(Verse)
I'm pickin' up the pieces
I'm trying out adhesives
I'm trying to fix a place that feels broken

(Verse)
All my words have failed me
My voices don't avail me
I'm trying to say the hope that's unspoken

(Chorus 1)
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

(Verse)
The world feels so malicious
With all our hits and misses
Feels like we're in the business of rust

(Verse)
It's when I stop to listen
All the moments I've been missin'
I finally hear a voice I can trust

(Chorus 1)
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

(Chorus 2)
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

(Verse)
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
I could change the world for you, you change it for me

(Bridge)
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

(Chorus 1)
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

(Chorus 2)
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
