Arcade Fire – Everything Now

Every inch of sky's got a star
Every inch of skin's got a scar
I guess we've got everything now
Every inch of space in your head
Is filled up with the things that you read
I guess you've got everything now
And every film that you've ever seen
Fills the spaces up in your dreams
That reminds me

(Everything now)
(Everything now)


Every inch of road's got a sign
And every boy uses the same line
I pledge allegiance to everything now
Every song that I've ever heard
Is playing at the same time, it's absurd
It reminds me, we've got everything now
We turn the speakers up till they break
'Cause every time you smile it's a fake!

 

Stop pretending, you've got…

(Everything now!) I need it
(Everything now!) I want it
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!)
(Everything now!)
Everything now

 

Every ancient road's got a town
Daddy, how come you're never around?
I miss you, like everything now
Mama, leave the food on the stove
Leave your car in the middle of the road
This happy family with everything now
We turn the speakers up till they break
'Cause every time you smile it's a fake!

 

Stop pretending, you've got...

(Everything now!) I need it
(Everything now!) I want it
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!)
(Everything now!)

 

'Til every room in my house is filled with shit I couldn't live without
(Everything now!) I need it
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!)
(Everything now!)
Everything now!

 

La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La

 

Stop pretending, you've got...
(Everything now!) I need it
(Everything now!) I want it
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!) I can't live
(Everything now!)

 

And every room in my house is filled with shit I couldn't live without
(Everything now!) I need it
(Everything now!) I can't live without
(Everything now!) I can't live
Every inch of space in my heart is filled with something wrong, then it's dark
Ashes of everything now
And then you're black again
Can't make it back again
From everything now

Interpretation of Everything Now

Musically, the number is based on disco rock from the 1970s. It starts with a whimsy foreplay before switching to a piano line with a different rhythm. The text is sarcastic and melancholic, only by the instrumentation a joyful character is obtained. In terms of the content, the present state of an overcrowded, insatiable world is lamented. The singer Win Butler sings about the compulsive consumption, which leads to filling every room in the house with things without which he cannot live. But do material things and immediate access to everything, wherever we are, really make us more satisfied? And if not, can we escape the pace of over-consumption?
The song "Everything Now" is about creating space for things that are really important. There are many possibilities for entertainment and to be provided with information from all sides. But it can also be annoying. We do not always want everything now. However, the singer repeats the lines "I want it" and "I need it". A step back is therefore not an option.
