Waiting on the world to change

By John Mayer

John Mayer once stated:

"I wanted to start a debate, because most of us are okay with waiting for things to change." This song was written in the time when lots of violence and crime was happening in the world so John Mayer's Waiting on the World to Change is written for just that reason.
John Mayer Interviewed at ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO
John Mayer was trying to express feelings of helplessness that come with knowing what needs to change the world. I personally feel that this song expresses everything violent and unkind in the world.
This song is about people, who think the government is wrong and that war is wrong, that want to help the world become a better place.
