What's wrong with the world mama?
People living like ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring the trauma

Overseas yeah we tryin’ to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA the big CIA
The Bloodz 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 hatin’ you're bound to get irate, yeah

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger 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

People killing, people dying
Children hurtin’ an’ ya’ hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach?
An’ 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 always have changed
New days are strange is the world the insane?
If love and peace 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 strong?
So I can ask myself, really what is going wrong?

With this world that we living in, people keep on giving in
Makin’ wrong decisions only visions of them livin’
And not respecting each other denying thy brother
The wars' going on but the reasons' 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 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?

People killing people dying
Children hurtin’ an’ ya’ hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach?
An’ 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?
Where is the love?

Love
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm getting older y'all 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 their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna’ act like what the see in the cinemas y’all

Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and 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
It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feeling under
Gotta keep my faith alive, until the 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?

Now 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’ wrong with it
Somethin’ wrong with it
Somethin’ wrong with the wo-wo-world yeah

We only got
One world, one world
That’s all we got
One world, one world
