"The World You Want" is the fifth track on Switchfoot's ninth album, Fading West.


I’m picking up the pieces
I’m trying out adhesives
I’m trying to fix a place that feels broken

All my words they fail me
My voices don’t avail me
I’m trying to say the hope that’s unspoken

Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it
Everyday you’re alive

Is this the world you want?
Is this the world you want?
You’re making it

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

It’s when I stop to listen
All the moments I’ve been missing
I finally hear a voice I can trust

Everyday you’re alive
You change the world
Everyday you’re alive
Honey, you change the world
You change my world

You start to look like what you believe
We float through time like a stream
But the waters of time
Are made up by you and I
If you change the world for you, you change it for me

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

Your religion
