    "Whats Going On"

    Marvin Gaye - Whats Going On

    This songs come to mind when i look at the state of the world today. Its filled with War and Hate.


    Mother, mother
    There's too many of you crying
    Brother, brother, brother
    There's far too many of you dying
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today

    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

    Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
    Oh, but who are they to judge us
    Simply because our hair is long
    Oh, you know we've got to find a way
    To bring some understanding here today
    Keep it clean!!!

    Only if you watch the news.

    Like Bill Hicks (RIP) once said:

    Watch CNN Headline News for 1 hour, it's the most depressing thing you'll ever do.

    "WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS, HOMELESS, RECESSION, DEPRESSION. WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS, HOMELESS …"

    Then, you look out your window … [makes cricket noises] Where's all this tulip happening?

      Its happening everywhere. Thousands die everyday because of bombs, lack of food, lack of medicine and lack of support.

      All the while the rich get richer and fatter and fatter.
      Keep it clean!!!

        From a modern Hip Hop perspective: Public Enemy - He Got Game

        It says much the same thing

        If man is the father of the son
        Is the center of the earth
        In the middle of the universe
        Why is this verse comin
        Six times rehearsed
        Dont freestyle much so
        I write em like such
        Amongst the fiends
        Controlled by the screens
        What does it all mean
        All this tulip Im seein
        Human beings scream vocal javelins
        Signs of a local nigga unravelin
        My wandering
        Got my ass wondering
        Where christ is
        In all this crisis
        Hatin satan
        Never knew what nice is
        Check the papers
        While I bet on isis
        More than your eye can see
        And ears can here
        Year by year
        All the sense disappears
        Nonsense perseveres
        Prayers laced wit fear
        Beware
        2 triple 0 is near

        Damn was it somethin I said
        Pretend you dont see
        So you turn your head
        Race scared of its shadow
        Does it matter?
        Thought areparations
        Got em playin wit the population
        Nothing to lose
        Everythings approved
        People used
        Even murders excused
        White men in suits
        Dont have to jump
        Still theres 1001 ways
        To lose wit the shoes
        God takes care of ol folks and fools
        While the devil takes care
        Of makin the rules
        Folks dont even own themselves
        Payin mental rent
        To corporate president
        1 outta 1 million residents
        Be a dissident
        Who aint kissin it
        The politics of chains and whips
        Got the sick
        Missin chips and championships
        Whats love got to do
        Wit what you got
        Dont let a win get to your head
        Or a loss to your heart
        Nonsense perseveres
        Prayers heed wit fear
        Beware
        2 triple o is near

        It might feel good
        Sound a lil somethin
        Damn the game
        If it dont mean nuttin
        What is game who got game
        Wheres the game
        In life
        Behind the game
        Behind the game
        I got game
        She got game
        We got game
        They got game
        He got game
        That millenium
        Just be killin em
        Scary
        Like lies buried in the library
        When did a state pen
        Correct anything
        When piles of us
        Still be catchin the bus
        When stacks of cats
        Packin laundry mats
        Paid the preachers back
        But where the teachers at?
        I aint even gotta ask it
        As whos underpaid and
        Fouled at the basket
        I cant blame the envy
        At who gettin the benjis
        And takin grants for granted
        Last I checked pyramids
        Wasnt built like projects
        Or on government checks
        Modern day thugs
        Aint got no guts
        Pardon the expression
        Under governor nuts
        Last time in a church
        Be the last time in a church
        Dead pledged alliance
        To many cds and movies
        Leaving reality
        Believing fantasy
        Bleedin fatalities
        Too many formalities
        Prayers laced wit fear
        Beware
        2 triple o is here
        Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

          Some things in life are bad
          They can really make you mad
          Other things just make you swear and curse.
          When you're chewing on life's gristle
          Don't grumble, give a whistle
          And this'll help things turn out for the best...

          And...always look on the bright side of life...
          Always look on the light side of life...


          If life seems jolly rotten
          There's something you've forgotten
          And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
          When you're feeling in the dumps
          Don't be silly chumps
          Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

          And...always look on the bright side of life...
          Always look on the light side of life...


          For life is quite absurd
          And death's the final word
          You must always face the curtain with a bow.
          Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
          Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

          So always look on the bright side of death
          Just before you draw your terminal breath


          Life's a piece of tulip
          When you look at it
          Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
          You'll see it's all a show
          Keep 'em laughing as you go
          Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

          And always look on the bright side of life...
          Always look on the right side of life...
          (Come on guys, cheer up!)
          Always look on the bright side of life...
          Always look on the bright side of life...
          (Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
          Always look on the bright side of life...
          (I mean - what have you got to lose?)
          (You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
          What have you lost? Nothing!)
          Always look on the right side of life...
