As water drips in the bucket, I could add another drop
But I've got a feeling…that drop won't fix the leaky ceiling
Sage is talking about how people give their sympathies when they hear about the situations. They could pity them for the misfortune of their situation which doesn’t offer any real help for them, its just a drop of water in a bucket. Sage doesn’t want to be like everyone else, he doesn’t want to offer his pity, he wants to help create a solution.
