A lyrical analysis of the song where is the love by black eyed peas
Black eyed peas songs
No longer had tranquility present in the everyday life with people attuned themselves only to the things that benefit them. The feeling of inequality and disparity with the other community often results in the ethnic revolt and pandemonium. Growing up, I heard the original version of the song and I would listen to it on repeat. The narrator ask the question on why the peoples nowadays acts and behave like they are not being teaching about the value of morality and behavioral acts. They created the song Where is the Love to show just how far the world has fallen and that we need to change our ways to save ourselves. Instead of cultivating and instill the true love among society, people choose to be ignorant and set themselves apart from the other person in the community creating absolute separation from one to another.

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 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, y'all People killin', people dyin' Children hurt can you hear them cryin'? Instead of practicing what their religion taught them to do, they simply turn away from the scene and pretend like nothing happen for them to worry. One of the reasons music is powerful is that it is useful in mood management. The values that should be sought are fairness, equality, understanding, and unity. According to him, there is a disjointed action between the acts of stopping violence outside the country with the acts of promoting violence inside the country. Take the words of Where is the Love to heart and simply love. And those understanding may be a great help in order for themselves to find the true love and peace.
Musically, when analyzing charts of the top songs ofhip-hop and rap artist were on top of the billboards. The chorus pleads to God for guidance in surviving a world where love is absent. There is a large amount of crime oversees in the form of terrorists organizations.
The Black Eyed Peas are trying to say that the CIA is doing something behind our backs and that the CIA and the government in general are not being truthful and should not be trusted.
It just ain't the same, all the ways of change New days are strange, is the world insane If love and peace is so strong Why the pieces of love don't belong The changes in the human capacity in manifesting their love towards each other are corrupted by the insanity of the human race itself lead to the loveless atmosphere of human kind.
This song is telling us what this world of ours is turning into without love, true genuine love. Ultimately the song is successful in its purpose.
The Black Eyed Peas believe that the media is not telling the truth, glorifying violence and desensitizing the youth to violence.
Finding unity in our world today is extremely difficult when things like judgement, envy, and lack of compassion take over. It just ain't the same, always unchanged New days are strange, is the world insane?
