"Waiting on the World to Change" Analysis
Transcript of "Waiting on the World to Change" Analysis
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it" Eventhough people understand the problems in the world, they do not try and make the changes, but pass the resposiblity on. "It's hard to beat the system when your standing at a distance." Mayer continues to challenge the reader by appealing to his or her emotions. "They would have never missed a Chirstmas
No more ribbons on their door." At this point, many people know someone in the war and have been affected by the fight. Mayer is appealing to the sadness associated with a soldier's death. If people do not want to feel sad anymore, they have to stand up for it. "One day our generation is gonna rule the population." There is a sense of responsibility the reader should feel for his or her future as well as that of his or her peers. "Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want
That's why we're waiting." Mayer choses to say "that's why we're waiting" even though it does not make sense to wait to take a stand against people who are giving out the wrong information. By phrasing the sentence this way, Mayer is again challenging the reader to think deeper about the situation. "Me and my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could." Right away Mayer challenges the doubters. He says "we" are misunderstood by the people who say we have no goals in life. "We" are misunderstood because our generation does have values to stand for. Mayer appeals to emotion, logic, and uses repetition to point out to the reader that our generation is being lazy and needs to put up a fight for change.
