This song was my anthem last year. It described the helplessness I felt in face of all the world’s problems. And I actually don’t think that our generation is apathetic. I think we are overwhelmed and misinformed. But the world isn’t going to change on its own. It comes down to all of us taking personal responsibility and doing what we can in our corner of the world.
John Mayer definitely has skills in the song-writing department and an incredible husky voice (…yes, yes I do have a bit of a crush on him). I highly recommend his album Continuum, from which ‘Waiting on the world to change’ was taken. Listen to the song, take in the lyrics. He speaks a lot of truth.
