Picture this
There's a girl who was raised
To believe that love is suffering
She grows up and the man
Like a father gives her a wedding ring

Now she walks around, a constant companion
All resentment, fear and sadness
The lack of laughter turns to cancer
This song is dedicated to her

The worst disease in the world
It's not cancer, it's not AIDS
The cure will not be found
By any physicist or scientist

The Cause and the cure lives in every single one of us
The worst disease in the world is hate
And the cure for hate is love
Oh love, oh love, oh love

Picture this
There's a boy who was abused
When he was twelve years old
Now guilt lives in the pit of his stomach
And even though he's grown

He believes he deserves to be punished
Now he lives his life fast and reckless
Searching for love, falling over & helpless
This song is dedicated to him

The worst disease in the world
It's not cancer, it's not AIDS
The cure will not be found
By any physicist or scientist

The Cause and the cure lives in every single one of us
The worst disease in the world is hate
And the cure for hate is love
Oh love, oh love, oh love

It may seem that I'm looking at the world
Through rose coloured glasses
I believe that it's so simple
But sometimes it looks complicated

God's love is like sunshine, it's there whether or not we recognize it
The most powerful energy in the universe
And all we have to do is use it

You may think
That there's nothing in the world
That you can do but that ain't the truth
The fact of the matter is
A better world begins with you

Be the best person you can be
Pass those values to your family
And when you pray for those you love
Say a prayer for humanity, (say a prayer)

Our Father, who art in Heaven
Say a prayer, say a prayer
Say a prayer for humanity
Say a prayer for humanity

Say a prayer for humanity
Say a prayer for humanity
Say a prayer for humanity
Say a prayer for humanity
Say a prayer for humanity
