“Waiting On The World To Change”

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 on the world to change
We keep on 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 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 on the world to change
We keep on 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 on the world to change

And we’re still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

 

突然想起了 John Mayer 的这一首歌。

听起来有一点无奈,怎么只是在等待世界改变,难道什么都不能做吗?

身为平民的我们,做的一切确实可能一点影响也没有。又不是政府,又不是美国,对整个世界的影响力会有多少呢?宇宙这么大,我只是空中飘行的一颗小沙子。既是花费了一生,企图通过个人的行为为这个地球做一点事,也可能因为其他人的无知或漠不关心,导致自己付出的一切变成白费功夫。

但既是这样,也该什么都不做,只是一味地等吗?

既是做的一切被其他人认为是无聊、没利益、吃力不讨好,对世界的改变没有任何明显的贡献,但我要求的是对得起自己,对得起天地良心。我看这个世界是没可能好转了,只会每况愈下,社会越来越丑陋,人的心越来越混浊,但既是这样,我们也不能让自己的灵魂像空气一样越来越污染。

You can always change the world in your little own ways. 既是看不见,也不要放弃。一时的失败是挫折,放弃却是真正的失败。
