Waiting for the World to Change

Found this great video on Blogs with a Face. I may not know much ASL, but the video gets its message across loud and clear.

Within an hour of writing this, I saw this song with captions on TV. It’s a lovely song.


Here are the lyrics from the John Meyer song that’s in this video:
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)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(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)
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)
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
And 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
Now we keep on waiting
(waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change(x4)

    This video is so overexposed here and what a cheesey
    song too. “Waiting” is not even proactive. Wishful thinking really.
