Where Is the Love?

Spot on lyrics by the The Black Eyed Peas, Where Is the Love? (recording finished on 03/03/03):
What's wrong with the world mama people living like they ain't got no mamas? I think the whole world's addicted to the drama, only attracted to things that'll bring trauma.

Overseas, yeah we trying to stop terrorism but we still got terrorists here living in the USA: the big CIA, the Bloods, 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.

Yeh, badness is what you demonstrate and that's exactly how anger works and operates. Man, you got to have love just to set it straight, take control of your mind and meditate, let your soul gravitate to the love.

People killing, people dying, children hurt and you hear them crying. Can you practice what you preach and would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us, send us some guidance from above because people got me, got me questioning, where is the love?

It just ain't the same, always unchanged, 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 dropping bombs, chemical gases filling lungs of little ones with ongoing suffering as the youth die young. So ask yourself is the loving really gone? So I could ask myself, really what is going wrong?

In this world that we living in, people keep on giving in, making wrong decisions, only visions of their dividends.

Not respecting each other, deny thy brother, a war is going 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 yo? Come on? I don't know. Where's the truth yo? Come on? I don't know. Where's the love?

People killing, people dying, children hurt and you hear them crying. Can you practice what you preach and would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us, send us some guidance from above because people got me, got me questioning, where is the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder, as I'm getting older, people get colder. Most of us only care about money making, selfishness got us following the wrong direction.

Wrong information always shown by the media, negative images are the main criteria, infecting the young minds faster than bacteria, kids want to 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're spreading animosity, lack of understanding, leading us away from unity.

That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling under, that's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling down, there's no wonder why sometimes I'm feeling under, got to keep my faith alive until love is found.

Now ask yourself 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 because people got me, got me questioning, where is the love?

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, something's wrong with it, something's wrong with the world, world, world. Yeh, we only got one world, one world. That's all we got, one world, one world.
