Call to Action

Waiting For the World To Change
John Mayer
Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could

Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care,
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

And we're still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

 

John Mayer - Waiting On The World To Change

I think it's time we stop waiting. The world's not going to change if we all just sit back and wait.

It's time for change. Make it.

We have the power to bring our neighbours home from war.
We have the means to rise above and beat the power of everything that's going on in the world.
We have the strength to stand for something.

Make change. Stop waiting.

The world won't change if we don't ask it/tell it/force it to.

Let's be done waiting.

Find your change. Be it.

I love that song. And I love John Mayer. But his words are empty - what's he doing to change the world?

(I've almost managed to resist the urge to say "you've been saying 'feck yeah' for a while now?" because I think it's only really funny to me!
