    Great Song - Where Is The Love

    This song has been stuck in my head since I first heard it a few weeks ago... probably because it is so good and it describes the main problem in this country, and the world, today.

    The Song is titled Where Is The Love, by the Black Eyed Peas.

    Lyrics:

    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 the things that'll bring you trauma
    Overseas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
    But 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
    Badness is what you demonstrate
    And that's exactly how a n**** works and operates
    Now, 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
    And would you turn the other cheek


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


    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love
    The love, the love


    It just ain't the same, always unchanged
    New days are strange, is the 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 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 dividends
    Not respectin' each other, denyin' 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, come on (I don't know)
    Where's the truth, y'all, come on (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
    And would you turn the other cheek


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


    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (Love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (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' our own 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
    Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
    Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
    Instead of spreading love we spreading animosity
    Lack of understanding, leading lives 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 to lovers bound

    Now ask yo'self

    Where is the love
    Where is the love
    Where is the love
    Where is the love


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


    Sing with me y'all
    One love, one love
    We only got
    One love, one love
    That's all we got
    One love, one love

    Something's wrong with it (Yeah)
    Something's wrong with it (Yeah)
    Something's wrong with the big whole world

    We only got
    One love, one love
    That's all we got
    One love, one love
    -Steven
