SARGE: Waiting

“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

Chorus: 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


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

John Mayer’s a talented young man. His talent for rhyme, rhythm and tempo, can plumb emotions making you feel human and vulnerable. Talent like this points thought toward truth and truth deeper into thought.

I don’t know Mayer’s politics. He could be as liberal as I am conservative. That’s his right as conservatism is mine. But, the most important part is having a right to divergent beliefs and theories. We shouldn’t be minimalized because we think one way and those in power think in another diametrically opposed direction. Occasionally we feel distanced from life. We feel distanced our participation in the decision making affects us and our children the most, both immediately and in the future.

We’re “represented” (sarcasm) by people elected from a pool more a stagnant miasma of confusing self-generated programs we’re told are our will. We’re told what’s good for us. We’re told we’re too immature, too old, too uninformed and too “out of it” to be allowed to decide our own fates. WE can’t be trusted by government to do what’s best for us by reining in the selfish impulses of people believing themselves to be separate, apart and superior to us. They have money and by choice choose to live separate and apart from us as they rule over us. They remain removed from those they’re responsible to.

It’s NOT representative government when the governors are removed from the people elected them. What we have is despotism leading to domination. The tactics used by one camp to vilify the other is exemplified in the language and rhetoric of the attacks used while all the time declaring they want bi-partisan participation deciding America’s direction. Yet, at the same time politically based progressives blatantly pulse the inner enmity they feel for their political opposition like an infected wound. They find discussion inappropriate because it’s different from their thoughts. They want change in only their direction. They won’t negotiate lest it be the conditions of their opponent’s abject and total capitulation on ideas, ideals and principles.

This opposition to the present administration is a form of ideological war. It’s this debate as to whether we’ll be a nation of men or strictly of laws. Either side can be emotionless, uncaring and unresponsive to debate. This discussion created the nation we know as the United States of America. We have different values, goals and dreams. We have different wants, drives and desires. But most of all we should be singing of the same love for country as our founders did; just in separate, different voices.

The rhythm of the American song is heartfelt. It needs your voice to create the harmony necessarily understood in a fully committed choir.

What are YOU waiting for? Sing out to be heard.

Thanks for listening.
