By 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

Thought of the day (unrelated to the song above):

“A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.”

    that quote is exactly my thought process when I have to fly!
    I suck!

    I agree with Jamie on the flying-thing which then makes me a timid coward… I am not sure I want to agree with that. I´d just rather call myself a realist: humans aren´t supposed to fly that´s why we don´t have wings.

    Oh did I tell you I am flying over to my sister in a week? 9 lovely hours on a plan. “Yes please I would like something to drink, a bottle of G&T if that is OK?”
