Curtis 2003 A & M RECORDS Performed by The Blackeyed Peas <-- listen to and watch the video 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 terrorist here livin' In the USA, the big CIA, the blood through crypts 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 ya 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 this'll set it straight Take control of your mind and meditate Let your soul gravitate to the love y'all, y'all Chorus: 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 some guidance from above, Cause people got me, got me questioning Where is the love [love], where is the love, where is the love, Where is the love, the love, the love It just ain't the same, all ways have changed New days are strange is the the world the same? If love and peace are so strong, why are there pieces of love that don't belong Nations dropping bombs, chemical gasses 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', people keep on givin' Making wrong decisions only visions of them dividends 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, come on [I don't know] Where's the truth y'all, come on [I don't know] Oh where's the love y'all Chorus I feel the weight of the world over my shoulder As I'm getting older, y'all people gets colder Most of us only care about money makin' Selfishness got us following in 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 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 Gotta keep my faith alive 'til 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 some guidance from above, cause people got me, got me questioning 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 Somethin's wrong with it, somethin's wrong with it Somethin's wrong with the wor-, wor-, world here We only got [one world, one world] That's all we got [one world, one world]
