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...

    everyone here thinks this song is about the war in iraq. that is but a small part of the true meaning of this song. this song refers to the fight against racism that took place in our country. it talks about how kids are getting involved in gangs and caught up in a whole lot of crap that should be avoided. people are being killed form these decisions people are being hurt nothing good is coming from the surplus of hate that this country has for numerous and absurd things such as war in iraq when we should not be there anymore. we are worrying about problems that are occurring in other countries rather than fixing out situation. we need to fix our situation. we cant be going to war as it says in the song "if you practice what you preach then you turn the other cheek" this is not only referring to war but also minor issues that take place here in the united states whether it be racism or anything at all. this song is basically calling out all of the hatred and all of the un-needed crap that takes place in todays society

    I think the song is about lack of love in the world and how everybody is causing madness. I think the point of the song is to make people realise that we should be spreading love and not hate and stop discriminating each other and causing world havoc. They are expressing all issues and saying it in. meaningful and emotive way to get listeners to understand this major problem.

    It is about the disintergration of society's values.
    Examples:
    "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"
    Racism is being expressed in violent/humiliating methods nowadays.

    "As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
    Most of us only care about money makin'
    Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction"

    Materialism is getting more common. Making money seems to be the most important thing in people's minds now.

    "Wrong information always shown by the media
    Negative images is the main criteria
    Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
    Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema"

    It seems that the youth are easily influenced by the media. This leads to the rise in juvenile crime and violent acts.

    I believe that the message that this song is trying to show us is how people are growing with all this racism in their hearts because this is what they have showed them.

    is about the 9/11 attack and that it caused a lot of things that left people conflicted and a gaping hole in that needed to be filled so they fled and went to gangs to satisfy them

    I personally believe that this song is about the hate and lack of love and respect that is happening in our country at the moment.

    I think that it is about how nobody is loving we are all joining gangs like crips young bloods and all that also everyone killing its like there is like 4 people getting killed everyday like black eyed peas say where is the love why don't all the people that do these bad things take a brake go to your family spend a week there maybe then there see that the world is a way better place when were loving not hating .Think about it we could change the world and this song is so the truth so if you have family or a friend that you know do this kind of bad stuff show them that they can change .Maybe even have them listen to this song just show them love.WE can change the world .I think that this is a really good song and it is the truth.So please and try to make the world a better place.So yes I think that this song is about people always hating instead of loving .
