True Blood Episode 5×09 “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” Title Song Speculation

True Blood episode 5.09 is titled “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”.  The song for this episode might be the version by “Tears for Fears” from 1985:

The lyrics for this song are:

Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on Mother Nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own design
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I’ll be right behind you
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

So is the reference in the song to “Everybody” speaking of the vampires or perhaps the fairies? Yes the humans of course will also want to have a say in their world especially if the vampires are on a killing spree. Whatever version of the song that is used it will be fun to hear it on the show.
