What’s Going On?

What’s going on?
Tell me

People dying
People crying
Lord help us

Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying

Oh, brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
(That’s right)

You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

Oh my father, father
We don’t need to escalate

You see war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate

You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

Barricades, can’t block our way
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see

Oh what’s going on?
What’s going on?
Yeah what’s going on?
Ahh what’s going on?

What’s going on in a world filled with pain
Where’s the love for which we pray
What’s going on?
When our children can’t play
Homeless can’t eat
There’s got to be a better way
What’s going on
When we politically blind
Can’t see the signs of endangered times
What’s going on

What’s goin’ on in the world today?
I’d rather be dead than to turn my head away
We got this first world vision too
Comfy to lift up our hands in the air
And cry for a switch

Father, father
(Father help us, come on)
Everybody thinks we’re wrong

Oh, but who are they to judge us
Together we can all be strong

United we stand, united we fall

Oh you know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

Barricades can’t block our way
Don’t punish me with brutality
Baby talk to me
So you can see

Yeah, what’s going on
Hey, what’s going on
Somebody tell me what’s going on
I’ll tell you what’s goin’ on-uh

What’s going on ‘cross seas
Every minute a child dies by this disease
In record numbers indeed
Got momma’s crying out please
My baby hold on
My child ain’t done nothing wrong
Still I want to holler
Ask them why they don’t bother
Oh no, oh no
Make me turn to my father
And ask him why they all got a trapped soul

I can feel what was bothering Marvin
Why his words forever remain
Dealing with these modern day problems
‘Cause of ignorance surrounding me and my constituents
Too many infected Too many lives diminishing
Nobody say Protestants, Jews, Blacks, and Whites, Latinos and Asians
Pray together
Less fight
We better unite
As genocide chemical war
And the rich and the poor
Know that God delivers a cure

It’s a shame our reality is devastating
People praying for a cure
Dying while they’re waiting
Ask the Lord for the comfort and strength to face it
All the kids with dreams Won’t get the chance to chase it
Makes me sad
Think about the lives they would’ve had
Think about the orphan babies got no moms and dads
How can we sit back and not try to make it right
We gotta come together
We gotta fight for life

Somebody tell me what’s going on (what’s going on)
We got human beings using humans for a bomb
But everyone wanna live
Don’t nobody really want to die
You feeling me right
I can’t be watching people die (die)
And watching people cry
Let me break it down for a minute
If there’s enough room here for you and me
There’s plenty of room for some humanity

Somebody tell me what’s going on (what’s going on?)
