I Must Be The Change

Chorus:
I must be the change in this world
That tiny little seed from which the tree emerged
Can't wait, hesitate, someone must be first
I must be the change in this world

Verse 1:
Styrene, UV, fish full of mercury
Holes in the southern sky
No rain, hurricane, climate going insane
Crops and children die
Left says right gets all to blame
But their lifestyles look the same
It may be difficult to change
The powers that may be, so I must change me, oh

Repeat chorus

Verse 2:
Plant a tree, stop a leak, recycle batteries
Compact fluorescent lights
Boycott, save a Watt, make sure I turn it off
Walk or ride a bike
Every dollar that I spend
Is a message that I send
To business and the government
Of what I want to see, how this world should be, so

Repeat chorus

Bridge:
Blame is just a game we play to fool our friends
Into thinking all we do is right
Blame solves nothing, only forces a defense
From enemies we now have to fight

Repeat chorus

Last chorus:
I must be the change in this world
That tiny little seed from which the tree emerged
Can't wait, hesitate, someone must be first
I must be the change
Don't look at me so strange
Before things get more absurd
You like me must be the change in this world
