Where Is The Love? (Album Version)

Where Is The Love? (Album Version)

The Black Eyed Peas

What's wrong with the world mama
People acting like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world's addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring the trauma
Over seas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorist 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
Yea, madness 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 y'all

[Chorus]
People killing, people dying
Children hurt and you hear them crying
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 questioning
Where is the love
Where is the 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 the same
If love and peace is so strong
Why are the 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 lovin' really gone
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
In this world that we livin' in
People keep on giving in
Making wrong decisions only visions of their difference
Not respecting each other
Denying thy brother
A war's going on, but the reasons 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, c'mon, I don't know
Where's the truth y'all, c'mon, I don't know
Where's the love y'all

[Chorus]

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm getting' older y'all people gets colder
Most of only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us following the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids want to act like what they see in the cinemas

Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love
We 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
It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Got to keep my faith alive 'till love is found

[Chorus]
