Where is the Love?

As relevant today as it was in 2003!

 

What’s wrong with the world, mama?
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas.
I think the whole world addicted to the drama,
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma

Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorismbut we still got terrorists here livin’in the USA:the big CIA, the Bloods and The Crips and the KKK

But if you only have love for your own race, then you only leave space to discriminate.
And to discriminate only generates hate. And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah.

Madness is what you demonstrate and that’s exactly how anger works and operates.
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight.
Take control of your mind and meditate.
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all.

People killin’, people dyin’,
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’?
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love?
Where is the love, the love, the love?

It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed.
New days are strange, is the world insane?
If love and peace are so strong, why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?

Nations droppin’ bombs, chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones with ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young.
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone

So I could ask myself really what is goin’ wrong
In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividend,s
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother!
A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover

The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug.
If you never know truth then you never know love.
Where’s the love, y’all? (I don’t know)
Where’s the truth? (I don’t know)
Where’s the love, y’all?

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us.
Send some guidance from above.
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love?
Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder.
As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder.
Most of us only care about money makin’.
Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction.

Wrong information always shown by the media.
Negative images is the main criteria,
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria.
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema.

Whatever happened to the values of humanity?
Whatever happened to fairness and equality?
Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity,
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity.

That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under.
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down.
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under.
Gotta keep my faith alive ’til love is found.

Now ask yourself

Where is the love?

Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love?

Sing with me y’all:
One world, one world (We only got)
One world, one world (That’s all we got)
One world, one world
And something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah
We only got
(One world, one world)
That’s all we got
(One world, one world)
