Where is the Love?

“Where is the Love?”

Black Eyed Peas

what’s wrong with the world, mama?
people livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama
only attracted to the things that’ll bring the trama
overseas yeah, we tryin’ to stop terrorism
but we still got terrorists here livin’
in the U.S.A, the big C.I.A
the bloods & the crips, and the KKK
but if you only have love for your own ways
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 ya gotta have love, this’ll set us straight
take control of your mind and meditate
let your soul gravitate, to the love ya’ll

people killin’, people dyin’
children hurt and ya hear them cryin’
can you practice what you preach,
and 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?

it just ain’t the same
old ways have changed
new days are strange, is world insane?
if love and peace is 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 can ask myself, really, what is going wrong
with this world that we livin’ in
people keep on givin in
makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
not respectin’ eachother, deny thy brother
a war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover
the truth is kept secret, and swept under the rug
if you never know truth, then you never know love
where’s the love ya’ll? c’mon

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
as I’m getting older, ya’ll 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 the fairness and equality
instead of spreading love we spreadin’ animosity
lack of understandin’ 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
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin under
gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
