I wonder why we waste time, we have so little at all,
I wonder if there really is a crystal ball.

I wonder about things brewing beneath, will it erupt,
I wonder what becomes of the underdeveloped.

I wonder how much life is motivated by inequalities of power,
I wonder if there really is an ivory tower.

I wonder why emotional pain, you feel physical,
I wonder why love has to be so cynical.

I wonder what a miracle really looks like,
I wonder why they call us a dyke.

I wonder if I will ever grow up,
I wonder if I will drink from the golden cup.

I wonder what makes a person hate,
I wonder why you would tempt the hand of fate.

I wonder why I'm angry my whole life,
I wonder why I miss my wife.

I wonder why love makes it hard to breathe,
I wonder if my opponent has something up his sleeve.

I wonder if I'm living or slowly dying,
I wonder why people give up without even trying.
