I Thought I Could Change the World


The opposite of the dreams we strive to reach

Is where we take our stance

Apathetic to change the way we live and die

The consequence is hid from our sight


We’ve forgotten why a candle burns,

Though it’s in our eyes

Feeling like you should stand

Stagnant while others recede



I thought I could change the world so I wrote this song

Even if I’m left alone, I will stand my own   


People of today just can’t change

The innovations are

Assembly lines that produce paintings

Of what our lives should portray
