Change? Change is impossible
What we’ve always said,
It’s always been completely false,
There is no hope in the world.
It is completely untrue that
Humans can change.
We are too set in our ways,
We are not going to say
We can make it better.
Wars will cease, we will live in peace
That’s what change can bring.
Women beaten for wanting to read.
Children starving in desolate streets,
A father struggling to provide for his family,
The boy being killed for different beliefs,
A young woman tortured and brought to her knees,
I wouldn’t wake up to see
The world I wish I lived in where
If I just shut my eyes and imagine
All these problems can vanish;
How we could change this world!
But I recognize the many ways
We can never come hand in hand.
That what they say is right;
I know that it’s false
Change could never come,
Until we turn it all around
