Not enough money for the young old and the poor. But for war there is always more

This morning I was reading this article and I seriously couldn't believe my eyes. The poor and disfranchised of the US get screwed from this debt deal and the pentagon gets $50 billion extra. Which immediately brought me to this song, and the line: Not enough money for The young, the old and the poor But for war there is always more When will there be a time to love


Stevie Wonder feat India Arie: A Time To Love

for all you non-spotify members check here

We have time for racism
We have time for criticism
Held bondage by our ism's
When will there be a time to love

We have time to debate religion
For passing bills and building prisons
For building fortunes and passing judgements
When will there be a time to love

At this moment in time we have a choice to make
To either walk a path of love
Or be crippled by our hate

We have time to cause pollution
We have time to cause confusion
All wrapped up in our own illusions
When will there be a time to love

We make time to conquer nations
Time for oil exploration
Time for hatred, violence and terrorism

When will there be a time to love

At this moment in time
We have a choice to make
Father God is watching
While we cause mother earth so much pain
It's such a shame

Not enough money for
The young, the old and the poor
But for war there is always more
When will there be a time to love

We make time for buying status
Or paying bills and paying taxes
But we will pay the consequences
If we don't make the time to love

Now's the time to pay attention
Yes now is the time... to love...
A time love... Love...
A time to Love
Please, please won't you tell me
When will there be a time to love...
