Ever get frustrated with people who complain and feel the world owes them something?

Me too.

So I wrote a song about it. Here's a little backstory before you press play.

It all started with…

Frustration

The theme of this song comes from my frustration with and my desire to reach out to two types of people;

1) People who complain about everything going on around them and not doing anything about it. I know these types of people very well because I was one for a long time and still have to remind myself to this day.

2) People that simply choose to vote for one team or the other as if there are only two – when neither team has done squat for years and years – and then expect things to change. Again, for years I was one of these people.

My Humble Advice

My humble advice (in the chorus) and fictional example of someone making a difference (last verse) both come from personal observation, many years of reading, and advice from people who know. I truly believe that we can all change things for the better but we have to start with ourselves and work outward.

Like Ghandi said “You must be the change you wish to see in this world”.

So I guess when it is all said and done, my belief is that the answer to “Change The World” is to start with changing your world.

Lyrics

A sleepwalkin collar with nowhere to go
Except back to work to put his head in the hole
Then he has the nerve to bitch and complain
That all the walls around him are always the same

He has his problems but don't we all
Start dialin questions man
And the answers will call

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness,
to start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by

Every four years he goes out to vote
For the less of two evils, its easy, why rock the boat
They talk with two faces but its not a lie
Cuz we trust our TV's more than our two eyes

Turn off the TV let your mind grow
Take that cold shower man
Before there's no hope

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness,
to start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by

Sally burned her bra and fights with picket signs
With nothin but the faces of our children on her mind
No diamond rings no picket fence no shopping sprees
She gave it all away, so we could see
WHY DON’T WE SEE?

She gave her all head high and walkin tall
Bloody lips and bruises man
Don't you let it go to waste

You wanna change you world you can't stand by
And just so you know man it starts inside
You gotta stop stumblin in darkness
To start walkin in light
You wanna change you world you can't stand by
