Song Lyrics

1..2..3...

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 is 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)

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

Its hard to beat the system

When we`re standing at a distance

So we keep waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power

To bring our neighbors home from war

They would`ve never missed a Christmas

No more ribbons on their door

When you trust your television

What you get is what you got

Cuz when they own the information ooohhh,

They can bend it all they want

So while we`re waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (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)

Waiting on the world to change



Interlude

We`re still waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

One day our generation

Is gonna rule the population

So we keep on waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

No, we keep on waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting)

Waiting on the world to change

Waiting on the world to change

Waiting on the world to change

Waiting on the world to change.
