So you wanna change the world
It's all you ever talk about
So you wanna make a difference
But have you really thought it out?

Don't want to hear about your promises
To us it's only politics
It's a sorry situation
If this is how you get your kicks

Meaning

Peppermint Heaven's official lyric explanation


This is a unique song. We don’t usually find inspiration in politics, but during the 2012 election here in the US, there were a lot of promises made by politicians that were so obviously insincere. You’re always hearing about change, but it’s almost always being blocked by political self-interest or the influence of money. We felt inspired to respond to this with this song. It’s one of our favorites to play live.
