DON’T YOU WONDER WHY

Don't you wonder why there are people on the streets

waiting for a meal, searching for some place to sleep

some are young, some are getting old 

few have hope but they need something real to hold

some know better, some don't know

others got homes but they're safer sleeping in the cold 

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why


Don't you wonder everybody's in need

you look upon the others as you look down upon your feet

You say your running low while you buy Mercedes Benz

Call it half a dollar; someone calls it fifty cents

You're a catalyst and a criminal but they don't treat you any less

as you shout towards the alter and demand your forgiveness

Don't you wonder why 

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why


When something catches your ever knowing eyes

bet you wonder why 

it took you such a long time

You can't just sit there curtains drawn

wishing that you could see more

Don't you wonder why 

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why


Don't you wonder why there is murder on T.V

youth robbing stores, lovers who beat

Everybody's at war against someone with more

the rich fight the rich, the poor feed the poor

too afraid to look upon a helpless scream

While children shoot all there friends 

on a television screen

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why


So while you sit there counting all the chips stacked in front of you

and redefine your existence with your every slippery move

You've tried to be sincere but sarcasms dripping from your tongue

You're forsaken, you leave every conversation 

like you've won

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why


When something catches your ever knowing eyes

bet you wonder why it took you such a long time

You can't just sit there curtains drawn

wishing that you could see more

Don't you wonder why 

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why 

Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder why
