Verse 1
D              Bm           G            D
me and all my friends we're all misunderstood
      A               Bm                      G           D
they say we stand for nothing and there's no way we ever could
        D                    Bm
now we see everything that's going wrong
          G                   D
with the world and those who lead it
         A                  Bm                G              D
we just feel like we don't have the means to rise above and beat it


Chorus
       D             Bm                      G         D
so we keep waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
             A       Bm                      G         D
we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
      D               Em                 Bm            Em
it's hard to beat the system when we're standing at a distance
            A       Bm                       G         D
so we keep waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change


Verse 2
    D             Bm                  G                   D
now if we had the power to bring our neighbors home from war
                 A              Bm                G                D
they would have never missed a Christmas no more ribbons on their door
               D            Bm               G              D
and when you trust your television what you get is what you got
                 A            Bm                  G                D
cause when they own the information, oh they can bend it all they want


Chorus
                   D       Bm                      G         D
that's why we're waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
      D                Em                          Bm           Em
it's not that we don't care, we just know that the fight ain't fair
               A        Bm                      G         D
so we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change

Chorus
             D       Bm                       G         D
we're still waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
     D           Em             Bm           Em
one day our generation is gonna rule the population
               A         Bm                     G         D
so we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
do we keep waiting?(waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
                G         D                     G         D
waiting on the world to change, waiting on the world to change
                G         D
waiting on the world to change
