything. then i realized that it doesn't always work like that so i tried to self medicate myself. it made the medication not work properly. the doctors kept giving me more shit and i kept asking for as much as i could. i think real happiness comes from inside and you have to find the underlying problem. the quick fix never really works.

    "So you're daughters depressed, we'll get her straight on the Prozac
    But little do you know she already takes crack"

    i think that is a powerful line. it just makes me a little scared to have children haha because i dont want them to fuck up like i did and i feel like perscriptions are becoming more and more available.
