can’t change everything lyrics – 1905

just because i can’t change everything,
doesn’t mean i can’t change anything.
dance on the ashes of what was and fall head first in what could be.
beyond the barricade… is there a world you long to see?
to envision a world without chains but recognize that we,
as individuals, can only chip away at the links.
one at a time, day by day.
to have the ability to wage quiet wars in our everyday lives,
and recognize the subtle victories when they happen…
an opinion changed by something you said.
a lifestyle adjusted by what you suggested.
a brighter path taken with directions you gave.
a world revealed by what you did.
one brick today is one less for tomorrow.
