New Lyrics
By Adrian Singh (with assistance from Alex Skolnick, 11th Grade)

Verse
What's the world turning into mama
The world changed when we got Obama
I think the world's addicted to violence
Only things that will bring you trauma

Overseas we trying to stop violence
Walk into graveyards hearing silence
There is a solution not destruction
We shall rebuild, start with construction

Shootings with politicians having no shame
All presidents are acting the same
No pride, no justice, and inequality
Acting out of turn without any loyalty.

All the bombs burning down trees
Air pollution, started with factories
Over here with racial discrimination
Seeing ISIS with intimidation.

Saw the politicians make us wanna take
Gives up time to retaliate
Anger is what you demonstrate
So take a minute and meditate
The bombs we drop kill our agriculture
Armies raiding just like vultures




Original Lyrics
By the Black-Eyed Peas

Verse:
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 things that'll bring you trauma

Overseas, yeah, we try 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

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, 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


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 us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love [4x]
The love, the love
