The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing
It's time to start all over, make a new beginning
There's too much pain, too much suffering
Let's resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Now don't get me wrong - I love life and living
But when you wake up and look around at everything that's going down -
All wrong
You see we need to change it now, this world with too few happy endings
We can resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The world is broken into fragments and pieces
That once were joined together in a unified whole
But now too many stand alone - There's too much separation
We can resolve to come together in the new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We can break the cycle - We can break the chain
We can start all over - In the new beginning
We can learn, we can teach
We can share the myths the dream the prayer
The notion that we can do better
Change our lives and paths
Create a new world and

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing
It's time to start all over, make a new beginning
There's too much fighting, too little understanding
It's time to stop and start all over
Make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We need to make new symbols
Make new signs
Make a new language
With these we'll define the world

And start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over ...

How's it working out for you?

Tired of winning yet?

Not laughing with you ... laughing at you


Hope!
Wow...never heard that song like I did today, a week+ into all the George Floyd protests, vigils and demonstrations.  Maybe we are about to start over?
death, taxes and RP will play Tracy Chapman and Suzanne Vega once an hour.
This is an oddly prescient choice to wake up with on the Monday after the coronavirus scares and mass closure announcements.
 These sad songs make me happy, strangely....

So you get it and then you're a player,

You want to reclaim your mind

who want to turn you into a half-baked moron
consuming all this trash that's being manufactured
out of the Bones of a Dying World. 
This is why we need a new beginning,
and this song from Chapman is at least a start. 
So, thanks Tracy! 


 
I'm going 7 to 8 on this one today, completely on the strength of jackie0's prose....Long Live RP!!

Even a year later, every time I read this, it blows me away again. You either are a writer (hopefully), or you should become one. I've never read a more spot on diagnosis of everything that's wrong with our societies in so few words.
Great composition from a much underappreciated artist!
8+
Again....an artist that can't be duplicated.You know it's her the minute you hear her.Composer,singer,poet.Her lyrics are timeless!!
This album is gold from start to finish.
Yes, let's start all over again, back to before we had
'If it feels good...do it',
political correctness in the extreme,
fake news (we used to get 'objective news' for us to judge,
now we just get 'reporter's views of everything'.
Back to when people fulfilled their 'responsibilities' rather than demanding their 'rights'.
Did I hear right: "Start all over"...?

Must have taken her damb near all night to write THIS one, Jeezeuzz G A W D.
Wonder how many times she had to start all over start all over start all over. 


Not a big fan but this one is a solid 7
good to know all her songs are equally brutal.
7 -> 8

The 'start all over' sentiments in this song have been a part of radical movements going back to prehistory, including one started 2000 years ago by a carpenter from Palestine. Millennarianism has been going for millennia.

In the modern feminist world, which Tracey Chapman certainly belongs to, there are some millennarian movements that posit a complete break from patriarchy and capitalism, and starting all over again with a new world, culture and language(s). There was a niche of radical feminist science fiction back in the 80s which was explicity about this - for instance, Suzy McKee Charnas Walk to the End of the World and Nicola Griffith's Ammonite.

 
Right on frederica! you forgot to mention the planet ruled by women in: A&cmars.jpg
It wasn't until you sang it for the 25th time that I realized you were going to "start all over".  Thanks for not stopping at 24, Tracy.

always have loved her
It's just a song.

Time to separate the theme from the performer.

These lyrics might be inspirational on a personal level for those wishing to leave something behind but reading more into it than that is a little over the top.
"The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing"

The girl just has it goin' on!
The whole album's good.
Interesting choice for election night.
Anybody who makes music for themselves has my respect.

As for your question; "WTF does that mean?"...well...if it isn't plain then you need to  relearn your redin. rightin and rithmatic.

Maybe what she's trying to say is that we take way too much for granted, we let ourselves and each other get away with stuff that if we really thought about it, is just crazy and evil.  We're playing out the Easter Island saga on a planetary scale for example, and hardly anyone who has any political or practical (money) power stops to say "Hey, is this really such a great idea?"  Instead we all just sheeple along like its all just the most wonderful agenda anyone could come up with.
This could be a good song for the protests in Madison.  It got MY attention!

Ummm... All I can say, without talking about the song itself, is this album, when it came out, reminds me of some of the best times in my life.... just a great album to put on and walk away from... before 'playlist'...

2. That's debatable, just because she plays guitar and sings does not automatically make her a folk singer. Her albums definitely sound more pop/rock than folk to me. I'm not an apologist for her, just a fan defending her work from a mean spirited critic.

3. That's also debatable. I think she does, you think she doesn't. ....and life goes on....{#Wink}

Read "1984" if you don't think that "new symbols, new signs, new language" can be scary. The 20th century was replete with attempts to "start all over", all of them at unfathomable human cost. Who knows what was going through Tracy Chapman's mind - I'm sure she didn't mean this as a totalitarian fantasy - but nevertheless this gives me chills, and not in a good way.

Woops...not a bad song, but following the last three, this threw me off:

Tracy Chapman - New Beginning
Iron & Wine and Calexico - Burn That Broken Be
Johnny Cash - Hurt
Pink Floyd - Sheep

Makes me think of when that song with Destinys Child was popular.."Say my name"...and  they repeated that in the song about 5000 times...I woke up from a nap and yep there it was  on the stereo, my daughters loved it...I YELLED from the bed room "WILL SOMEBODY SAY HER FU**ING NAME SO SHE'LL SHUT UP"!!!!!! Ahhhh the memories....

Not to complicate things, but some people call that "propaganda." Indeed, Foucault might maintain that symbols and signs are more oppressive and "totalitarian" than certain kinds of institutional violence. I personally don't think this song is working at that level of depth, though. Unless of course, we read it, self-referentially, as an oppressive text in itself... (oh no!...runs screaming from own brain....)

I think you're missing something, which is easy to do when you paint with broad strokes. You're right to be wary of those who would bring about their vision of a better world by consolidating power and imposing it by force. But I don't believe Chapman is talking about a Khmer Rouge style overthrow here; she is talking about bringing about a societal change through widespread personal change, changing our world by choosing to change our minds. Notice the tools she chooses: "new symbols, new signs, new language." Not "new institutions," not "new leaders." If the 20th century taught us nothing else, it's that the latter (powerful institutions) can't change the former (human communities) from the top down. But she is holding out the hope that if we remember our shared humanity, we can revive our human community so that the institutions have no choice but to listen.
Just don't dig Tracy Chapman. She really never has done it for me.
Hopefully, this song won't.... A ho hummer
Mmm... didgeridoo
Go Dems!!! House *and* Senate. Start all over, indeed!
Just sorta lays there.
Well...she Rocks in concert...the best performer at the 1st Lilith Festival.
I have Tracy's first 3 CDs and listened to them for years. I think she took a break after her third album and this was the long awaited fourth record. Never bought it and hardly ever heard anything from it – nor from her more recent CDs. I think I like her old stuff better but maybe I'm just not in the mood …
This song and Tracey Chapman in general defines the "Ho hum" rating.
I remember hearing her once say that she considered music to be her hobby. She went to school to explore a career in anthropology. What an amazing talent.
normally I dig Tracy .. but this is too repetitive

Didgeridoo-da-day! (the second recent song to feature that lovely instrument) I must disagree with some comments... I believe Tracy has a beautifully soulful voice.
