A song from the Civil-Rights period of soul and funk, this Parliament song speaks to the population as much today as it did during the time of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. When will people start to understand to help each other, even if they look different or live in a poorer country, deserved to be helped because it is the right thing to do. War is not the answer to start progressing, it can only lead to more destruction and destabilization. This song is a commentary about how people could come together and learn to love one another but are too occupied with the common luxuries of social lifestyle. During the time this song was written the Black Panther Party was preaching revolution and Vietnam was stirring up a lot of war cheering. Parliament pointed out that happiness and peace was becoming more and more unattainable within a world obsessed with violence.
Happiness and peace
Is getting more and more out of my reach
Violence and revolution
Seems to be all that the people wanna preach
You're gunning down your brothers
Molestin' your sisters and your mothers in the streets
Whoa-oh the President's talkin' 'bout change
But nobody's got sense enough to come in out of the rain Hey hey hey (whoa)
Hey hey hey (whoo)
When will the people start gettin' together?
Learnin' to live and love one another?
Hey hey hey now (oh)
When will the people stop fightin' each other?
Learning to give and help one another
Hey hey hey now
War's my Golden Age
I've been shipped from the cradle to the grave
Put a gun in their hands
Saying it's your duty to kill another man
Guess somebody's been there to the mothers
Makin' widows of the sweethearts and lovers
And this is our land, mmhmm
The President's talkin' 'bout change
But nobody's got sense enough to come in out of the rain
