  1. “Waiting on the World to Change”[?] --- John Mayer (29 yrs old, a “celebrity” who “didn’t do so well in school” but “knew what he wanted to do since the age of 13”)

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
[ these lyrics found on www.completealbumlyrics.com ]

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



Alternate take:


"Philosophers are forever interpreting history; the point is to change it"
---- Karl Marx (27 years old)
