The Kind of World I Want to Live In

Right now, stop and ask yourself this question: "what kind of world do I want to live in?" We are writing tomorrow's history right now, all of us, together.

I want to live in a world where every damn time I turn on a tv or a radio, there's not someone coming at me with a message that tries to manipulate me by showing me some cleverly conceived way of rationalizing hate for others into love of myself and my family.

I want to live in a world that values education so much that it is freely available to everyone uniformly.

I want to live in a world that simply doesn't give a damn about anyone's personal life, because doing so would just be rude.

I want to live in a world where we can stop trying so hard to take advantage of each other (or kill each other for that matter).

I want to live in a world where I can believe tomorrow will be better than today.

For better or worse, we are all stuck down here at the bottom of this gravity well together. Every last human that ever was ... and the craziest thing about it is that there is nothing standing between us and that world. Nothing but ourselves.

And that's sort of what this song is about.
