For a long time I had the hunch that there was more to this album than just being a bunch of political cover songs. Eventually I realized there was a story progression throughout this album.
Here's the progression in simple terms:
This song is a warning of destruction to come.
This song suggests an alternative to the previous song, saying we can have heaven on Earth if we come to gether.
3. Peace Love and Understanding:
This song describes another person who is very hopeless and doubtful that we can have world peace.
4. What's Goin On:
This is an answer back, a stronger argument that peace can happen.
A negative response, the hopeless person is accepting that they have enemies.
