    Mods I hope you allow this but I like people to view the lyrics to a last years longest chart toping song. Feel free to let me know you think.

    Sorry, but posting copyrighted material wholesale like this is not allowed - the copyright owners need to give permission, or it needs to fall under "fair use".

    Haven't heard the song, myself, but the topic certainly seems relevant - not sure it's not more for the Politics section than Belief & Spirituality, depending on which lines, though....

    Snippets (picked by me... not Postmaster, in case it's not clear) follow:

    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    ..
    Let your soul gravitate to the love y'all
    ...
    If love and peace so strong
    Why are there pieces of love that don't belong?
    ...
    Only visions of them livin and
    Not respecting each other
    ...Where's the love y'all?

    Dear PM

    Right on! Truly inspired words.

    The music industry do their best to inspire the young and bring the real issues to the fore.

    This quote from Jimi Hendrix sums it all up.

    When the power of love
    is more powerful then the
    love of power then there
    will be peace on earth.

    Sadly the people have not taken responsibility for aeons of time, it is scarry for them to realise they are co-creators of everything that happens on planet earth. People are conditioned to be sheep from childhood, society likes sheep because they do as they are told, they can be herded through fear, but yet we are all being called by GOD to be Christ Lionhearts in GOD's name. Sheep follow by Lions lead.

    And so it is the Lion of Judah, Christ himself is guiding us to take back our power and take responsibility for our creation and what we are doing to planet earth and its children.

    Through love, in love, being love
    Through peace, in peace, being peace

    Love beyond measure

    The most they will do is tell me to remove the content of which I would be happy to do, if they don't it either means they are not bothered or they haven't come accross it.

    I'm so sure of myself I put my site at risk :)

    We shoud be people of reason :) For I'm merely promoting the song.

    The RIAA isn't famed for reason, though - old ladies and little girls have already been slammed hard with big fines.

    Even if the RIAA is a [insert favourite expletive here] there are general copyright issues that have to be dealt with. Not just in music - and it's an issue we have to be really careful of on forums. Small excerpts are fair use, but that's all we can go for.
