About Everybody's Fool

"Everybody's Fool" is a nu metal song by American rock band Evanescence. Wind-up Records released the song on June 7, 2004, as the fourth and final single from their debut studio album, Fallen. It was written by Amy Lee and Ben Moody and it was produced by Dave Fortman. According to Lee, the song talks about celebrities like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, who strip and sell their bodies instead of music to their listeners. Inspired by her sister's love for music artists who had false images, Lee wrote the song five years before the release of the album. Critical reception towards "Everybody's Fool" were mixed to positive with critics praising the nu metal sound of the song. The accompanying music video for "Everybody's Fool" was filmed in April, 2004 and it was directed by Philipp Stölzl. It showed Lee in the role of a model who had a completely false image for her life. It focused on the struggles that Lee's character suffers because of her modelling career and her opposite lifestyle. "Everybody's Fool" was included in the set list of the Fallen tour. A live version was also available on their first live album, Anywhere but Home (2004).

Perfect by nature
Icons of self indulgence
Just what we all need
More lies about a world that

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 love you
No flaws when you're pretending
But now I know she

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

Without the mask where will you hide
Can't find yourself lost in your lie

I know the truth now
I know who you are
And I don't love you anymore

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you have everybody fooled

It never was and never will be
You're not real and you can't save me
Somehow now you're everybody's fool
