2 The Message-- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Finding and using your power By CHARLIE MARTIN Catholic New Service REAL WORLD I wonder what it's like/To be the rainmaker.fl won- der what it's like/To know that I made the rain./I'd store it in boxes/With little yellow tags on every one/And you can come and see them/When I'm done,/When I'm done. I wonder what's it's like/To be a Superhero./I won- der where I'd go/If I could fly around downtown/From some other planetdI get this funky high on yellow sundBoy I bet my friends will/All be m stunned./They're stunned. REFRAIN Straight up./What did you hope/To learn about here?Fir I were someone else,/Would this all fall apart?/Strange. Where were you,/When we started this gig?/I wish the real world)Would just stop has- sling me. I wonder what it's like/To be the head honcho./I wonder what I'd do/if they all did/Just what I said./I'd shout out an order,/"I think we're out of thisdMan, get me some./Boy, don't make me/Wanna change my -- tone/My tone." REPEAT REFRAIN Please don't change./Please don't break./The only thing that seems/To work at all is you./Please don't change at all/From me to you,lAnd you to me. REPEAT REFRAIN Written by Rob Thomas Sung by Matchbox 20 Copyright (c) 1996, EMI Blackwood Music Inc. (BMI) What comes to mind when you see the word '.'power?" Do you ever consider your own personal power? "Real World" is Matchbox 20's latest release off their highly successful disc "Yourself or Someone Like You." The lyrics seem to describe a person's struggle to discover his own power. The person in the song wonders "what it's like to be the rainmaker" or a "superhero" or a "head hon- cho." He says to himself, "I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said." To me, these words reveal that this individual feels he has little influence over his own life. Perhaps that is why he says, "I wish the real world would just stop hassling me." He does not say what these "hassles" are, but apparently he experiences little power to resolve them. His only sense of control appears to be in his relationship with his girlfriend: "Please don't change. Please don't break. The only thing that seems to work at all is you." All us of need to feel our power. Real power COMMUNICATION ......
