Change my Mind

I woke up wanting to change the world

Naah maybe change my clothes

Scratch that, I think I’ll just change my mind

To something more useful

Fruitful

I can change myself to be

What you want me to be

But then would I be me

Or just a carbon copy

Change is good

As long as your foundation remains

The same

And your change

Is meant to enhance

The résumé of your mind

 

So, I woke up wanting to change the world

Naah maybe change my clothes

Scratch that, I think I’ll just change my mind

To learn and grow

To study and know

To move and go

To a place where change isn’t so bad

And every thought I

Ever had

Is there.

 

I woke up wanting to change the world

Naah maybe change my clothes

Scratch that, I think I’ll just change my mind

And start that revolution

The mental dissolution

Of all the connotations

That THEY wanted me to think

I will change my mind to think

And be

A reflection of me and

Televise the resolution of my soul

 

I woke up wanting to change the world

Naah maybe change my clothes

Scratch that, I think I’ll just change my mind
