“The World You Want” by Switchfoot

I’m picking up the pieces
I’m trying out adhesives
I’m trying to fix a place that feels broken
All my words they fail me
My voices don’t avail me
I’m trying to say the hope that’s unspokenIs this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Every day you’re alive
Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it

The world feels so malicious
With all our hits and misses
Feels like we’re in the business of rust
It’s when I stop to listen
All the moments I’ve been missing
I finally hear a voice I can trust

Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Every day you’re alive
Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Every day you’re alive

You change the world
You change the world
You change the world
Every day you’re alive
You change the world
Honey, you change the world
You change my world

You start to look like what you believe
You float through time like a stream
If the waters of time are made up by you and I
If you change the world for you, you change it for me

What you say is your religion
How you say it’s your religion
Who you love is your religion
How you love is your religion
All your science, your religion
All your hatred, your religion
All your wars are your religion
Every breath is your religion yea

Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Every day you’re alive
Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Every day you’re alive

You change the world
You change the world
You change my world
Every day you’re alive
You change my world
Honey, you change my world
You change my world

I was shocked to find and read through this list solely of terrorist attacks in 2015: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents,_2015
