The idea for this, is that anyone can relate these lyrics to any situation they feel. It's a motivational piece designed to help people realise that they are in control of their own lives and can influence the outcome of it.

There's a couple of lines that might suggest this is taking a dig at religion, that's to be decided by the listerner.

It's a pretty quick hardrock/metal type of song, deliberately quite preachy.

Verse 1

Transform your dreams
Into reality
Do what it takes
To make it be
Don't let it slip
You'll regret it
This can be great
If you'll just let it!

Chorus:

Be the change you wanna see
Don't gather dust upon the shelf
Open your pages, set your ideas free
And have faith in yourself.

Don't hang around
Waiting for it
Don't ever think
That you should pray for it
Rise up
From your knees
This is your life
So take the lead

Chorus:

Verse 3:

Welcome help
But don't expect it
Here is your chance
So don't reject it
You can go far
If you want it
It's in your hands
NOW DO YOU WANT IT?

Do something
Do something
Do something, make it right
Do something
Do something
do something, it's your life!

Chorus

Verse 1

Transform your dreams

I like this start. I work for a party organisation who's catchphrase is 'transforming your dreams into reality', so yeah. I like it!
Do what it takes
To make it be
Don't let it slip
You'll regret it
This can be great
If you'll just let it!
Nice

Chorus:

Be the change you wanna see
Don't be a book upon the shelf
what's wrong with a book on a shelf? Expand on this idea, it could be a lot more interesting to see your point of view rather than just an image
You can be whatever you wanna be
this line is a little off, I think it's mainly the 'wanna'. You can make this more intelligent if you have faith in yourself
If you have faith in yourself.

Don't hang around
Waiting for it
Don't ever think
That you should pray for it
again, expansion on the idea would be interesting. Giving the listener a reason to do so rather than just directing them to do so would give this much more movement and impact
Rise up
From your knees
This is your life
So take the lead

Chorus:

Verse 3:

Welcome help
But don't expect it
Here is your chance
So don't reject it
You can go far
If you want it
It's in your hands
NOW DO YOU WANT IT?

Do something
Do something
Do something, make it right
Do something
Do something
do something, it's your life!

Chorus


This is fun and there are some great little things in here, but it could reach another level with some expansion on a few of the ideas. I suggest editing this, I'd love to see it afterwards
