about

This song was inspired by a saying that goes "You don't polish brass on a sinking ship". Today's culture is bombarded with this message in the media, news outlets and pulpits: that the world is ending, we're all doomed and there's no hope for the future. This fallacy produces a self-fulfilling prophecy where people believe there's no point in making an effort in their lives and in the world, thus leading to more negative consequences.

lyrics

Always searching for a sign, that the world is falling down
Ever ceasing to resign, when the forecast speaks of storms around

“You’re never gonna save the world (so give up the fight)"
"You’re never gonna change the world (and I don’t even mind)”

You rejoice when the dark gets darker
‘Cause it means that you’ll be gone before too long
You wanna leave this world in style
But what if we are here for a while?

“You’re never gonna save the world (so give up the fight)"
"You’re never gonna change the world (and I don’t even mind)”
“Don’t polish brass on this sinking ship (so wipe off that grin)"
"It’s all going to hell in a hand basket (even God can’t win)”

These self-fulfilling prophecies
A plague, a virus and disease...

“You’re never gonna save the world (so give up the fight)"
"You’re never gonna change the world (and I don’t even mind)”
“Don’t polish brass on this sinking ship (so wipe off that grin)"
"It’s all going to hell in a hand basket (even God can’t win)”

“You’re never gonna save the world"
"You’re never gonna change the world"

Time to reach for higher ground
Time to take the time
Winds of change have blown me down
Conquering the line
